HOW TO MAKE A DIY  WALL HANGING

I love statement art but sometimes it can be expensive! After buying a house two years ago, and then trying to furnish the whole thing, I know how expensive it can be. A few years back I owned a weaving shop and loved exploring fiber arts. I came up with the idea for this wall hanging/tapestry of sorts when looking at a lot of the random craft supplies I had around. Making the most of quarantine and trying to use what I have ya know? Pulling inspiration from a few of my favorite artists I pulled together materials that felt organic and natural. I wanted something modern and warm. This DIY wall hanging is inexpensive to make, pretty easy to complete, and will elevate any space! Ready to jump in? Here are the supplies and a step by step to complete the project. I also have an instagram highlight that walks through the process if you are more of a visual learner.
