How To Craft Your Own DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

If you, like us, find yourself looking longingly at apartment eye candy on Pinterest but feel like you’re losing out on the aesthetic olympics, we’ve got the perfect craft for you: DIY Yarn Wall Hangings.

All it takes to craft these vibrant beauties is a few free hours, your most colorful skeins of yarn, and a dream to make your space look awesome.

By the way, we made these yarn wall hangings at a recent Make Night. That’s come and gone, but you drop in for an upcoming crafty Make Night here.
