Lacy Summer Crochet Wall Decor

How to Make a Crochet Wall Hanging
The awesome thing about crochet wall hangings is that they are usually very easy to make. While you can make a wall hanging of any shape or size, I personally love rectangular wall hangings. Here are a few simple steps you can take anytime you want to customize your own crocheted wall decor:
- Start by crocheting a rectangle in your desired stitch pattern
- Block your rectangle
- Attach a stick to the top
- Add fringe to the bottom
Now, are there usually more details that go into it? Yes! But these are the simple steps I go through anytime I design a new wall hanging.

I used Mary Maxim Mellowspun Yarn in the color Robins Egg to make this wall hanging. This is a DK weight acrylic yarn, and it worked great! A little steam blocking causes the stitches to open up and look beautiful.

Attaching your wall hanging to a stick:
You’re so close to being done! The very last step is to attach your finished wall hanging to a stick or craft dowel of your choice, and then make the hanger.
Step 1: With the WRONG side of wall hanging facing, lay out stick right above the last row of the lace. Insert hook into the first sc of the row, then place the stick on top of your hook.
Step 2: Draw up a loop around the stick. (We are basically just making a sc around the stick!)

YO, pull through both loops on hook to finish your first sc around the stick.
Step 3: Ch 5.
Step 4: Repeat steps 1-2, except this time, insert your hook into the next ch-sp to make the sc.
Step 5: Repeat [ch 5, sc in next ch-sp around dowel] across the whole row. When you get to the edge, do the last sc around the stick in the last sc of the row.
This is what your work should look like when you turn it around so the FRONT is facing:
Make the Hanger
After finishing the attachment row, do not fasten off! From here, ch 75 or until the hanger is the length of your choice.
Lastly, slip stitch to the sc on the other side of the wall hanging.
Fasten off and weave in all ends!
I hope you guys enjoyed this easy wall hanging…and I hope you find the perfect place for it in your home this summer!
