I’ve wanted one of the woven wall hangs that are popping up everywhere forever, but the honest truth is I can’t really swing purchasing wall art in that price range at the moment. I’m also 120% positive that I don’t have the attention span for learning how to weave one, so I decided to make my own version of a wooly (that’s a technical word right?) wall piece myself with this DIY pom pom wall hang.

Lucky for me I happen to be dating a guy that loves to help, and he reallllly loves to make pom poms (it’s true, he says it’s relaxing), so this turned out to be a not-so-time consuming project, but you can also purchase pre made poms on Etsy too! While you’re saving yourself all kinds of pom pom making time you can now be pondering what Jared is going to look like in thirty years with knitting gear in hand, cause clearly that’s where he’s headed (love you, babe!)…

Wood round

Yarn pom poms (you can buy them premade or make your own with a pom pom maker)

Hot glue and glue sticks

First, attach the picture hanger to the back of the wooden round. Depending on how thick the wood is, the nails might actually be a bit longer than the wood and so will stick out on the other side, but no worries! You’ll be gluing the pom poms to the from anyways, so it won’t be noticeable or hazardous once you’re finished.

Next, get a general layout of where your pom poms will be placed on the wood, because once you hot glue them down, they aren’t coming off!

Now that you have a good idea of placement, start hot gluing them into place one by one by and applying a generous amount of glue on the wood in a given area so that they aren’t hanging on by a single thread.

Finish adhering them until the wood round is fully covered, and you’re all set. Now just to style and hang!

I went with the “whatever goes” color palette, and yes, I’ve been wondering when Pantone is going to officially announce that as a color option, too. You can always go with more neutral colors or a different shape besides a round wooden piece!

Think you’ll be making one of these fluffy guys this weekend?! Be sure to tag #mysugarandcloth so we can see what you come up with!

    This is so brilliant! I’ve wanted a woven wall hanging for ages now as well but they’re just so expensive. I’d never even thought of this, it’s such a creative yet simple idea. Definitely going to make one in greys, whites, browns and black. Thank you for sharing this with us :) x

    I pay a visit each day a few web pages and websites to read
