Lets face it it is easy to get lost in a Pinterest rabbit hole looking at endless images of stunning wall hangings but some of them require a great deal of time and may of us are time poor, I am going to show you how you can make a wall hanging with yarn in a matter of minutes!

This project is a great stash buster

Last month I finished making a rope wrapped rainbow from Makebox, the wonderful craft subscription box brought to you by Hannah. If it is not on your radar yet I suggest you go and check it out. I had a little of the rope left over and as I went to pop it away, (I save EVERYTHING), I discovered some other bits of rope and macrame rope in the drawer. Suddenly inspiration struck!

  • rope, various thicknesses
  • wire
  • wire cutters
  • yarn, various
  • darning needle

Warning making these is highly addictive


Cut the ropes to various lengths. I selected some wire to strengthen and give the rope form and cut it to be slightly shorter than the looped part of the rope.


Tie a knot with the yarn and tuck the end in once you start wrapping. Begin to wrap the part which forms the loop first and work your way around. Once you get to the end use a darning needle to tuck the last end in and hide it.


Use the darning needle and your fingers to gently undo the rope and create the fringed look.

I think making really tiny ones like this you could make a pair of fantablous statement earrings that I reckon Sophie Robinson would love – she has the best earrings!

The world of art and craft has a bad rep when it comes to waste but it does not have to be this way we can be more sustainable in all that we do.

A piece like this would work really well to break up the hard lines of a gallery wall, all those squares and rectangles sometimes need something to soften them and add a little interest and texture.

    This is a lovely craft! I can imagine how pretty they would be as pendants or earrings! My hands are not that crafty but I am sure my sister would be interested to make these. I will send the link to this post.

    These look so pretty. I’ve never seen them in the shops or made one myself before. Love the fact you can mix up the colours.

    This is so cute. I’ve seen some of these before but I never really paid much attention. But seeing it now, it’s really very cute.

    I’ve never seen these before! How long does it take for you to make one? Do you give these out as gifts or keep them for yourself?

    Those hanging yarns are so beautiful and look so good around the door handle. They are so simple but really make a statement around the house.
