Boho Repurposed Placemat Wall Hanging
I turned a Pier One Import placemat into a fun boho wall hanging.
I like to purchase clip art images on Etsy and found this tribal mandala set because I like the color palette.
I used leftover pendulum clock bobs for the base of the mandala clip art but chipboard (or card board) circles or plastic packaging would work just as well...all you need is a circle shape.
After all the clock bobs were covered with a mandala (adhered with a glue stick) I tied a gold lame cord about 16 inches long to each one. Cut the cord long....make your design and cut off the extra length later.
Lay out the mandala pieces so you like the color and pattern combinations then tie to a 1/4" thick piece of dowel. After all the gold lame cords are attached, use hot glue to adhere the dowel to the top of the placemat. Use another 1/4" thick piece of dowel to make a hanger by adhering the top fringe to the back with hot glue.
Tie a piece of burlap twine to make a hanger on the wooden dowel.
Enjoyed the project?
