How I Made It: Moroccan Wedding Blanket Inspired Wall Hanging

Hey Guys!

One of my favorite things to create are wall hangings. With so many variations of wall hangings to choose from, I find myself making more and more because I just have to have them all. This time around I wanted to try making a wall hanging on a circle form and I wanted to achieve a look similar to moroccan wedding blankets. With a few different, yet inexpensive, materials, I'm happy to report that it's both beautiful and very easy to put together.

Want to learn how to make one? You're in the right place :)

Supplies:


Fluffy White Yarn
White Yarn with Silver thread
Textural Yarn
Sequin Ribbon

A lot of macrame wall hangings use straight objects to hang the strings/yarn/rope from. You've probably seen circular bases beginning to pop up as well as used in vintage pieces. Through a series of events totally unrelated to purchasing a ring for this wall hanging, I'm using the 16"bottom lamp ring from LampShop.com. Nope, not sponsored. But I can vouch that the customer service is on point and the pricing is incredible.

I spray painted the ring with a little gold spray paint and let it dry for a few days. Using the Lark's head knot, I attached the strings to the ring. I didn't measure the yarn out, but rather hung the wall hanging at the height I would be hanging it in my bedroom.

The process isn't complicated, just tie the yarn onto the ring (or rod if you prefer) using the larks head knot (check out the break down of this and 4 other essential knots here). So I put together a short video that hopefully explains it well enough.



The texture and likeness of the wall hanging is so true to the textures you'd see in true moroccan wedding blankets. Not sure? Check out this post (on my old blog) where I share all things Moroccan wedding blanket obsessed ;)
