Boho wall yarn art diy

Anyone else always searching for affordable art to go on your walls? I know I am! I came across this on Pinterest the other day from an etsy shop. It was $80+ shipping! That is not affordable on my college student budget. It looked simple enough, so I thought I’d give it a try. It only cost me $10! I really dig it, and if you do too here’s how I made it!
What you need

  1. 2 rolls of yarn I bought this brand from JoAnn Craft Stores. You need 2 if you make a bigger one like I did. You can mix colors but I chose a solid.
  2. A wooden dowel Again, I chose this one from JoAnn. I read some reviews saying they weren’t crazy about it but I really liked it!

So here’s what you need to do!

  1. Measure the length you want it to be, then double it
  2. Do this five times with the same length, then bundle them together with the ends matching up
  3. Make a little slip knot on the dowel like this 
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until the rod is as full as you like.
  5. Cut a shape. Or don’t! I cut mine in the shape of a V but I’ve seen it done shortest to longest and really liked that as well. This is where you get to be creative!
  6. Use yarn to hang 
  7. Ta-Da! Enjoy your easy cheap art!
