MAKE IT / 51

between decorating my studio and redoing my bedroom i have a lot of wall space to cover. i am really into the idea of using wall hangings, i love the organic texture they add to a room. i’m excited to share this DIY that jessica created for us, the muted tones with the copper accents is right up my alley…

what you’ll need:

• Thick yarn in varying textures (we purchased four wool blends from JoAnns and used a total of seventeen 40” pieces.)
• Everbilt 1/4 in. x 10 ft. Copper Soft Type Refrigeration Coil
• 10 pieces of ¼ in. Copper Coupling
• Measuring tape
• Scissors
• China marker
• Wire cutter

how to make them:

• Unroll and straighten 30” of copper rod. Copper is soft enough that you can bend it with your hands.

• Using a china marker, measure and mark at 5”, 15”, 25”, and 30”

• Cut at 30” mark using wire cutter (or hacksaw.)

• Bend at marked points to create a triangle.

• Push the two ends together – they will be concealed by the yarn.

• Fold pieces of yarn in half and tie to frame using a larks head knot.

  

• Attach the copper couplings to the ends of the yarn by threading the yarn through and then tying a knot. Distribute the 10 pieces evenly across the bottom edge of the wall hanging.

• You will have enough materials left to make two more wall hangings. Experiment with making different sizes of isosceles triangles and using varied yarn lengths.

Pretty easy, right? We hope you give them a shot!

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the other person’s webpage link on your page at appropriate place and
    other person will also do similar in favor of you.

    It’s hard to come by experienced people on this subject,
    but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice
    would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

    Online marketing – It’s about more than having a pretty
    website. If you do not develop this skill, you are
    going to find yourself stuck in thousands of half finished projects and an IM venture that won’t ever be a success.
    When looking to jump into the internet marketing realm, first thing
    is first; set up shop.

    Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thank you!
