A couple of years ago I created a DIY stick wall hanging for FREE using items I had on hand.
Wanna make one for yourself? See the easy step-by-step tutorial below.
Gather your supplies.
- 3-4 sticks (the smoother the better)
- Acrylic paint and brushes
- String and scissors
- Spray paint (if you wish to spray paint a couple sticks beforehand like I did)
Start by spray painting your sticks ahead of time if you want a look similar to mine. Once dry start, painting your sticks.
I laid mine out how they would hang on the wall so I could best plan my paint designs. I tried to paint one color at a time on all four sticks, and then added other colors in. I chose to leave some parts of the stick natural and non-painted to keep them a little more simple.
Once your paint is dry it’s time to start stringing the sticks together. Lay them flat on the floor how they will hang on the wall.
Cut your string lengths two at a time. I try to keep them about 6 to 8 inches long to start. Tie your first string to the bottom stick, and triple knot.
Take the remaining strand and tie it to the stick above. Triple knot when you are happy with the length.
Once the two bottom sticks are tied together, take a new 6 to 8 inch string and loop it under the knotted string from the stick below, triple knotting it.
TIP: I like to hold the sticks up in the air to see how they look with each string secured to make sure they look even and I’m happy with the lengths
Repeat the same steps from the first set of sticks until all of your sticks are securely tied together.
Take a 10 to 12 inch string to create your top string for hanging, and knot the string to the top stick sticks on both sides.
What do you think? Easier than you expected, right?
