DIY wall decor to bring out the bohemian in you

Decorating your house isn’t an easy task. You need to take care of a lot of things. The furniture is the main focus in a room. If you have attractive furniture then most of your work is already done. But you will notice that even after you arrange everything, your walls seem quite empty. Having proper wall decor is another key to decorating your house. There are many ways you can fill up the walls. Most common of all are photo frames. People love putting up pictures of them with their family and friends. But there are many other ways you can decorate your walls too.

Wall hangings and posters are some of the things that you can go with. But if you don’t want to go with the clichéd items and want to do something different, then you should go with bohemian style wall decor. They are easy and fun and add a very mystic look to your whole place. You can easily find these types of decor from local stores for very reasonable prices. But you can also choose to make them yourself. Here is a list of things that you can make to hang up on your walls to give your room a very gypsy touch.

Yarn hanging

This is a very easy and inexpensive wall hanging which you can make in no time. You just need to have a large woollen yarn, a small twig and some string. Just cut strips of the yarn and bunch them together. Make a few of these groups and then tie each of the groups to the twig one beside the other. Tie the string to the ends of the twig and hang up your yarn wall hanging.

Wall hanging

This is another wall hanging which just takes about 2 to 5 minutes to make. You will need a small rug and a wooden dowel. Attach the dowel to one side of the rug and tie the end with a string. Add some brass accessories on top of the rug and there you have it. A new and unique wall hanging is ready.

Moon phase wall mobile

This wall mobile is quite unique as it portrays the different phases of the moon. All you have to do is make the structures of the different phases of the moon on air dry clay- one full moon, two gibbous moons, two half moons and two crescent moons. Attach these to strings and tie the string to a wooden down keeping the full moon in the middle and the others in symmetry as if the moon was shrinking in size on both sides. Try forming a V-shape with the moons and you have a beautiful wall mobile ready.

Macramé wall hanging

These wall hangings are so easy to make that you can make them while you are binge watching your favourite TV-series. All you need is a lot of string. You can even dip dye them to create a very ombre look. Just tie up these strings one beside the other on a wooden dowel and cut the end in different shapes.
