Step one: make your tassels

To make the tassels that will hang from the bottom of your wall hanging start by cutting a piece of yarn that is approximately long enough to wrap horizontally around your notebook 30 times. Then cut a shorter piece of yarn and hold it vertically against the spine of your notebook. Start wrapping the longer piece around the notepad, over the top of the piece you are holding on the spine.

Once you have wrapped all the yarn around the notebook, tie the piece you have kept against the spine in a knot around the longer piece of yarn. Then chop the yarn that is wrapped around the notebook down the side with the pages to free it.

Pull all of the bits of yarn over to one side, leaving just two pieces free to create a loop. Then use another bit of yarn to create the tassel head by tying it around the top.

Step two: prepare the dowel 

To create the part of the wall hanging that will actually hold it up, tie a long enough piece of yarn to either side of the wooden dowel. Hold it up against a wall to check you are happy with how it hangs.

Step three: cut your yarn into nine sections 

For this design, nine pieces of yarn hang from the dowel, each getting longer towards the middle. Obviously, you can mix it up how you like – do alternating lengths, keep them all the same, whatever – just cut your yarn into nine pieces. You will be adding beads to them which will shorten the pieces so bear this in mind. 

Step four: add the beads

For each of the nine pieces, thread on one large bead and thread the yarn around the bead to keep it in place, follow with a small one and do the same. Again, you can mix up the pattern you create with the beads.

Step five: attach the tassels 

To attach a tassel tie it to the end of the yarn using the top loop of the tassel. Double knot them in place and trim off any excess. Hey presto! Your very on homemade wall art.
