This is a very colorful home décor wall hanging made mostly out of knitting. Materials required are newspaper sheet (or any circular rim as per the size you require), acrylic paints (preferably Pidilite), hot glue or Fevicol, different colored wools- green, dark green, yellow, pink, purple, orange and black.
- Take a circular rim and paint it with black acrylic paint and leave it to dry OR take the newspaper sheet and make a stick out of it. Take the two ends of your newspaper stick and join them using glue. Then make the stick curve and adjust it according to the shape of a circle. Paint the newspaper stick circle black using acrylic paint.
- Take black wool (or any color wool and dip it in black paint and leave it to dry) and cut strings according to your circular rim, as shown in the above image attach the strings in a crisscross pattern.
- Take your different colored wool and start making flowers and leaves out of it. To make the stem, take your dark green wool and cast on 3 stitches on your knitting needle and simple continue knitting the 3 stitches till it reaches such length where you can wrap the stem around your circular rim.

4. After you finish knitting leaves, flowers and stem. Wrap the stem around the circular rim as shown in the above image and stick it firmly using Fevicol or hot glue. Then take your leaves and flowers and stick them firmly using hot glue on the net created by the crisscross of the black wool. Leave it to dry.
