Want to learn how to use natural wood stains?

 

SAFETY FIRST : Always wear the proper protection for the job. Always follow directions and warnings according to the label. Use only the tools you’re comfortable handling.

  Supplies :  

Wood Circles / Placemats

If you’re not confident in using a jigsaw, you can use circular dining placemats as an alternative. In this case, omit the jigsaw for scissors.
I ordered these  1/4″ wood circles from amazon. It comes with six pieces, but you only need two for this project.

Yarn

Cream-colored yarn: You can find one similar at your local craft store. 

Multi-colored yarn: On amazon from Lion brand in the color, Chai Latte. They have several fun color varieties for you to choose from. 
Blue yarn: I searched several craft stores for the perfect blue. I found this one at Hobby Lobby and it’s the perfect shade of blue to match the Chai Latte yarn. I Love This Yarn, Dark Country Blue.

Natural Stains (Wine & Coffee)

Natural wood stain is a great, chemical-free alternative to store-bought stain. They are also likely already in your home.

Jigsaw + T-Shank Blade

You can also use a circular saw. Whatever you are most comfortable cutting your wood with is best.

Scissors

TIP: If you only have one circle you can reduce your project to 2 half circles and increase the length of the yarn. Hang it high on the wall and let the yarn hang low to give the illusion of a higher ceiling.

 AFFILIATES: I encourage you to reduce, reuse, & upcycle. But, if you do need to get any of the materials listed I have linked them for you above. I receive a small commission from them and appreciate you using them. I check for good pricing, quality reviews, & quick delivery options for your convenience.

The Inspiration…

When my mom saw the Tree Wall Branch Wall Hanging I did for my Mother-in-law, she asked where hers was. This time I wanted to try something different. I felt inspired to create this after seeing this Wall Hanging on Wayfair selling for $470. Which is crazy to me. Saving money isn’t the only perk though, it’s also completely customizable.

 

Make it …

STEP #1: 

CUT & STAIN 

Cut two of your wood circles in half Using a Jigsaw (you can also use a circular saw).  Next, stain your wood using your coffee and tea stains.

STEP #2: 

MEASURE & GLUE YARN

How long you cut your yarn depends on where you’d like to display your wall hanging. You can be exact with your measurements, but I eyeballed it. You can cut, and even out your yarn once it’s on your wall. Don’t forget to consider that your half circles will add some height to your project. I cut each piece twice the desired length and folded it in half before gluing (see image).
 
 
Apply a dab of hot glue to your wood and press the yarn down over top of the glue. Continue this process until completely covered. To achieve a “fuller” look place each piece of yarn as close as possible to the next without overlapping.
 
 
Repeat the same process for each half circle.

 

 

STEP #3:

HANG IT UP

Take a piece of yarn or twine and center it on the back of each half-circle. Make sure it is even and hot glue it in place. Now secure your handmade piece of art on your wall with a nail or tack. 
 
Congratulations! 
 
Now you can brag about how you made this gorgeous yarn wall hanging by hand to all your guests.
