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
• 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!
