DIY Yarn Garland

My office has become quite the explosion of pink/coral and grey. And I love it. 

I needed little something to go above my desk in the office so my sister and I created our very own yarn garland. 

It was a quick and relatively painless task. And I already owned almost all of the yarn that we used!

I’m sure you can figure out how I did it by looking at it, but I’ll talk you through it in case that helps. 
DIY Yarn Garland
1. Cut strips of yarn to desired length. I chose longer and slimmer “bunches” but my sister went with shorter and fluffier ones. 

2. Lay a few pieces (3) of yarn down–this will be the main string that the bunches are attached to. Fold a bunch of yarn over the main string. Place a smaller string parallel to the main string and wrap it around the bunch until it’s secure.


 3. Tie in a knot.

4. Keep cats away from yarn at all times. Good luck with that one.


5. Watch cat’s exhaust themselves right into a nap.

6. Continue tying bunches until your string is complete!


 A simple craft that really spices up a room! This would be great to have on hand to use for a party, or to give as a house-warming gift. Or be like me and hang it in your office!

      I agree! I’d be embarrassed to have that on my wall. Lovely colours just looks incredibly cheap. I do love your blog though, hair tutorials are fab! Xxx

      Maybe use the yarn to cover some wooden or paper mâché block letters to hang over the desk and picture. Those always turn out very cute!

      I don’t get the appeal to this at all…very random and not at all like other DIYs I’ve seen you do…

      Agree- it just looks very random and takes away from the appeal of that magnificant wall hanging over the desk.My first reaction was why cover up the focal point? It’s a cool idea & I can appreciate the concept; just not hanging over that awesome black modern looking piece.

      You rock the hair tutorials Kate ; )

      I love reading your posts about things other than just hair. :). I also think this is a cute idea and I’m going to use it for my work cubicle! Thank you!

      Wow I am shocked at how rude people are! If you don’t like it, then don’t put it in your office. Duh. Now that’s settled, I think it looks very fun and I love the colors!!

      I actually think this would be cuter with more yarn bundles tied to it- it just looks a little sad right now. But I like the thought of it as a way to add some color!

    I’m so glad you put this up! I saw a picture of your sister’s last week and I was wanting to attempt for my daughter’s recently redecorated bedroom! Very cute! Thanks!

    Love! And super adore the backdrop for this fun craft! That black wire doo-hicky is very cool. I would love to try this out somewhere in my home…maybe above my makeup station!
