DIY: Make a Felted-Wool Bead Door Hanger

Sunday Observer - - OBSERVER HOME -

Learn how to up­cy­cle old wool and then pair them with pom­poms to make dec­o­ra­tions for door­knobs or cab­i­net knobs.

You’ll need:

wool rov­ing dish soap warm wa­ter small bowl large nee­dle yarn hoop scis­sors em­bel­lish­ments (tas­sels, pom­pom, other beads)


Mix a lit­tle dish soap with one cup of warm wa­ter. Sub­merge the rov­ing into the wa­ter and then squeeze out the ex­cess liq­uid. Roll into a ball shape. Ag­i­tate the wool by rolling it be­tween your palms as if you are mak­ing a ball of clay. Keep re­peat- ing the process of dip­ping into the warm wa­ter and rolling un­til a tight ball of yarn forms. When you have a round shape you will need to use a nee­dle to make a hole. Assem­ble the door hanger by string­ing the felted beads, pom­poms and tas­sels from yarn us­ing a large nee­dle. At­tach the string of beads to a ban­gle bracelet or macrame ring.

Hang from door­knobs, cab­i­net pulls and more.
