How to instructions

  • 1

    Cut one hundred 120-cm-long pieces of thick cotton string.

  • 2

    Tie all of the strings to a stick using a larks head knot: Fold the string in half and place it under the stick. Run the string ends through the loop and pull to secure into a knot.

  • 3

    Soak the strings in water.

  • 4

    Mix the fabric dye, following the instructions on the package: one bowl of turquoise dye and one bowl of navy blue dye.

  • 5

    Dip all strings in the turquoise dye.

  • 6

    Hang up the stick so that you can dip the ends into the navy blue dye. Let them hang down into the dye bath for a few hours to let the yarn absorb the dye and to create a colour that shifts into turquoise. Once your wall hanging is the desired colour, remove the yarn from the dye and rinse thoroughly with water. Let dry.

  • 7

    Trim the ends, creating a nice zigzag pattern, and hang the wall hanging with a piece of string.

Make your own beautiful, unique wall hanging with yarn and fabric dye! You will also need an attractive, sturdy stick. So begin by taking a nice hike in the woods or park and look for a stick that's just waiting to adorn your wall. Then start cutting pieces of yarn and dye them - it's that easy!
