DIY: Minimalist Yarn Garland

Today I will show you how to make a crazy simple minimalist yarn garland!

I wanted something clean, simple and most importantly, toddler-friendly decoration to spruce Coral’s crib. I came up with the idea of making my own minimalist yarn garland. It can be hung up on a wall if you prefer, but I attached it to the side of Coral’s crib instead.

First, you will need a string, as long as you want the yarn garland to be.

Start cutting the yarn in the size you want. You can do different sizes to give it a different look or make them all the same. My yarn garland is a little bit in between. I didn’t really pay attention to the measurement. I just cut them as I go, using the last piece of yarn as a measurement.

Believe me, you will cut a lot of yarn pieces. This project is time-consuming, but so, so easy and worth the time! You can use this time cutting the yarn pieces thinking about that last episode of The Walking Dead.

When you are done with cutting all the pieces, start doing this:

If you find yourself running out of yarn pieces, cut some more using the last piece of yarn as a measurement.

You can do a full yarn garland from one side of the crib to another side or leave it empty on both sides.

Now, it is time to attach the minimalist yarn garland to the side of the crib. You can use command hooks, but I prefer to tie the end of both string sides to both edges of the crib.

I love the white on white design of this minimalist yarn garland. Coral likes to play with the yarn by running her fingers through.

What do you think? Do you like the white on white design or do you prefer it to be colorful?

  1. The white design looks perfect 🙂 Some other light color would look good too, like pink or teal.
