20 Nov OFF THE WALL: WHY WE’RE LOVING TEXTILE WALL HANGINGS
When Ladyland decided to jump on the 1970s bandwagon, I admit I struggled a little: I couldn’t think of anything I could possibly want to try, eat or make. That is until I saw Maryanne Moodie’s Instagram feed.
They seem to be everywhere right now: wall hangings are a thing and they could not be more 70s. But before you decide to hang your Ikea rug above the settee, I have rounded up a few tutorials that might encourage you (and me) to go the DIY route instead.
THE CLASSIC WEAVE TECHNIQUE, Á LA MARYANNE MOODIE
This is the best thing short of investing in a professional loom. I might keep my Amazon packaging next time!
It looks pretty simple, it probably isn’t, and there’s nothing dusty about it.
THE HULA HOOP WEAVE
I am not completely sold on this, but the technique seems pretty fun. And I do have a bin bag full of old T-shirts. Great material for a rag rug!
This technique gives pretty good results, with minimum effort. Just my type!
FOR THE TOTALLY INEPT: THE ETSY TECHNIQUE
When DIY just won’t do!
THE COLLECTOR TECHNIQUE
Finally, you could also commission a piece from one of those pretty awesome ladies (and gent!).
