DIY Chevron Wall Hanging

This wall hanging was inspired by last week’s DIY Chevron Necklace. Instead of using corner braces, we’ll use shelf brackets to create the chevron pattern.

You’ll need 3 shelf brackets, leather string, and silver tube beads.

  1. First, cut a piece of leather string about 2 feet long.
  2. Tie two knots about 8 inches from the end on either side.
  3. String one of the shelf brackets through the ends and tie knots.
  4. Add on a silver tube to either end and tie two knots.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you’ve used all of the brackets.
  6. Tie two final knots at the end with two shorter pieces of leather string to create a tassel effect.
  7. Hang it and you’re done!

DIY Hardware Chevron Necklace

I love to make patterns out of everyday objects. When I spotted the corner braces at the hardware store stacked one on top of the other, I got excited! What a great way to recreate a chevron pattern! Then take that a step further and make it into a necklace. Hardware to fashion yet again!

You’ll need: leather string, 3 corner braces, some nuts and washers, and a pair of scissors.

  1. First, cut a string that’s about 6 inches longer than the length you’d like your necklace to be.
  2. Tie two knots about 6 inches from the end of either side of the string.
  3. String one of the corner braces onto the ends and tie two knots.
  4. Add several nuts and washers onto either side and tie two knots.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 until you’ve used all of the corner braces, tie two final knots, and you’re done!
