Hello everybody!

Starting off, I’m so sorry this post was delayed two days… I’ll be sure to post on time next time!

But today I’m showing you how to make this DIY Hanger, It’s really easy, cheap and only takes a few minutes to make.

What you’ll need:img_8626

  • A stick
  • Wool in a colour of your choice (preferably thick)
  • Some string /rope
  • Scissors

 

 

Step 1:

Start with cutting off your outer strings. Cut two strings off your prefered length. Make sure they are the same size.

Then, fold the string double lay your stick on it.

Take the ends and pass them through the loop.

Do the same for the other string.

 

Step 2:

Cut your next two strings, these should be a few inches longer than the last. You can choose what length you like.

Knot these to the stick the same way as we did in step 1, but make sure they are on the inside of the first two strings like this:

Step 3:

Repeat step 2 until¬†your stick is full, making sure each pair of new strings is longer than the last. At the end, for your final length only cut one string and tie it in the middle. Thick wool works best for this as you won’t have to tie nearly as many knots and it looks simpler and (in my opinion) nicer, but you can always try with thin wool if you want.

This is how it should look:

Step 4:

Take your other string or rope and make a knot in the middle. Then tie both ends to the stick like this:

And you’re done! When you hang it on a wall the strings will get pressed together a bit which gives it a nice effect.

And you’re done! I love the style it has, what do you think? let me know in the comments!

DIY Photo Wall Decor

FullSizeRender-9

Hello everybody,

I’m back with a new post! This week I’m showing you how to make this cool wall decor. It’s a cool way to display photo’s and it’s really easy to make.

What you’ll need:FullSizeRender-6

  • A canvas
  • String
  • Paint
  • A stapler
  • Photo’s/ postcards/ printed images of your choice

 

 

Step 1: Painting the canvas

I chose to use dark grey paint and paint it in thick streaks to create a rough effect, but you can choose any colour and style.

 

Step 2: Attaching the string

Once the paint has dried, turn around the canvas and use your stapler to staple the back. Make sure not to press too hard.

Now, knot the string to that staple.

Step 4: Creating the net

Then you turn the canvas around again and pull the string across it.

Turn the canvas around and staple the string to it.

Repeat this, stapling the string to the canvas every time. I chose to create an even net, but you can also do it randomly.

This is how it’ll look:

Step 4: The images.

Collect photo’s, postcards and printed images and stick them in the net at a crossing point. And that’s it!

I think it’s a cool decoration for your room and a great way to display photos and it’s really easy to customise and rearrange.

See ya next week!
