Cold weather calls for all things cozy. Create a boho wall hanging with a driftwood or twig frame and cotton yarn to add seasonal comfort and texture to your space. Here’s how to make it:
1. Create a frame for your project. Using twigs or driftwood you’ve collected, tie or nail them together to create a frame. Yarn, embroidery floss, floral wire, or long, thin strips of leather make good ties. If you choose to secure your frame with nails, proceed with caution because driftwood has already been distressed by the elements and may crack.
2. Warp the frame. Tie threads that run vertically to the top and bottom of the frame. The warps will support your weaving.
3. Weave a design. One of the simplest weaving stitches is tabby weaving. Use this technique to fill the frame with yarn.
4. Make a hanging loop. Braid a length of yarn and tie it at both ends. Embellish it with knots at intervals. Attach the hanging loop to the frame with slip knots.
