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.
- Yarn in various colors
- 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.
- 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.
- Fold yarn in half and pull the ends of the yarn around your dowel. Side loop to tighten and repeat.
- Alternate colors as you see fit until you've filled the dowel with yarn :-) Cheers!
