Happy Spring, my friends! I’m so excited that Spring is officially here. It’s already getting warmer outside, we’re slowly getting the Spring jackets and rubber boots in rotation, and I’m chomping at the bit to start digging in the garden. Even though Spring is a little slower to arrive up here in Alberta, Canada, I like to start making our home feel fresh and Springy inside ASAP. This unique and pretty wall hanging was made from a doily I found at Value Village, and I think it’s so unique and Spring-like. It didn’t take long to make, it only cost me $4, and I love its boho vibe! Let me show you how to make it.

For this project, you’ll need:

  • a medium or large doily (I found mine at Value Village for $4)
  • a driftwood or old branch (I found mine in our ditch)
  • a needle and thread
  • some cotton yarn similar to the colour of the doily
  • some faux flowers
  • floral wire

To make this wall hanging, I simply folded a doily over a large branch and stitched it to itself.

Next, I cut some yarn into forearm length strands, and tied them onto the bottom of the doily to create a fringe.

I also tied a piece of yarn to each side of my branch to create a hanger.

Finally, I made a simple symmetrical flower arrangement, tied it together with floral wire, and fasted it to the top of my branch with some yarn.

  1. Ooh I’m obsessed with this! I couldn’t find doilies anywhere (weirdly enough lol) so I made something similar last year for my daughter’s nursery by cutting up a lace runner… but if I come across some doilies I’m definitely trying this out – it’s beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Megan. We love the idea of using a lace runner as well. Always such a blast to DIY ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love how this turned out. At first, I thought it was macramed! I’m pinning this for later and will keep an eye out at the thrift stores. Or, maybe buy a new doily and tea dye it if I can’t find a thrifted one.

    1. You’re too sweet, Cyndi! Definitely keep an eye out, be sure to check garage sales as well ๐Ÿ™‚
