Where to Hang your Wall Art?

Here are some of my ideas to help you choose where to hang your crochet wall art:

Living room

A large crochet wall hanging can be a beautiful focal point in your living room. Choose a design that complements the style of your furniture and décor

Kitchen

A colorful crochet wall hanging can add a touch of cheer to your kitchen. Choose a design that features your favourite fruits, vegetables, or flowers

Bedroom

A crochet wall hanging can add a touch of romance to your bedroom. Choose a design that features hearts, flowers, or other symbols of love

Children’s room

A crocheted animal or other whimsical design can make a great addition to your child’s room. Choose a design that is both fun and educational

Entryway

A crocheted wall hanging can add a touch of welcome to your entryway. Choose a design that reflects your personal style

Outdoor Space

Crochet wall hangings can make a beautiful addition to any outdoor space, adding a touch of warmth and charm.

Perfect for hanging on a patio or garden wall, where they are sure to bring a cozy, inviting feel to any outdoor setting. And because they are so lightweight and easy to hang, you can easily switch them out and rotate different designs to keep your space feeling fresh and new.

Materials

The materials you will need for a crochet wall hanging can vary depending on the pattern and the size of the project, but here are some general supplies you will need:

  1. Yarn:  For wall hangings, the most popular is a Worsted/Aran weight yarn, as it will create a thicker and more substantial finished product.  For mandala designs or appliques, cotton thread is often used.
  2. Crochet Hook: You will need a crochet hook in a size appropriate for your yarn. This information can be found in the pattern.
  3. Scissors: A pair of scissors will be necessary for cutting the yarn.
  4. Tapestry Needle: You will need a tapestry needle to weave in the ends of your project.
  5. Dowel Rod or Branch: Depending on the design of your wall hanging, you may need a dowel rod or a branch to hang your project from. This will be used to create the top of the wall hanging, which will be attached to a hook or nail on the wall.
  6. Hoop, Wooden/Metal Rings or Wire.  This will be used by mandala patterns to attach your design.  Wire can be used to strengthen the finished project.
  7. Optional Embellishments: You may want to add embellishments to your wall hanging, such as beads, feathers, or tassels. These can be added during or after the crocheting process.
