This easy yarn craft creates cute DIY yarn wall décor for any room in your home. It’s an easy project that is perfect for beginners.
As a child, I remember doing macramé with my mom. Hours were spent crafting and creating memories. Macramé and yarn crafts have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. My mom taught me to knit soon after my first daughter was born. I remember her coming to visit and help out with my new baby while my husband was away for training. Since then, yarn crafts have been one of my favorite projects.

My craft projects usually involve knitting or Cricut projects but this time I decided to use my yarn a different way, I created this DIY Yarn Wall Decor. You can see all of my free knitting patterns here.

Materials for DIY Yarn Wall Decor
Tapestry needle or Crochet hook
Start by measuring and cutting your yarn. The length of your yarn is up to you. The longer the yarn, the longer your frayed ends will be. I measured my yarn and cut it at 28 inches. Cut 36 pieces of yarn in total. For mine, I cut 18 pieces of each color.
The next thing you’ll do is to start tying your yarn around the embroidery hoop. Start by tying on the yarn on just one side. If you try to do all the yarn at one time, you’ll end up with a mess of tangles.
Once your yarn is tied on the first side, you’ll stretch it across to the other side of the hoop and tie it on. Make sure to separate the yarn strands to make sure they aren’t tangled or overlapping.
You’ll repeat the same process for the other side of the hoop.
The last thing you’ll do is to fray the ends of your yarn. I found that using a tapestry needle and inserting it and sliding it down the yarn strand made the fraying process a little easier.
That’s it! I love that with this DIY yarn wall décor, you can use any colors or weight yarn. It’s so customizable you can make one for every room in your house without creating duplicates.
