Easy to make DIY boho wall decor
For this DIY, you can use items that you already have on hand. So, for the first DIY, you will need some nautical rope and one burner cover.
Start by painting your burner cover with some white chalk paint.
Then, start by gluing the beginning of the rope down in the center of the burner cover.
Make sure it would stay in place by adding some glue every now and then as you wind it around. Continue wrapping the rope around the entire burner cover until you get to the edges.
Then, keep going until you make sure all the edges are completely covered and wrapped.
For making the tassels, you will need some cardboard, scissors, and white yarn. The first thing to start with is taking a piece of cardboard and cut it out to be four and a half inches long.
Then, start wrapping your white yarn about 20 times for each tassel. Then wrap another piece of the yarn to cut out to be able to begin making your tassel.
Make sure to remove it carefully from the piece of cardboard.
Then, by using the pair of scissors, go to the very ends of the yarn, and cut that in half and place it on top of the piece of yarn that you cut out and create a double knot in the middle.
Once the knot is in place, go ahead and join the two ends together. And that center is where the knot is going to be at the top of your tassel.
What you need to do is to cut out another piece of yarn that is about eight inches or so, and then wrap it around the top of the tassel to create another double knot. Then use the ends of that string and wrap them around the tassel to cover up the double knots.
And voilà! You have got yourself a cute tassel. Repeat the same process for as many tassels as you need (around 17 tassels).
Then by using some hot glue, start gluing your tassel one by one around the edges of the nautical rope. You can even add your special touch to it.
Either by using different colors, or adding different pieces of decoration, it’s up to you.
You will need to spray your tassels by using some adhesive spray that will stiffen them and that’s a good trick that helps to keep the tassels perfect.
