DIY Flower Wall Hanging for Spring Decor

Thanks for Sharing!

Flowers are slowly popping up for the spring season and they’ve gotten me in the mood to create a new floral project. My DIY flower wall hanging for spring decor is the idea I came up with for an easy DIY project.

This simple floral decor can be used as hanging wall decor or as an inside door hanger.

The beautiful floral fabric I used came from a twill placemat that I found at a consignment store. It was sold “as is” because of a spot, but the flower print was so pretty that I couldn’t pass it up!

It’s time for the “Do it Over” Designers group to once again share our newest upcycled, recycled, DIY projects with our readers. Our items can be found in closets, barns, garages, yard sales, thrift stores, you name it! The theme this month is “fabric” so at the end of my post you’ll find links to see 9 more DIY projects that are fabric related.

Although you can purchase heavier weight fabric at a fabric store, such as decorator or outdoor fabric, you may discover it’s cheaper to find fabric with flowers in a thrift store.

I purchased the canvas banner at Hobby Lobby during a 90% clearance sale. I could no longer locate any being sold in craft stores, but I did find a 4-piece set on Amazon similar to the one I used.

HOW TO MAKE A FLORAL WALL HANGING

STEP 1 – CUT THE FLOWERS FROM THE FABRIC

Fussy cut the floral design from the piece of fabric, which is cutting out a specific area that will be used for your floral wall hanging project. I used fabric detail scissors for the intricate design.

I isolated the particular floral grouping that I thought would look best and fit my design area.

If you use a placemat like I did simply pull the two layers away from each other and snip into one layer in order to get to the flower print you plan to use.

STEP 2 – PAINT THE HANGING BANNER

After removing the dowel rod, begin painting the banner with an acrylic craft paint that coordinates with your flowers. 2 coats are needed.

STEP 3 – GLUE ON THE FLOWER FABRIC

Use a permanent spray adhesive to attach the flower fabric. You’ll need a large area to spray the back of the fabric piece to allow for the overspray.

Place the fabric down and press and smooth all areas to ensure adhesion.

STEP 4 – ADD THE RICK RACK TRIM

You’ll need to use a small bristle head artist brush and something to press down with other than your finger. I used the end of a paint brush to press the trim down (as seen in photo below.)

Begin glueing the trim at the top left hand corner using Mod Podge. Work in about two inch sections at a time.

Use the artist brush to dab small dollops of Mod Podge where the trim will be placed.

  • Dab the glue on in a thin line at the outer edges of the canvas.
  • Lay the trim down.
  • Don’t press so hard that glue seeps onto the top of the trim.
  • Slightly curve the trim at all corners.

STEP 5 – MAKE THE RICK RACK HANGER

  • Reinsert the dowel rod.
  • Tie the rick rack on the one end of the dowel.
  • Determine the length you want your wall hanging to hang.
  • Cut the trim.
  • Tie the rest of the trim on the other side of the dowel rod.

STEP 6 – ATTACH THE FAUX FLOWERS AND GREENERY

I used wire cutters to snip the faux flower head and the greenery. Use hot glue to attach each to the floral canvas.

With the type of greenery I used, some sprigs needed to be trimmed so the greenery would lay a little flatter against the canvas.

    I bought one of these banners last week without a purpose and you have inspired me! My plan was to just paint on it, but i like the idea of adding fabric! Cute idea.
