Hand weaved, hand tied, and macrame style wall hangings are so popular at the moment.
I wanted to temporarily fill a tricky space while I searched for the perfect piece of art, so I designed and made this easy wall hanging to add a focal point and some texture to the space.
This mini project was so simple and easy to do, it didn't take a huge amount of time and most importantly, it was a fun and enjoyable experience! This is also something you could do with a child as a decorative piece for their bedroom.
The wall hanging can be made to any size which suits the space. Why not give it a go? Here are some helpful tips:
Measure and then cut your piece of dowelling, give the ends a little sand with some sandpaper (or an emery board!) to smoothe them.
Here is the finished piece that I've hung on my wall as a focal point. As you can see, I've styled it beside a nice indoor plant and it looks right at home.
If you wanted to add extra colour and texture, you could also tear fabric into strips or use ribbons and knot the pieces in the same way. This would be fun in a child's room or nursery if you were on a small budget.
I'd love to what you think of this piece, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to send me pics of your own creation.
sometimes I wonder whether it might just be easier to surrender to the clutter that just keeps arriving into my home, instead of persevering in my quest to keep it under control.
