  1. Gather your materials.

You should have to get normally a 1/2 inch or 1/4 inch dowel rod. The length of the bar depends on how much yarn you wish to use for just one hanging, and then how many colors you would like to add to the design. You will need lots of casts of yarn in a variety of colors. Pick up some glue and some good quality scissors as well.

  1. Prepare your yarn.

You have to have yarn in multiple lengths. Carry your first color of yarn, and begin to put it around your elbow, and in between your pointer finger and thumb. Wrap it around, creating loops.

This will get strings about 24 inches long (12 inches will be, hanging down from the dowel rod). When you are done the wrapping, carefully carry the yarn off of your elbow and finger crux, laying it to the sides. This can be your shortest length of yarn.

  • You need to create approximately 2 more sections, each of a unique color. The 2nd section should be around 36 inches long (18 inches will appear) and 48 inches really elongated (24 inches will appear).
  • You can find attention-grabbing methods to wrap your own yarn, like from your arm to your foot, or between two doorknobs. You can also simply cut 36 or 48-inch pieces against a really long ruler.
  • Set each of your wrapped yarn loops to the side, making sure to store them in their loop form.

  1. Set up your yarn in terms of color.

Take your smallest yarn strands (24 inches) and then cut them at one side of the loop with scissors. Begin to drape them over the dowel rod, making sure that the strings are equidistant on both sides of the rod (12 inches on all sides). Scrunch all of them together on one end of the rod.

    • Take your own next longest yarn strands (36 inches) and do the same. Cut them at just one side, and drape them over the rod, equidistant on both sides. Scrunch it together, and then slide them next to the 24-inch strands.
    • Do the exact same thing with the 48-inch strands. Scrunch it together again then slide them together against the 36-inch strands. If you have decided to attach some more lengths, add them now.
  1. Glue all your strands on.

Once you have arranged the strands properly, take out your glue. Work in colored areas, starting with the smallest strands. Lift the 24-inch section up possibly and add a strip of gum to the dowel rod. Force the strands down, trying your best to keep the strings equidistant on each side. Hold them down until the gum is fairly dried.

  • Perform the similar thing for the 36 and 48-inch strands. Do not forget to apply gum to the dowel rod, keep them gathered up, then forced to the previous lengths.
  • Leave your entire rod anywhere safe to dry. You must avoid beginning cutting the yarn until the glue is 100 % dried.
  1. Glue your strands on.

Once you have setup the strands completely, take out your glue. Work in highlighted portions, starting with the shortest strands. Lift the 24-inch area up slightly and then add a strip of glue to the dowel rod. Press the strands down, working your best to keep the strings equidistant on each side. Grab them down until the gum is fairly dried.

  • Do the similar thing for the 36 and 48-inch strands. Just be sure to use glue to the rod, you can keep them bunched up, and pressed against the previous lengths.
  • Leave all rod anywhere safe to dry. You do not need to begin cutting the yarn until the glue is fully dried up.
  1. Trim and be creative.

First, you will need to hang up your creation where you want it to hang permanently. It may mean hanging it on a few fingernails or tacks on your walls, evenly placed on each side. Or, you can buy eye hooks, and screw one onto each side of the dowel rod. Slide a piece of yarn by both eye hooks and secure knots on all ends. Finally, control the string on a hook or tack.

  • Get out a set of heavy-duty scissors. Begin cutting the bottom of your strands of yarn at angles. There are 3 options you may choose: Limit every strand at 1 continuous angle, cut all the separate colors at different angles, or just cut which-ever step you wish to.
  • The trick is for you to be very creative. It doesn’t definitely be perfect, or cleanly cut. Simply because this project is relatively quick, you can always just create another in a little period of time if you make a mistake. However, with this project, mistakes actually are creative scissor cuts.

Wool (built from the fleece of sheep) is the queen of yarns, and it remains to be a very common choice for knitters.
