How to make a hoop and yarn wall hanging

Before we even get started on creating this cool hoop and yarn hanging, make sure you have everything ready. Much like it happens when you cook, it’s a great time-saver to have all your ‘ingredients’ on hand. Let’s get started now!

Hoop and yarn wall hanging materials

Step 1: Tie the base line

We’re going to start our project by tying a base line around the metal hoopGet your hemp twine and tie it on a spot on the circle. You want to get the glue gun and add a dab of hot glue to the spot, to make sure the twine isn’t going to move.

Cut the thread, allowing it a bit of extra length than the circle needs.

Wrap it around the metal hoop again, somewhere across the spot where you already glued it down.

Once more, add hot glue to the spot to make sure the thread isn’t going anywhere.

Wrap the thread around the metal hoop a couple of times.

This is how your metal hoop should look by the end of our first step. As you can see, the thread is tied just a bit above the middle of the circle.

Step 2: Prepare the cream yarn 

Next, we need to get the cream-colored yarn and start cutting out loops. Double the thread and then cut it with your scissors. Try to give all threads the same length before cutting them.

Create a big pile of threads as you’ll need quite a few of them.

Step 3: Add the cream yarn to the hoop

Next, we need to start adding the cream yarn to the hoop. Pick up one of the double threads you have and place it on top of the base line you tied earlier on the metal hoop.

Bring the ends of the thread through the loop, over the base thread. It’s a pretty easy type of knot, usually called cow’s hitch.

Push the first thread to the edge of the base tread, near the metal hoop.

Keep adding the threads you cut earlier, duplicating the move – push the ends of the thread through the loop.

Add more yarn pieces until you’ve covered the entire base line with them.

There you go! If you’ve cut too many of them, that’s no problem since you’ll need extras later on. If you’re short, add some more. Also, please make sure you do the knots on the same side, so they look neat as in the picture.

Step 4: Cut the yarn

Now that all the yarn pieces are neatly arranged on the base thread, you can go ahead and get your scissors. After you arrange the threads once more, you can start trimming the yarn.

We chose to do this at an angle. Figure out which area is the middle here, and go upwards both left and right. Don’t make the cut too abrupt.

Step 5: Create some tassels

Now’s the time to start creating some tassels. Get the lighter blue embroidery thread and start looping it around a couple of your fingers. Alternatively, you can also use a piece of cardboard.

You can make these as thick as you want, to maybe count how many loops you’re making so you know to do the others the same.

Bring one of the cream yarns you cut earlier and pass the end through the loop of embroidery thread. Make sure the loop is in the center of the yarn piece and tie a knot.

Get the scissors and cut the embroidery thread.

Get the gold thread and start wrapping it around the top of the tassel. You want the thread to be a little bit below the spot where you tied the cream yarn.

Make multiple passes around the tassel and tie a couple of knots with the gold thread. 

Hoop and yarn wall hanging steps (31)

Use your scissors to cut through the middle of the thread loop, making sure to properly stretch it, making sure the cut is as straight as possible.

Then, use the same scissors to trim the tassel threads a bit.

Make eight other tassels. You want to create three of each blue shade you have for the embroidery thread.

Step 6: Add the tassels

Now that your tassels are done, it’s time you added it to your wall hanging. Pick the light blue tassels and find a place for them in between the threads you hanged earlier.  We chose to make these tassels shorter, only allowing them about an inch of length here. Also, the middle tassel got just a tiny bit more length.

You need to secure the tassel by simply tying a knot here. Make sure it’s a double one, so it doesn’t get loose later on.

Get the scissors and cut the excess thread before arranging the hanging yarns once more.

Look! We have the three lighter blue tassels up!

Next, let’s start adding the mid-tone blue tassels. Pick a spot on the base line and start tying them like you did the first three. Only, this time, give them a bit more length. You want the middle row of tassels to be a bit below the first one.

As you can see, the second row of tassels falls just below the first one.

Let’s add in the last group of tassels too. Find the right spots for them and tie them up on the base line.

Cut the excess thread once you’ve completed your knot. Also, make sure the third row of tassels also falls just below the second one.

You can give them different lengths if you desire, but we think they look perfect like this!

There you go! Your hoop and yarn wall hanging piece is done! It’s adorable and you can put it up anywhere you want in your home. It’s going to look great no matter what and we feel like you’ll enjoy it every time you see it. 

Since this is a pretty customizable design, you can choose a different color for the yarn, as well as for the embroidery thread we used for the tassels. You can go as big as you want and you can definitely give this decor piece more length if you feel like it would work better like that. Ultimately, it depends on the spot you want to put it up in and how much empty space there is to cover.
