I love crafting a little more than the average person so I have developed a special set of skills.  This results in me occasionally taking on projects that are a little big and complicated.  This DIY is NOT one of them.  This DIY was way easier than I thought.  So, here you go.

If you’re a renter…and who in LA isn’t?  Then you are quite familiar with this absolute eyesore.  The dreaded in unit fuse box…dum, dum, dum.  Well, I knew it had to be covered but its slight protrusion makes hanging a picture there awkward and it’s directly behind a door, making a picture risky.  The only answer was channeling my inner 1970’s moonchild and making some yarn art.

I collected all of my tools.  Basically, yarn, a stick from outside, and scissors.

Cut your yarn long enough to double and have it hang long enough to fit your very unique needs.  Then double the yarn and create a loop. Place the loop over the top of your stick or dowl.

Fold the loop around the stick and pull the free hanging part of the yarn through the hole in the loop.

Now just keep going until you’ve added as much as you want.

Add one piece of yarn so you can hang it up and voila.  See where that door is.  Hmmm such a problem.  Who designed this wall?

Next, cut your yarn however you want.  I did a gentle chevron.

The final product.  Hope you enjoy your beautiful art.
