We begin with yarn art projects that can be created off the wall, then positioned as you wish. Because sometimes it’s just a bit less scary to create those nail holes on something that can be easily removed from your home’s interior if things don’t go as planned! The key to yarn art: creating a shape with nails, then criss-crossing with the yarn to create an intricate form.
We now move to the world of yarn DIY projects that are created ON the wall. This is the kind I attempted, and I can tell you from experience that the scariest part is getting started. But that’s also what makes a project like this so exhilarating. If you pull it off, there’s definitely a level of pride matched only by the level of investment you have in the project! Check out the amazing yarn installation below from The Chronicles of Yarnia. In fact, a customer of Portland’s DIY yarn store Yarnia created this project with yarn he bought from the shop, then sent this photo to the store’s blog to showcase the results. Impressive!
