While you’re decorating with some of our fantastic fall home finds, spruce up your pad for autumn with a DIY decorative wall hanging, which has a short supply list and is a breeze to create!
What You Need:
- A birch branch measuring 10 to 15 inches
- A half yard of your choice of fabric
- Hot glue gun
Cut your branch down to your desired size. Ours measures in right at about a foot long, and we purchased it at a local craft store. If you wanted to change things up, you could try a piece of drift wood or even a stick sourced from your backyard. Just make sure it’s pretty sturdy. Next, tie the twine/rope around one end, and double knot it.
Apply hot glue to next to the tied twine, and then start wrapping more of the twine around the branch. This provides extra support. When you’re finished with that side, do the same thing (with the same piece of twine) on the other side. This will allow you to hang the branch. About two feet of twine is plenty for this, especially since you’ll be wrapping it around the birch on both sides.
Cut your fabric down as necessary so it fits between the two sections of wrapped twine. You’ll want the fabric to hang down on both sides about 15 inches (so 30 to 32 inches in total length). We picked this fabric up at a local flea market and squirreled it away for the perfect project, which happened to be this one! To keep the fabric in place, apply a few dots of hot glue on the side of the branch that will rest against the wall.
Cut vertical strips into the fabric on one side only. In addition to cutting the fabric into strips, we also reshaped the fabric so that it had a tapered end.
Hang and admire!
