Thank You to Endless Leather. I was sent some samples to try and use in a DIY Project. I was thinking of making bracelets, but this idea came to me instead – I hope you like it! While this is an (unpaid) sponsored post, all content, opinions are and always will be my own.
Endless Leather sent me, from Left to Right:
(Click below to take you to the product category if interested) and to make this DIY Boho Chevron Wall Hanging just like above …
- Cork Cords – Natural / Gold 10mm x 2mm (x 1 metre) – Flecks of gold on this natural cork flat cord are very pretty. It’s also available in silver. Soft to work and easy to cut with scissors.
- Buffalo Leather Lace – Whisky 10mm x 2mm (x 1 metre) – Rich colour, you will need a sharp scalpel for slicing this product.
- Round Leather Cords High Quality – Navy 5mm (x 1 metre) – Navy blue! Something a little different. I lightly sanded the side for gluing to ensure it adhered well. Scalpel for slicing.
- Cork Cord – Pastel White 10mm x 2mm (x 1 metre) – Natural cork again, with a white coating. Very pretty. Thicker than the natural cord with gold (above) – so you will need your scalpel.
You could use just these products to make your Wall Hanging, but I mixed it up a little with some odd ribbons and trims I had on hand too.
You will need:
- Cords as listed above from Endless Leather (check them out – HUGE range!)
- Various Ribbons and Trims including a small piece of string for hanging
- Scalpel / Xacto Knife Best for slicing cords rather than scissors
- Cutting Mat
- Scissors For cutting ribbons and trims
- Stiffened Felt Fabric Buy a long enough piece for your wall hanging
- Glue Choose one suitable for gluing cords. I used Aldi Brand Craft Super Glue.
- Something sharp To poke a hole in the felt for the hanging thread
- Large Needle To pull the hanging thread through or poke through!
1. Gather your supplies.
2. Work out your lengths to cut on the angle (chevron). This is an important step.
3. Note how you need to cut LONGER. The length is longer when horizontal.
4. Allow for this diagonal measurement to ensure you have enough length.
5. Finish slicing and cutting all your cords. Lay out and take a PHOTO!
6. Draw a centre line on your felt and start gluing. Get your angle right!
7. Continue gluing and check with a ruler that you’re even on both sides.
8. Finish by slicing the excess cord from the top and bottom after your final gluing.
9. Poke a small hole with something sharp, then thread your hanging cord through.
10. Tie a small knot and glue down firmly.
Display your finished piece! Note the tassel trim on the bottom. I glued this on, then the last piece glued down was actually the whisky colour (over the top part of the tassel trim) to neatly finish over the tassel trim. You may have some slight trimming on the side too – just slice and cut away any excess to keep the lines straight and neat at the sides.
