Tools and Materials
Here's What You'll Need:
A branch (mine was 54" long)
Twine, String or ribbon samples (to hang the finished piece)
Step 1: Get Your Ribbon Ready
Start by winding the sari silk ribbon into a ball. This makes it much easier to work with! Next, cut the ribbon into 48-inch-long pieces.
Step 2: Lark's Head Knot Time
Next, make a lark’s head knot using a piece of ribbon.
Do this by folding the ribbon in half down the middle. Place the folded end under the branch. Bring the two free ends of the ribbon over the branch and through the loop made by the folded end. Gently tighten the knot.
Repeat this process with all ribbon pieces. My branch measured 54 inches long, but I only placed ribbons going 32 inches across the middle.
Step 3: Show off your Project
Time to display your beautiful natural wall-hanging! I used two pieces of extra twine I had laying around and tied to each end of the branch.
I chose to create my Branch Hanging on my front porch while my daughter played in the yard. I got so many compliments from people walking by that I chose to leave it there - I just love the boho flair. 💜
And there you have it. An easy to make DIY Earth Day project, made entirely from recycled materials.
