DIY Anthropologie Wall Hanging – KayleyMelissa

(upbeat music) – Hey guys, Kayley here. I’m back with another DIY
because you guys have been asking for them so I
decided today, I’m gonna go the home decor route. Montage. (upbeat music) I took inspiration from
Anthropologie because I found these wall
hangings there that were $100 and $200 dollars each. I mean, what? So I decided to remake
those for under $20 each. And, bonus, it took me less
than an episode of Friends for each of these to create these
less than $200 masterpieces. I hope you guys enjoy, let’s get into it. I’m gonna start with the basic. For your base you will
need a 12 inch ring, which you can find on Amazon. Yarn in the color and
texture of your choice, and scissors. For step one, start by folding
a piece of yarn next to your ring and decide how long
you want your strands to be. Cut that piece and use it
as a guide to cut about 25 pieces in total. I don’t really worry
about being super precise with the lengths, because
I like the ends to have kind of a natural tapered look to them. Now you’re gonna fold your
yarn in half and you’re ready to tie it to the ring. You’re gonna create a knot by
wrapping the fold of the yarn over the ring, and tucking
the ends through the loop. Continue adding the loops
until all of your yarn is on the ring. I think it helps to prop
up one side of the ring so you don’t have to keep picking it up every time you tie a new piece, so I used a little bit of
the yarn to hold it up. Once you’ve tied all the
yarn, take a look at the ends and make sure everything looks good. Sometimes there are a
couple of stray long hairs that I have to cut so
that everything works. And that’s it. You can always play with
different lengths or colors, even add a braid in. It’s all up to you and your imagination. And I think even the
least crafty among you can pull this one off. Now onto the arcs. For this you’re going
to start with the steps from our first wall hanging. I kept the yarn on this one
a little on the short side and I used about 30 pieces of yarn. Then you’ll need an 8
inch ring, and optionally some ribbon or leather
cord and wooden beads. We’re gonna start by
adding the second ring. You’re gonna grab about
14 inches more of yarn or you can choose to add in a new texture and I’m using some leather cord. Start by tying a half
knot, leaving a tiny tail and align the tail with the rings. Then wrap all of that together. At the end of the wrap,
tie another half knot on the back of the rings
as tight as you can. And cut off the tail. If you want, you can add a
little glue for extra security. Now this is super
optional but if you want, grab some string and tie
it to the top of the ring just like we did with the yarn. Then shimmy it a little,
so it hides in the cracks of the wrap we just did. Then add a few beads onto
it, and knot the string a few inches up from that. Cut off the extra ends, and you’re done. I really like how stylish
and expensive this looks. It looks like ones that I’ve seen for $100 but this one cost me
less than $15 to make. And now we’re onto our
fringed wall hanging. For this one, you will
need a 14 inch ring, a 2 1/2 inch dowel which you can pick up at any craft store. Two colors of yarn, scissors, and glue. First you’re gonna place the dowel where you would like your
first layer of fringe to sit. Then cut it to size. I’m not fancy so I just
used my kitchen scissors. Optionally you can paint or
stain the dowels in any color you like, but I decided
to leave them natural. Now you’re gonna cut your yarn. For the top I’m using this
cream color and for the bottom I’m using a darker, cozy gray. For the top I measured each
piece about 24 inches long and I used 22 pieces. And for the bottom I
made them slightly longer at 28 inches long and I did 30 pieces. Now all that’s left is to knot the yarn. Knot the shorter yarn
onto your top dowel using the same loop and pull method
that I showed you earlier. Then repeat the same
thing with the longer yarn on the second dowel. And to finish everything
off, grab a bit of glue and glue down the bottom dowel first. Hot glue is always the easiest way to go, but you could also use E6000
for some really strong hold. And then glue down your second
dowel a little farther up, and you’re done. I love the split level on this one. You can mix up any color
combo to fit your style. It looks amazing and it comes
together pretty quickly. There you go. Three inexpensive ways to
make some beautiful wall art. I feel like if you like braiding hair, tying knots isn’t far behind that. So I hope you guys try it out,
send me pictures if you do. And let me know in the
comments what other DIYs you’d like to see next. And that’s it for today’s tutorial, check back on Saturday

  5. I think the one you made with the beads was my favorite. Not a fan of the other styles, but great DIY!

  9. Your DIYs are so easy and simple but turn out so awesome! I love how you can relate to everyone by not making it complicated

  10. I went onto Anthropologie to see the inspiration for these and I gotta say you did a great job. They are so overpriced otherwise.

  11. Hi Kayley! I was just wondering if you could do a video on hairstyles for bangs and or layers?? Thanks! Love your channel!

  12. Anthropologie is a store I can't afford to purchase anything from so this video is super helpful ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Š

  13. I would love to see more DIY face and hair masks!! And what would be the most helpful are hair styles that you can wear in the water swimming or when it rains and still look great when when you get out of the water๐Ÿ˜Š

  14. Oh no, these are a rip off (the Anthropologie ones, too) of Iron Wood + Wool ๐Ÿ™ she works very hard on her art and business(es) and has a family she supports with these. Please support her if you have the funds. โ˜น๏ธ

  16. this was such a great but simple diy! great video Kayley! i like the one with the two rings and the wooden beads (:

  17. I have a daughter and she's not even 2 years old and the amount of bows and headbands she is collecting is getting out of control. I'd love to see your ideas on DIY hair bow/clip/headband storage โค๏ธโค๏ธ
