Looking for a super cute, low cost wall decor idea?  Well look no further!  Today I will share with you how I made this easy swag (no weave) wall hanging with tassels, for less than $4---and the best part?  You can make it as big or small as you'd like! (I wish I had thought of this idea myself, but my inspiration for this project came from here.)

1. Cut 10 (or more) pieces of yarn in groups of different lengths, starting short and increasing it by 1-2" per group of yarn.  The groups of yarn that I used started at 6.5 inches and increased to 42' for the last grouping.  (To cut the yarn, evenly and in bulk, see below under TASSELS)


2. Gather your first group of yarn pieces and line up the edges.

3. Squeeze a thin line of hot glue slightly off center onto your stick.

6. Swoop the opposite end of your yarn grouping over and attach to the stick with glue, creating a swag, like 90's curtains, remember those?  Continue doing this, ensuring that each grouping of yarn hangs lower /longer that the previous one.

7.  Flip the wall hanging over and trim excess yarn, gluing down any stray pieces if necessary.

8.  And you're done, you can hammer two nails and rest the stick on them to hang or you can tie string to each side and hang from an additional piece of yarn.

  1. Grab a piece of cardboard. Wrap your yarn around 30-40 times to get a nice, decent sized tassel. (this method can also be used to cut the yarn neatly, in general. for step 1 of this tutorial, just use different sized pieces of cardboard to achieve the different lengths of yarn)
  2. Thread a piece of yarn under the wrapped yarn and pull to the top.  Cut the yarn at the edge of the cardboard 
  3. Tie a knot. 
  4. Wrap a piece of yarn around the top of the tassel and tie. And you're done!
