DIY Wall Hanging

DIY your gifts this holiday, or make one for yourself– a woven wall hanging is a great way to get your hygge on! Read on to see how to weave your own wintry decor.

DIY Wall Hanging

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Large weaving loom
  • White yarn to wrap loom
  • Yarn to stitch with
  • Weaving needle
  • Scissors
  • 2 wooden dowels

WHAT TO DO

  1. In the loom, wrap yarn around the top and bottom pegs to make the base that you’ll be weaving through.
  2. At the very bottom of the loom, bring 4-5 pieces of yarn into a knot to create your bottom fringe. This will secure the bottom so that when you’re done with your creation, you can simply slide it off.
  3. The easiest way to get going is to simply “under and over” the yarn, making your base for incorporating fun things like poms!DIY Wall Hanging
  4. To create poms, wrap yarn in circles around your hand about 10 times.
  5. Next, cut an 8-inch piece of yarn and tie it around the middle of the yarn bundle.
  6. Cut the two loops on the top and bottom of the now tied bundle.
  7. Fluff the strings out to make a pom!DIY Wall Hanging
  8. Use the under over method with thicker yarn and tug at it to make it puff out for a fun texture
  9. Once you’re all done, use a dowel or festive stick to weave through the top loops.
  10. Have fun! It’s all about being creative. Try an assortment of yarns and mix up the textures and use your favorite colors to make it your own.

How To Hygge With Erin

Hygge (“hoo-gah”): the magic that comes from creating your happy place and living the cozy life. We were inspired by this Nordic concept during our holiday photoshoot in Iceland, and we’re still all about that cozy life back in the US! Watch our video with Aerie Stylist, Erin’s tips for getting your hygge on this season.

Start with cozy layers (duh!)

We LOVE the warm Bouclé Oversized Sweaters and soft Sleep Leggings for cozy hygge feels. Throw on our Pom-Tastic Slippers for ultimate cozy!

Add the essentials.

Fuzzy rugs and plush blankets are must-haves for a hygge-ready home. Mix and match soft plush fabrics with fleeces and faux furs for holiday chill.

Set the scene. 

Surround yourself with twinkle lights, handmade art and your fave happy quotes. Sip on a cup of hot cocoa and start living your best hygge life!

Hygge and kisses!
