How to make a yarn wall hanging step by step tutorial:

Step 2:  attach to brass hop

Attach the pieces of yarn onto the small brass hoop by doing a larks knot. To create this type of knot grab the piece of yarn and fold it so opposite ends meet each other. Place the yarn under the hoop, folded part facing the bottom and the ends of the yarn facing up. Bring the ends over the brass part and pass it under the folded area and pull firm until you create a knot. Continue to do with the rest of the strands of yarn.

Moving onto the bigger hoop, take all your yarn and cut about 25-30 strands which should measure 35 inches each. Once you finish cutting all the yarn attach each piece of string to the hoop by creating a larks knot. This part you can decide on the placement of the colors; you can follow a pattern or randomly place them as you go.
