DIY holiday wall hanging

DIY holiday wall hanging // sarah sherman samuel I threw my first party in the new studio for which I whipped up this evergreen wall hanging and it is easily my new favorite piece of holiday decor. This crazy simple DIY has loads of visual impact but doesn’t take up any floor space, making it perfect for small spaces.

Supplies needed:
a 48″ long .5″ dowel rod
yarn
evergreen boughs (picked up from a local florist or your backyard if you’re lucky)
staple gun

holiday-wall-hanging-DIY-step1Step 1: I started by tying one piece of yarn (about 4′ long) at each end of the dowel and then stapled the tied yarn in place (on the back) to secure. Then I hung it on a nail on the wall.
