In honor of Pride month, we've created this super cute wall hanging to spread some positive vibes and creativity!! It's super easy and is a great way to add a little pop of color to brighten up your home! :)
What you will need:
Lace Weight Yarn (I used our DGY Lace Weight in Exotic Rainbow)
Wooden Wreath Ring
Fake Flowers (optional)
Step One: (optional)
I decided that I didn't like the plain wood of my wreath ring, so I decided to paint it white. I think it makes the colors of the yarn pop a little brighter.
Now you need to wind the yarn into a ball so you can easily cut even strands of yarn. With our lace weight yarn, I've found the best way to wind it is to unskein the hank, toss it over my knees, and unwind that way :)
Once your yarn is unwound, cut the yarn into even strands. You want to cut the yarn long enough that it will make a flowing effect when it's knotted to the wreath ring. I made my strands about 15 inches long, but you can make yours as long or as short as you'd prefer!
I also cut the yarn into specific color combinations to create the rainbow effect. I like to cut the yarn and then sort them into neat little piles for easy access while I'm tying the yarn to the wooden wreath ring.
Now that your yarn is cut, you can start tying the yarn to your wooden wreath ring. Taking 4 strands at a time, tie a simple double knot around the wooden ring.
Continue tying your yarn strands around your wooden ring wreath in groups of four. The more strands you use, the fuller the wall hanging will look. You can use as much yarn as you'd like- I covered enough of the 'base' of the wreath ring to make sure my wall hanging was nice and full.
Step Six: (optional)
Once you've added all the yarn that you'd like, you can add fake flowers, leaves, or other decorations to cover up the knots if you don't like the rustic look (I've done this on another wall hanging that I made for Halloween!)
If you don't want to add on anything else to your wall hanging, you will still have a gorgeous piece of art that you made with love to hang on your wall! :)
