My First Woven Wall Hanging

| DIY projects | handmade

i am so very delighted to share with you my very first woven wall hanging! i have to admit, i was so scared to start this project. i looked at my empty loom for months, overwhelmed by the possibilities and not knowing how or where to begin. but as i always say, the hardest part is just getting started. once i actually did, i had so much fun! i think it's officially safe to say I'M HOOKED!

i wanted to create something whimsical, feminine and fluffy (as my husband calls it) for our newborn daughter, ollie doe. so of course, i had to add her name in tiny gold letters! i absolutely love the way it turned out and can't wait to start making more of them.

i definitely had a few favorite tutorials i referred to and a couple of resources and tools that i fell in love with as well. just in case you're interested in diving into the world of weaving, i'll share them with you as well!

favorite tutorials along the way:

tutorials and posts from loom & spindle
learn to weave - tips from etsy
diy woven wall hanging

favorite tools i used along the way:

loom from wood creek looms
gold letters from BBB supplies
handmade tapestry bobbins
golden needle
copper pipe from lowes
i got most of my yarn and roving from a semi-local yarn shop, silver threads and golden needles (not available online).

    • hey brigid! you are so sweet, thank you thank you! for this weaving, i used the largest loom that wood creek offers. i really didn’t keep track of how much i spent, but i probably bought $50-60 worth of yarn (though i have a ton left over!). have fun!! xo

  • Hi Bonnie, would you consider doing this beautiful woven wall-hanging again and selling it? I’m looking for an exact colour-range of woven for my daughter’s nursery. Thanks!!
