DIY Wall Hanging Under £10 And In Less Than 10 Minutes!

I don’t know about you but I’m super into wall hangings & beautiful simplistic interior at the moment. Wall hangings add a certain something to a room, they can be as big or small as you want and are so versitile! I’m loving the boho scene at the moment, mainly because boho can be a bit mix and match but can still turn out just perfect!

I’m also ridiculously into DIY and crafts so anything I think I can make myself I always give a shot (you end up saving so much money this way, plus a project is always welcome). So get your DIY head on and enjoy this really fast, easy & cheap tutorial from yours truly!

What you’ll need

A lace/crocheted doily

Wooden embroidery ring

Ribbon

Lace ribbon

Colourful patterned fabric

Scissors

First things first, when purchasing your DIY materials make sure the doily you choose is a tad bigger than the embroidery ring!! (This is important otherwise it won’t work!)  

Method

Open your embroidery ring taking out the smaller inner ring (I bought a 7” one on eBay for £2.80), using the inner ring place your doily how you’d like it to be framed on top (Doily also bought on eBay at £2.50 second hand). Carefully place the outer ring on top of the doily, you’ll want to place a bit of pressure on it at this stage to ensure the doily will become secured (see photo below). On tightening the ring gently pull the edges of the doily through even tighter, this is to make sure the doily won’t look saggy across the ring!

You’ll notice around the edge of the ring there is excess doily, turn the ring over & using a pair of scissors cut the excess off.

Now you have a pretty base to work from!

Next using your colourful patterned fabric (I recycled an old pair of cute paisley pj bottoms, the fabric is so pretty I couldn’t just chuck them out! So I spent nothing on this part!) cut strips off at different lengths, this doesn’t have to be neat at all it actually adds to the overall look so don’t panic if it looks a little shoddy.

Cut your ribbon and lace ribbon just like you did to your fabric, in different lengths. Once again I bought these on eBay – 3 yards of lace ribbon for 99p & 2 metres of mint green ribbon for £1.10.

Now here comes the fun bit!

Layer up your strips of fabric/ribbon/lace by attaching them to the doily ring. Finding a small hole at the bottom end of the doily thread through your pieces of fabric, tie them towards the back of the ring and cut any excess pieces off.

Continue to do this until you have attached all of your pieces – You can go up higher around the edges of your ring, I just wanted mine to look really simple & not too full.

ALL DONE!

At this stage you can add beads, feathers or other little trinket pieces to really make this something special.

This is what I like to call a ‘cheat dream catcher’– Super cute, really easy to make & looks perfect in any bedroom. The great thing about these is that there is no age limit, meaning they are also really cute in kids rooms & the kids can help make their own! You can do all sorts of different colours and additionally they don’t target just one specific gender (I’d say thats pretty awesome!!)

My total costs in materials came to a measly £7.39! Now who wouldn’t want to try this!?

    I love this, such a great idea and looks so pretty and unique! I’ve been getting into a bit of DIY and craft interiors myself lately, it’s amazing what you can do with some fairy lights and a few artificial flowers! xx
