Spring Hanging Design Using Bamboo Serving Boards
Hello everyone. How have you been? I hope all is well with all of you. If you haven't done so yet be sure to check out my YouTube channel Steph Creates-DIY Home & Crafts. I would love for you to come along on this crafting journey with me. Today I am sharing an easy project. We are creating two Spring hanging designs using bamboo serving boards. I purchased these boards at my local Big Lots store. It was two for five dollars. I actually was not sure what I was going to do with them, but the other day I figured it out. I will provide a step-by-step tutorial, a material list, and a video tutorial will also be included. Happy crafting!
Hot glue or any adhesive of your choice
One wooden serving board
One decorative napkin
One craft chalkboard watering can
Start by applying your acrylic paint to your wooden serving board. I purchased my boards at my local Big Lots store. It came in a pack of two for five dollars.
Next, take your decorative napkin and unfold it. Place your napkin on top of your painted board and begin to trace out the center of your board. If your napkin has a second layer be sure to remove it. Take your scissors and cut out your traced circle.
Take your mod podge and use your paintbrush to apply a thin layer of your mod podge to the center of your board. Place your traced circle over the mod podge and gently press it down. I always use my blow dryer between each coat of mod podge. Apply a second layer of your mod podge to the top of your napkin.
Now you are ready to add your twine through the top hole and tie it off. This will be used for hanging your design. You can also add a bow, but that is entirely optional. Use your floral cutters and remove just the tops of your flowers. Add them to your board using your adhesive.
For the following design, I decided to apply white acrylic paint.
I added a ribbon to this design. I cut it to size and added it across the center of my board.
Next, use your floral cutters to cut your flowers. Begin to add your flowers to your board using your adhesive. I glued a few of my flowers just below my ribbon and I also slipped a few of my flowers into the ribbon.
I found these craft chalkboard watering cans at my local Dollar Tree. I wanted to add one to my design after adding my yellow paint to it.
This is completely optional, but you can add a floral sticker to your watering can. I thought it was a pretty addition to it.
Finish off your design by adding your twine and adding a twine bow, which is optional.
Your Spring hanging decorations are complete. I love how simple this craft was to create.
