Spring Metal Flower Wall Hanging

3 Materials
45 Minutes

I am so ready for Spring! What about you?

Today I will show you how I created 2 Spring Decor Flower Wall Hangings using Dollar Tree Metal Flowers.

Step 1.

  • The first thing I did was remove the stems from both of the metal flowers by bending them back and forth until they broke.

Step 2

  • Next, I bend the flower petals up so I could get under them with paint. Be careful when you do this not to bend them until they break just enough to get your paintbrush under.

Step 3

  • I used black chalk paint to cover all of the bright colors on the flowers.

Step 4

  • To create the worn look I was going for I used 3 different colors of acrylic and chalk paint. Elephant Gray, Nutmeg Brown, and Pearl White.

  • I simply placed a small amount of each on my wax paper.

  • I used a Dollar Tree makeup sponge and dipped it into all 3 colors at the same time.

  • I then dabbed off the extra and began dabbing the paint cover sponge onto the flower until I was happy with the metallic look.

Step 5

  • I painted the back of the frame with white chalk paint.

Step 6

  • To create the shiplap look I used a Dollar Tree square and lined it up with the top of the board. I first used a pencil to draw the lines.

  • I used a Dollar Tree eye lining brush and some elephant gray chalk paint to go over the pencil lines.

  • I have found that Dollar Tree makeup brushes make amazing paintbrushes. I pick up more of them with every trip I make to Dollar Tree.

Step 7

  • I put hot glue on the back metal bar of the flower and glued them to the center of each frame.

    Not sure why you would want black flowers.

      They aren't black. They look like old tin flowers that have been left out in the weather. Old and Rusty. The picture just doesn't show how pretty they turned out.

    Love this idea.... I also bought a bunch of those bright flowers and took one off of it's stem and opened the petals and then spray painted it white and added four little rhinestones in the center. I use it for an arrangement on a white ceramic cake stand with white candles. I love it ...but my daughter would love the one you did... thinking of doing that for her. Thanks again for a great idea.
