Pom Pom Wall Hanging

Pom Pom Wall Hanging — Simple to make and so cute!Wall hangings are the décor de jour for bohemian, flower children these days. I can't say that I'm much of a hippie, but I can appreciate a little textile art in my home. I thought I'd put a bit of a refined, though simple, spin on a wall hanging that would add a pretty, delicate touch to any home.

Pom Pom Wall Hanging — Simple to make and so cute!Supplies:    
-handmade pom poms with tails still attached (check out this post to learn how to make them with scissors and a fork)
-yarn (I used a delicate pom pom yarn for added texture)
-sharp scissors
-lace ribbon in length and style of your choice
-wooden dowel 2" longer than your length of lace
-embroidery needle (not pictured)

Pom Pom Wall Hanging — Simple to make and so cute!Step One: Loop the plain yarn through the lace and around the wooden dowel. An embroidery or darning needle is helpful for this. Leave a long tail for the next step. If you run out of yarn, knot another length of yarn to your remaining strand and tuck the tail into the looped yarn using the embroidery needle.

Step Two: Knot the ends of the looped yarns to secure them in place around the wooden dowel. Then use the tail of the yarn to create a string for hanging. Knot it in place and tuck the ends of the knot into the yarn-wrapped dowel using the embroidery needle.

Step Five: When your pom poms are arranged how you wish, knot them into place and trim off the tails.

  • Great job, what a fun craft! So adorable and simple. We love the bohemian, yet modern feel! It would look amazing hanging on the wall, with one of our rugs on the floor. http://bit.ly/1EBkKnv

  • I adore this idea. Much simpler than I imagined. I am also wondering on the wall colour name. It is stunning.

  • WOW! This is gorgeous! You going to have me crafting rather than working. 😉 Love your blog.

  • I love this! Perfect weekend project to help dress up my tiny apartment walls.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Much love!

    Merci

  • This is so ridiculously stunning, I can not even take it!!!! Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.

  • I LOVE love LOVE this! Totally making one for my room…

    But I really don’t like the “Lazarus Effect” ads that are on your blog now… 🙁
    (I’m fourteen and that creeps me out.)

  • What a fun little project! I could definitely see this in a little girl’s room 🙂

  • Seriously, you make this look so doable but I will probably be staring into space for an hour before I figure out what to do!

    Maybe I’ll try to give it a go this weekend!

    Thanks for sharing girls!

  • This is so cute, I totally might do this when I get round to furnishing the nursery! thanks for the great project.

  • This is neat! I think it might make really good wedding decor!

  • Oh, I love this!! Definitely a little more doable than the weavings I’ve been seeing! I think this would look great against the dark teal wall I have in my room!!

  • I don’t have kids of my own yet, but I know that my students would love to see something like this in the classroom! Thanks for the idea!

  • oooh love this, it’s gorgeous especially keeping it all white! xx

  • I’m obsessed with this! One question – did you tie the pom poms to several strands of yarn or to individual? Sorry if this is a duplicate, my other comment seems to have disappeared.

  • I love this! I was looking for a craft to do on my birthday today, so this couldn’t have come at a better time! Thanks for sharing : )

  • Oh, I am ALL over this. I love that there’s no colors so the texture of it really emphasized. I imagine this would be great for a nursery as well.

    I’m new blogger. I’d be happy if you would check out my blog!

  • For sure! Just be aware that it tangles easily when moved about, so the large the piece the more work you might have to do when moving it into place, getting out any tangles. -Mandi

  • It’s in my brother’s home, so I can’t say. But I asked him and he said he might be able to figure it out. I’ll let you know if he responds! -Mandi

  • This is so gorgeous and would love amazing on my light lilac wall. Would love to do this with friends!

    Warm Regards,

  • I have to say that of all of the wallhanging DIYs I’ve seen, this one is my favorite! I love how it can be used to fill a substantial space but still has a very delicate feeling to it.

    My walls are white so now I’m trying to imagine what colour what look best or how this would look maybe even multicoloured. Would that ruin the beautiful and delicate simplicity of this? I’m not too sure. I’ll let you know when I get around to trying this though!

  • This is so cute! I also think it would look good if you angled the bottom in the same way that the larger pompoms are. Such an easy DIY and it looks so great! Thanks for sharing.

  • Oh, if there’s ever been a project that I’ve wanted to rush and replicate right away it’s this one! I absolutely love how light and airy this is – beautiful!

  • That looks adorable! I’m about to move (again) and am looking for sweet things to decorate- thanks for sharing!!!

  • This is so simple, but so perfect. Can this type of wall art be done on a much larger scale?

  • The wall color (dusky blue) is gorgeous and to die for. Please, I must know. What color is it?

  • This is so pretty! I love the way you always find ways to ways to cover bare walls that are not too heavy or loud, but still offer a really nice contrast in texture. Really beautiful – thanks for sharing!
