This DIY project couldn't be easier. It's a great solution if you love the look of woven wall hangings, but you're a bit intimidated by the idea of weaving or you don't want to invest in buying or making a lap loom.
All you have to do is cut yarn to your desired length and tie it to a metal hoop (available at Hobby Lobby). Once you have the amount of yarn you want, trim the ends to a point in the middle or any other shape you like. I used a length of leather cord for the loop at the top, but you can use additional yarn for that as well if you prefer.
You can dip dye it if you want to add a bit of color. To give it an ombre look, dip die the yarn using Rit dye by submerging it for about half an hour, pulling it partway out of the dye and letting the ends sit for another half hour. This works best if you use natural fibers. All I had on hand was acrylic, so I couldn't really get a proper ombré going.
Also, if you use natural fibers, you should rinse the dye out as the bottle directs, but I just let it dry instead to preserve the darkest color. Rinsing the dye out is important for any garment or item you might wear next to you skin, but for a wall hanging, letting the dye just dry on the yarn is fine.
After dying mine, I used my fingers to unravel the ends a bit for a softer, woolier look. If you do decide to dye yours, I recommend waiting until it's dyed and dried to unravel the ends, since the dying process will just matt them together again.
