DIY: Yarn Bomb Art Display

DIY: Yarn Bomb Art Display

I have to confess, I am one of those girls that goes is a stationery store and ohhs and ahhs over everything.  I love pretty note cards, notebooks and scrap booking sheets.  I have been looking for something to hang over my bed that I can use as a display for some of these lovely cards I've collected and I came up with this yarn bombed piece of driftwood.  Since I already have a gallery wall of framed art on the opposite wall, I wanted the piece above the bed to be an irregular and organic shape.  I also like that I can easily swap out the art I hang on the piece with the season or any other fancy I have!

I started this easy project by looking for a piece of white washed driftwood.  My mom found this one for me in the creek outside her cabin in Northern Arizona.   Next, I wrapped the middle section of the branch in yarn.  I chose a marbled yarn in neutral shades to make it look like I used more than one color of yarn.  I carefully wrapped the yarn in neat rows around the branch while I watched tv.  It was very easy, but did take some time to get the whole thing wrapped.  After hanging the branch, I glued yarn to a few of my favorite Rifle Paper Co. botanical note cards and then tied them to the wood.  This was such a simple and inexpensive project.  Now I have the perfect display for any small pieces of art that inspire me, or even some of my own photos that I want to print and hang!
