1. A handmade bohemian wall weave

If only one object were kept to bring the bohemian spirit into its interior, it would probably be played between dream catcher and contemporary weaving. It is on the latter that Caroline, blog Woodhappen has set his sights. It must be said that in addition to being ultra trendy, weaving boosts your creativity and has relaxing virtues. Indulge !

Material to realize this DIY:

  • A loom (you can also make one)
  • Thick cotton thread (for the weft)
  • Wool of different colors, thicknesses, textures
  • A comb
  • A wool needle

How to achieve this step by step:

Install the warp thread. Start weaving by forming fringes. Take a long piece of wool and, using the woolen needle, weave the wool one time above, once below the weft threads. Use the comb to tamp the wool regularly. Change wool according to your desires. You can even insert a thinner golden thread. Once the weave has reached the desired size, tuck all the threads back. Unhook the weaving of the loom. Cut the weft yarns up and down and knot them to hold the weave in place. Hang it weaving using wire and a piece of wood.
