Spring is coming, right? I am very much looking forward to some color in my yard! It is time for the crocuses to start making an appearance, and until they do, I am displaying flowers inside my house, with this adorable apothecary tube DIY flower wall decor. This wall hanger display was easy to create and I absolutely love how it turned out!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY flower wall decor:
- Plastic Bead Storage Tubes
- Unfinished Wooden Painting Panels
- 6 inch Wooden Ruler (3)
- Americana Gloss Enamels Craft Paint in: White Enamel, True Red, Yellow Enamel, and Desert Turquoise
- Tim Holtz Walnut Brown Distress Spray Stain
- Crop-a-dile or other Heavy Duty Hole Punch
- Core’dinations Sand It Gadget or Sandpaper
- Colored Craft Wire
- Hot Temp Glue Gun
The first thing you will want to do for this DIY flower wall decor tutorial is paint your wooden panel and your three rulers. Choose the colors you like. I went with white, teal, red and yellow. You only need one coat of paint, and it doesn’t even need to be a good coat.
On the rulers- get the stain down into the numbers on the rulers.
Remove the lids from the plastic bead tubes and wrap tubes with wire, leaving about an inch or two on both sides of the tube. Thread the wire through the holes in the ruler, and twist to secure the wire on the back side of the ruler.
Using a generous amount of hot glue, cover the back of the ruler, and adhere the ruler to the wooden panel.
Using a straw, fill each tube with water, and add cut flowers. You could skip the water, and add artificial flowers instead.
