Have you seen the hand woven wall hangings all over Pinterest and Etsy?
These beautiful pieces are HARD to make, well at least for me, I tried and failed.
So I thought I would try something way more simple!
Okay, remember making mini pom poms out of yarn by wrapping around a fork when you were little? Well, I made a bunch of pom poms in all different colors and sizes and used them as a unique piece of art in our guest bedroom.
Its really simple after creating the pom poms I just hot glued them onto whatever shape foam core board I wanted, in my case I used a circle. It would be really cool to do a triangle or other shapes too!
- Cut out your foam core board shape, draw on it what colors you may want to use so you get an idea of layout and color pallet.
- Start making those pom poms! You can do any size and I think it looks best with different sizes. Just wrap your yarn around a fork about 40 times and then tie it off really tight and cut the ends, make sure to trim your pom poms so they look even. I definitely should have done better at making them even and fuller, next time I make one I will be making sure that happens.
- Hot glue the pom poms in the spots you want, make sure to fill the space as tight as you can.
- Hang it up! I put mine on our shelf but you can hang it just as easily. Would be really cool hanging within a bunch of photos or art.
Tip: Make sure you make really full Pom Poms, and cut them down so they are even. It will make your art look more full.
I am definitely going to try this again, I used yarn I had around the house, but I think I will go out and get colors that will match better the next time I make it.
This is definitely something kids could do, you could use different glue that wasn’t hot if that is a concern. Great for snow days! I hope you enjoy this fun little DIY!
