Want a fun home decor craft project, perfect for a kids room or nursery? I love these sweet little floral and yarn wall hangings. And this version requires super inexpensive supplies – just some yarn, crepe paper, and a ring!
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Brass Ring for Wreath base (choose from big or small)
- Hot glue gun
- Crepe paper (tons of color options!)
DIY Floral and Yarn Wall Hanging Instructions:
The first thing you need to do is make your crepe paper flowers.
Flower Step #1:
Select crepe papers for the flowers and trace petal shapes on them. Use scissors to cut out the traced petals. You will need 6 large petals, 5 medium large petals, 4 medium petals and 3 small petals for the flower craft.
Flower Step #2:
Cut a 1 cm slit from the bottom middle point of the petals.
Flower Step #3:
Overlap and glue both sides of the slits. Similarly prepare the other petal cutouts. Also, cut out a small round shape for the flower base.
Flower Step #4:
Grab the 6 large petals and glue them around on the round base, near its outer side.
Flower Step #5:
Glue the medium large petals next, then the medium ones and finally the small ones towards the center. Cut a strip from a different colored crepe paper and cut small fringes along the long side.
Flower Step #6:
Roll the fringed strip and glue it on the center of the petal arrangement.
Flower Step #7:
Similarly create 2 or more crepe paper peonies.
Now that you have your flowers, time to create the whole look!
Take the round brass ring (tons of options here!) or simply make a custom wreath base from craft wire, as shown here.
Select yarns for the hanging decor and cut them into double the required length for the wreath.
Grab 2 strands of yarn and fold them into half by forming a loop at one end. Place the loop under the base.
Keeping the loop under the base, draw the closed ends of the yarn strands over the base and drawing it through the loop again.
Pull the open ends of the strands all the way through.
Similarly attach the rest of the rest of the yarn strands.
Add different colored yarns to the base for a vibrant look. Attach the flower on the base, over the yarns.
Attach the flowers however you like. Use hot glue to attach the flowers on the base.
You could make these in a bunch of different colors as gifts! Super budget friendly and so fun.
