Experiment with different colours and shades of yarn to achieve your own unique piece.

Here’s a great way to add warmth and texture to your walls. All you need is a blank artist’s canvas, several different-coloured yarns and a little patience!


Gather your supplies

  • Stretched and primed artist’s canvas
  • Acrylic paint and roller (optional)
  • Yarn in a variety of colours and types
  • Here's How

    • Step 1: If you wish, give your canvas 2 coats of paint so your artwork has a background colour, allowing to dry after each coat.

      Step 3: Slowly and carefully, wind rest of yarn around canvas, keeping rows close together and changing colours as desired by knotting 1 colour to another at back of canvas. Continue winding until entire canvas is covered. Knot yarn at back to finish.
