Step Four: Attach the Yarn to the Dowel

To attach each piece of yarn, first grab your yarn with double the length you would want the final piece to be, then find the middle and fold the strands in half. Now pull the loop over the dowel and pull the ends through the loop. Once you fill the entire dowel with yarn, you can add different techniques to the yarn to make it unique (we’ll show you in the next steps).

Step Five: Make Some Single Texture Braids

Add more texture to your statement wall piece, starting with single braids. Divide the yarn into three equal sections. Let the braiding begin until you have about one inch left and then secure it with extra yarn.

Step Eight: Add Tassels

Another technique you can try is adding tassels. You can make them by cutting a piece of cardboard and then wrapping yarn around it until you reach the fullness you want. Tie a piece of yarn around the centre of it and then pull, cutting the looped ends to form a tassel shape. To finish, tie your new tassels to the end of any loop.

Step Nine: Hang the Statement Wall Piece

Attach your wall piece to the wall using three to four nails. You can trim the ends, but having uneven ends makes this statement wall piece look so cool.

Enjoy your new modern wall decor DIY project. Cheers!
