Easy DIY Wall Hanging and Giveaway

Easy-DIY-Wall-Hanging-Artzy Creations 2

Are you looking for creative ways to add some more decor to your house, but don’t want to spend a lot of money?  Today, I have an easy solution for you.  This Easy DIY Wall Hanging can be created in no time and requires very few materials.

Our house is pretty eclectic.  We have lots of art work from all over the world in addition to what I have created too.   I wanted to be able to continue some of the Southwestern motif throughout our house and tie it in with this Peruvian blanket that I really love.  So, I thought why not create a simple wall hanging.  I found a stencil for Royal Design Studio Stencils that I absolutely fell in love with and knew I had to use for this project.  It’s called the Native American Navajo Damask Furniture Stencil that you can find here.  I used the furniture size stencil because I wanted my design to be large enough for a wall hanging.  So, let’s get started and see just how easy it is to make a wall hanging.

Supplies Needed:

  • Canvas (I cut down a large canvas that was intended for a painting, but ended up getting a tear in it.  It ended up being large enough.  You could also purchase heavy canvas from the fabric store and apply gesso to it.  Gesso prevents the paint from soaking into your canvas.  The nice part about gesso is that it’s already white so you really wouldn’t need to buy white acrylic paint for this project.)
  • Royal Design Studio Stencil
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Foam Roller
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Dowel Rod
  • Black Yarn
  • Hot Glue
  • Hot Glue Gun

Step 1:  Cut the canvas a little bit larger than the stencil.  The sheet size to the stencil is 16 x 11.5″.  Make sure to allow extra allowance at the top for the dowel rod.

Step 2:  Using spray adhesive, spray the back of the stencil.  Lay the stencil in place and use your hands to make sure the stencil is firmly adhered.

Step 3:  Using the foam roller, roll the black acrylic paint onto the stencil.

Step 4:  Let the paint dry.

Step 5.  Remove the stencil.

Step 6: If you have excess amount of canvas at the bottom, trim it.

Step 7:  Make a pocket for your dowel rod by folding it over and hot gluing in place.

Step 8:  Tie the yarn to both ends. and then hang.

Umbrella Wreath

Howdy Artzy creations readers! This is Sherri here visiting from Made From Pinterest. I am so excited to share this umbrella wreath with you. But first, I have to tell you how fun it was to meet Melanie at a blogging conference last weekend. I was so excited to meet her in person! I knew I liked her online, and she is just as wonderful and fun to talk to in person. We had a nice lunch together and got to talk all things blogging, crafting, kids, families and lives. We three sisters at MFP just knew if we lived in the same city we would want to hang out with Melanie and we were right!

One little trick will keep your flowers fresh for a week or two! This is such a creative take on a wreath that has a little bit of whimsy. I saw these tulips at my local grocery store and just had to have them. I love the lavender petals with that delicate white strip! I had seen an umbrella wreath from Random Thoughts and thought these tulips would look beautiful and brighten up my grey umbrella. Usually this craft is done with artificial flowers. So…I needed to figure out how I could do it with my pretty tulips without them dying in a few days without water.Celebrate spring with this stunning fresh floral arrangement on your front door.  One little trick will keep your flowers fresh for a week or two! This is such a creative take on a wreath that has a little bit of whimsy.Amazon to the rescue! I ordered Aquapiks. Seriously, these things are major floral craft game changers!!!! It’s like an individual vase for each flower. The hole in the lid of the Aquapik was not big enough for the stem of a tulip, so I just cut a few slits for a better fit. I prepared the flowers by removing any damaged petals, and I removed all the lower leaves. This way all the water will be going where you want it and the bottom part of the bouquet will not be too bulky. Then I slid all my lids on each flower and in a bucket next to the sink. It was easy to fill each tube with water, add the flower and secure the lid. Umbrella wreath collageMake sure to have a bucket to put the flowers in. You want to keep the water tubes upright, or a few of them might leak.Celebrate spring with this stunning fresh floral arrangement on your front door.  One little trick will keep your flowers fresh for a week or two! This is such a creative take on a wreath that has a little bit of whimsy.I set the umbrella in another bucket for support and loosely tied the ribbon to keep the flowers upright. Now it was time to do some flower arranging. I carefully slid each flower into the upside down umbrella. When I had them arranged the way I wanted, I tightened the ribbon and tied a bow. I hung the umbrella by the handle on a wreath hanger. I love how inviting and beautiful this looks on my front door. It reminds me of the saying April showers bring May flowers.
