Happy Thursday friends! We are getting close to the weekend and I am definitely looking forward to it. Today, I’m sharing a quick little DIY for some spring wall decor.
When I saw this wall basket at Hobby Lobby, I really liked it and wanted to use it to feature some spring greenery. If you have a similar basket, you just need two other simple items and a couple of minutes to get a cute taste of spring in your home. Plus, even if you have to buy the basket and greenery like I did, this project still costs under $10 (taking advantage of sales).
- A wall planter of some sort; I used this one from my post over here (galvanized canisters/vases are really popular right now too!)
- Two 12-14″ sprigs of boxwood or another leafy faux flower/greenery stem
- One square cloth napkin about 20″ x 20″ (great time to showcase vintage linens)
You’ll start off by wrapping your two stems with a plastic shopping bag (you could also use tissue paper). This gives stability to your arrangement as well as bulking it out a little. Place one stem higher than the other to give the illusion of a larger bouquet, and wrap the bag tightly around, tucking the end in.
Fold your napkin as shown and place the “bouquet” in the center, making sure the napkin will cover the plastic bag.
Wrap one side of the napkin around the bouquet, tucking the end underneath. Wrap the opposite end around the bouquet and tuck the whole thing into your container. Fold the top edges down, adjusting it however you like.
Tip: If you are using a taller or opaque container, you may want to use a couple napkins or place your napkin up higher (since no one will see the lower half of the bouquet anyway) so you have more “overhang” on top of the vessel. This will give more visual interest.
And there you go! An easy peasy way to dress up a blank wall for spring. Let me know if you give it a try!
