DIY | Wall hanging planner

As a lover of stationary products and crafts I’ve been so giddy over making this wall hanging planner. I usually lose all of my little pieces of paper that I write my to do lists on or they get lost on a random pages of a sketch book. This wall hanging planner is perfect for keeping me on track, or just to do some fun drawings on.

A super simple DIY project that you have to try! and it looks pretty cool too. I’ve made two, one using a white poster roll and the other using a black.

wooden beads and leather | Hannah in the house


  • Poster roll
  • Leather cord/thong
  • Wooden beads (a pack of 100, 12mm beads will be more than enough)
  • Large bulldog style clips


  • Cut a piece of the leather cord to slightly bigger than width of the poster roll, adding roughly 5cm each side. This is so you have enough to tie knots each side.
  • Feed this cut leather cord through the poster roll.
  • Cut another piece of leather cord 1.5 x the length of the poster roll.
  • With this long piece, thread the wooden beads too fill the cord, leaving roughly 5cm at each end. Use a clip at one end to stop the beads from falling off.
  • Then tie one end of the beaded cord to one end of the cord fed through the poster roll. Repeat on the other side.
  • Find a hook or screw to hang it from.
  • Unroll the paper by holding each end of the cord, lifting the roll and unravelling the paper.
  • To weigh the poster roll down add two large bulldog style clips. The hanging cord will be squeezing the roll at the top to stop it from rolling down.

Here’s a shot using a black poster roll, using a metallic or white pen can really look cool on this paper.

    Thought you might like to know I attempted to try this but it didn’t go down to well, I just recently refurbished my home office, brought new furniture and made space for a chaise lounge from and I think I may now have to go on the search for a planner, DIY isnt for me…

    Such a good idea, I like to write things down and visualise tasks ahead. I can even design my next projects by drawing on there!

    Really lovely so thanks for sharing 🙂
