We’re bringing some popular decor from the past back with this month’s craft collection! Featuring tons of texture, this shag wall hanging has a vintage look we absolutely love. The fluffy layer at the top especially reminds us of brown shag carpets from the 70s. 

You can make this beautiful hoop art for yourself following our step-by-step tutorial below. Since there are multiple layers and materials to weave, we think this is a great intermediate craft project.

We’re bringing shaggy back

This shag wall hanging would look gorgeous in a living room, bedroom, or even a kid’s playroom or nursery. The overall design is fairly neutral, but you can always switch up the colors to complement your home decor. Also, if you’re not quite ready to recreate this design, you can browse the rest of our wall hangings to find a simpler version.

Skill level: Intermediate

Knots used: Larks head knot. For more guidance on this knot, check out our skills course on macrame knots for beginners.



How to Make a Shag Wall Hanging

  1. Gather the craft tools and materials you need from our list above.
  2. Cut 11 pieces of natural cord, each measuring 3 feet in length.
  3. Fold a 3-ft cord in half, then tie a larks head knot around the wooden hoop.
  4. Bring both ends across to the opposite side of the hoop. Tie each end around the hoop pulling the cord tight.
