Easy Wall Pocket for Flowers

Are you looking for an easy DIY project that looks adorable? This one is it!  For this project you can either cut out a tag shape from wood like I did or you can buy one at the dollar shape and repurpose it.

Like I said, I began by cutting a tag shape out of a piece of plywood then drilling a hole in the top of the tag for the hanger. 

I'm using the plywood with one nicely finished side. 

If you don't cut your own wood, go to the Dollar Tree and grab a tag shaped, ready made sign and remove the design with sandpaper. 

I painted my wooden tag with a warm grey color then used a dry brush technique to add aging.

I sanded the edges of the tag then used a light coat of stain over the top and edges to give it a slight aged look.

Now came the easiest part. 

I am using the sleeve of an old sweater that was on its way to the donation pile. 

I love using donation clothes for DIY projects

I cut down the seam of the sleeve and wrapped it around my tag. 

If you're using a large tag you can use the belly of the sweater.

I used the hemmed edge for the bottom, wrapped the sleeve around the board and hot glued it closed in the back.

I also used hot glue to close the bottom hemmed edge at the bottom of the tag. 

The next part is up to you, I added a small Welcome stencil to the top of the tag, it's really hidden behind these flowers but with smaller flowers it might show.

The top of the pocket is unfinished, you can pull a few threads to create a fringe. 

Use Fray Check to keep the fringe from unravelling

Flowers in wall pockets can be made with anything including this old wooden scoop.

I also made one in the past using metal tiles.

Rebar wire tied into a loop with a few curly cues hangs the tag through the hole in the tag.

Fill the pocket with your favorite faux flowers and greens, it can be changed out easily for any season!
