DIY Summer Wall Hangings

Everything old is new again. At least, that seems to be the case in the world of crafts. Wall hangings are popping up everywhere in all kinds of varieties. Some are clearly 70’s redux, but others take on the newest trends.

I love the idea of hanging something on the wall besides a traditional piece of two dimensional art. Plus, some of these DIY’s are perfect for my daughter this summer (I’m ready for a stick and feather hunt!) For those of us ready to dive in and make our own, we have lots of options: from traditional macramé, found wood and feathers, to photos from Instagram!

The colors make this so of-the-moment, but the techniques are right up there with the height of 70’s fiber art. I could make the more complicated left-hand mobile, and my daughter could make the right at the same time!

Need a use for all of those Instagram shots? This is a fun way to gather memories from a trip, use up some souvenir driftwood and branches, and decorate your space all in one fell swoop.

I’m a huge fan of the triangle trend right now, and these sherbet colors would be lovely hanging in your home for the summer months.

The rain drops are such a sweet touch – and if you made more, you could hang all of these from a piece of driftwood or a long dowel, for a more dramatic wall spread.

This year, you can make anything feel modern by simply adding the right color palette: hot pink, black, and white. It’s a simple project with lots of dramatic appeal – I saw a wider version hanging over a bed on Pinterest, wouldn’t that be fabulous?

If you’re looking for something more three dimensional, these wood cubes should help. Hanging them in a cluster gives them a super casual, but confident, look.

    I especially like the first one. It’s kind of like “I went on a walk & hung up everything I found.” :] // http://www.itscarmen.com

    What adorable ideas! The clay hanger with the bear is my favorite.

    I’ve been meaning to make something like the yarn wall hanging for our bedroom. I recently made a wall hanging using this bright table runner I found at Home Goods. It looks festive in our dining area!
