diy woven wall hanging

DIY woven wall hanging // ShescortsI updated a few things in our master bedroom recently since Archie thought it was a fun game to try and rip the black and white print we had above the bed off the wall. He finally succeeded and we were without anything up there for a while but then I got this idea, a tasseled, woven, wall art of an idea. You may have caught a few shots of it on and I got a lot of inquiries about it, so today I’m sharing how I made it!

Supplies Needed:
– I used this rug as the base
– White Jute Twine (I used 12 rolls)
– A small screwdriver (that is what I used but a crochet hook or an oversize needle would be way easier, I am always just grabbing what I have in mind and making things up as I go. Hindsight is a wonderful thing).
– A few small finish nails

Step 1: Make the tassels. SO MANY TASSELS (for tassel making instructions see this DIY post here). I made these ones longer, using a 9″ square to wrap the twine around, but the process is the same.

Step 2: Lay the rug out on the floor and draw yourself some guidelines with a pencil to follow.

Step 5: Move your hands to the underside of the rug and knot the two pieces of twine together, securing the tassel to the rug.

Step 6: Work your way up the rug making sure to stagger the tassels so they don’t line up and it looks a little random.

And that is it! With all the twine I had to buy, this wasn’t an inexpensive DIY but it is exactly what I had in mind and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I have to say, making that many tassels was quite therapeutic and attaching them was oddly extremely satisfying. Soooo…who wants one?!

  • How many times did you wrap around the 9″ piece? For the pillows you said 50 but I would image that is much to thick for this. Thanks!

  • Hi Shescorts!

    This has been on my to-do list for forever, and I’m just now getting a chance to tackle it! Question! There are two colors available on Amazon, white or natural. Could you share which one it is? I’m guessing natural, but I just wanted to make sure! Thanks so much!
