Fringe Art Backdrop



At ONEHOPE, we've created quite a few backdrops for various events that we've been a part of, but when this image popped up in my feed on Pinterest, I simply couldn't get it off my mind.  Our Pink Party for Breast Cancer Awareness Month felt like the perfect time and we used it as a way to create interest on our wine tasting table.  Here is a simple way to recreate the look on your own under $25.


  • Dowels
  • Yarn in various colors
  • Scissors


  1. Cut your dowels to length.  If your dowels are longer than you'd like your finished length to be, cut them to size using a hand saw.  Or, simply ask your local hardware store to cut them for you which is what I did.  The sizes I went with were 24 inches and 16 inches.
  2. Decide what color yarn you will be using the most and cut it accordingly.  I knew we were going to be using mostly pink with a few strands of orange, yellow and white mixed in so I cut out much more pink in strands of ~48".  Note: you will be folding your strands in half to attach it to the dowel so keep that in mind when cutting to length.

  4. Fold yarn in half and pull the ends of the yarn around your dowel. Side loop to tighten and repeat.

  6. Alternate colors as you see fit until you've filled the dowel with yarn :-) Cheers!
