DIY Wrapped Rope Wall Hanging
8 yards Cotton Piping (get by the yard from fabric store or Amazon)
Dowel Rod (I used 4 foot rod from hardware store)
Quick dry tacky glue
- I first hung the dowel rod on the wall using command hooks so I could play around with how long I wanted to hang the rope. You will want to figure out your length based on what the wall hanging will hang above.
- Hang the cotton rope multiple times and make sure and leave about 10 inches on each side so you can make a tassel at each end.
- Next, start wrapping yarn in a color block technique. First, glue the end of the yarn on the back of the cotton rope. Use quick dry glue so it will adhere quickly. Wrap the yarn around the rope and secure using the same technique once you have finished the length you desire.
- Continue wrapping yarn in sporadic design until you are happy with the look.
- To make the end tassels, trim the piping thread to release the cotton. Very gently pull the cotton to make a tassel look. Then wrap some yarn to secure.
- Hang on the wall using hooks.
I love that this DIY Wrapped Rope Wall Hanging can be a work in progress! I already might want to add a bit more color to it. You could also add more tassels or even some wood beads. You name it! I love how this turned out. It is the perfect project for a large scale wall. And I spent under $40 for the entire project.
