Do you guys know Megan Schiller from the Art Pantry? I follow her Instagram account and it is overflowing with creative inspiration. A little while back Megan posted a picture of a wall hanging she and her students had made from pieces of wool. I loved it.
On Mother’s Day, Jack (7 yrs) and Sarah (5 yrs) threw me a party; balloons, streamers, the lot. It was very sweet. Afterwards when we tidied up, I had a basket of scrumpled up colourful streamers that were just too pretty to throw away.
So, inspired by Megan, Sarah and I made some beautiful wall hangings. We folded each streamer piece in half and tucked it back on itself to tie a knot. I had a few coloured pieces of dowel in our loose parts drawers which were perfect (I originally bought them from a dollar store), and we hang them with rainbow wool.
These wall hangings were a lovely project to work on together and were a great way to reuse materials. Each piece of streamer isn’t the same length and they are a little crumpled, but Sarah is so proud of her work – I’ll often catch her smiling up at them on the wall 🙂 which I think makes them pretty perfect.
