Every winter I seem to pick knitting back up, more evenings staying in the house leaves me with an itch to stay productive. My basket of yarn keeps growing year after year, and I noticed that the bottom is filled with half or smaller balls of yarn. I started thinking of things to do with these half used balls of yarn and stumbled upon yarn wall art.
Perfect for a space that needs to be filled beside my bed.
Using a variety of textures and colors, I tried a couple different types of wall hangings I first made the larger, but unfortunately it is just too large for the space I have.
I took note from Honestly WTF on creating the tassels. They have a great tutorial if you are interested. Craft stores and home improvement stores have wooden dowels for cheap, and a home improvement store will cut it to the lengeth you desire.
Next, I made this little cutie, and it is perfect. I used the bottom part of a wood hanger as the dowel.
Love the textures together.
A monochromatic scheme would make a great wall hanging too.
