DIY URBAN OUTFITTERS-INSPIRED WALL HANGING

Sunday, 30 August 2015

Hello loves! I'm pretty darn excited about this DIY; I've been seeing ones like this on urban outfitters and pinterest a lot lately but could never justify the prices... sooo I made my own! I'm really happy with how it turned out, it cost next to nothing and was able to be whipped up in an afternoon. Enjoy! x

1// Gather your supplies. For this DIY you will need three sticks of roughly the same length, string, paint and paintbrushes,fabric, scissors and a glue gun.

2// Begin by painting a pattern of your choice onto a stick. I stuck with a simple pattern of lines, dots and triangles.

3// If you want a more opaque finish, wait for the first coat to dry and then go in with a second coat.

4// Repeat this on all three sticks.
 5// Cut a long piece of string and tie to each end of one of the sticks- this will hold the hanging on the wall. Then cut pieces of string of the same length (mine were about 30cm, this ended up making the sticks 11cm apart once I'd tied it on) and tie the three sticks together.

6// Cut a piece of fabric the same length of the sticks and however long you want the fringe to be.

7// Cut the fabric into a fringe with fabric scissors.

8// Use a glue gun to attach the fringe to the bottom stick... and voila! You're done!

    1. ahh yes I know exactly what you mean! For the past few years I've had my walls covered in posters but I recently took a heap of them down so this DIY stemmed from that! I'm going to be doing a few more decor DIY posts, so keep an eye out x
