yarn wall hanging

Do you ever walk past Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie mesmerized by their apartment goods? Well, now you can have your own with this yarn hanging that looks exactly like the ones they sell for so much more.

What you need:

  • Any colored thick yarn
  • Scissors
  • A small wooden dowel

Start cutting 20 strands of yarn that are about 50 inches long. We’re gonna put eight groups of 20 strands on the dowel. Gather the first group of 20, fold it in half and loop it around the dowel, and pull down.

Once you’ve reached the end, you can give it a haircut to make sure it’s even. To hang it up, just cut one more strand so it can hang off a pin, hook, or nail.

metallic wall décor

We all wish we could have a disco ball in our room, but this is the next best thing! Other than the gold spray paint, you can get the rest of the materials at the dollar store. This DIY under $20 is super effortless, and it looks like you could have bought it from Crate and Barrel.

What you need:

  • Medium-sized foam ball
  • Metallic spray paint
  • BBQ skewers
  • X-Acto knife

First, carefully cut the foam ball in half. Also, carefully cut one-third of the BBQ skewers but make it’s not the sharp end because we need it to stab the foam. Poke the ball however you please with about 20 skewers. Don’t poke too many skewers into the ball because it will get too heavy to put on your wall. Finally, spray paint your masterpiece outside and leave it to dry overnight.
