Fiber Wall Art

DIY Fiber Wall Art @themerrythought There are so many gorgeous fiber weavings and wall art out there lately that I’ve been swooning over. I tried my hand at weaving some of my own a few months ago but I gave up. I’m not patient enough for projects that take more than a couple of hours. Ha! This little beauty takes just a few minutes and I love how it turned out! I made a few more versions of this yesterday afternoon and I’ve been brainstorming some exciting new projects inspired by these.
DIY Fiber Wall Art @themerrythought DIY Fiber Wall Art @themerrythought What you need:
-Metal hoop
-Wooden beads

How to make it:
-Use the wire to attach the d-ring to the top of your hoop. Just wrap it tightly around the two a few times and tuck behind to secure.
-Cut 11 even lengths of string and loop them around the d-ring (shown here.) *You can use a dab of hot glue on the back if the string is moving around too much.
-To add the beads just slide them over both of the middle strings and tie a knot underneath them.
-You can trim the ends at this point to make a design.
-Tie one loop of string around the top and tie a knot in the end to use to hang it on the wall.

      Hi Amber – we did see her post over on House Tweaking. She did list our DIY as the inspiration behind hers, and we’re glad to have inspired her project! We’re okay with inspiring others to do similar projects, and she was kind enough to list us as the source behind it. Thanks so much for watching out for us – we appreciate our readers having our back.ReplyCancel
