Yarn Wall Hangings I love this project! It is so open ended and can be done by kids aged 5 all the way up to adults. You can use yarn, ribbon, lace, rope. You can add beads. You can hang them on wooden dowels, sticks from the yard, even driftwood. We made these in the spring during my Little Artists class and they came out so beautiful and individual. I’d love to do a family workshop with these. What do you think?
