DIY wall hanging // stories by sarah sherman samuelThis wall hanging was a fun last minute addition to our NYE PARTY and I might just keep  it up year ‘round! Read more for the full DIY…

Supplies needed:
a 48″ long .5″ wooden dowel rod
yarn (for hanging)
gold table skirt, silver table skirt
white paper fringe
packing tape
metallic tape
scissors DIY party wall hanging s // stories by sarah sherman samuel I did a few sketches of the design before hitting the fringe but overall this was a figure out as I go type of project. I took down the evergreen from my CHRISTMAS WALL-HANGING, re-used the same rod, and bought these table skirts. Then, armed with just tape and scissors, a few minutes later I had a shiny beautiful focal point for our party!

I ran a piece of packing tape along the top of the fringe, down entire length, and folded it over the top securing the two halves of the fringe together.
