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.
