Hi ya’ll! Today I want to share with you how to make a flower wall hanging! My daughter has been wanting me to make this since she watched the movie Encanto about a year ago! She loved Isabella’s room and wanted flowers everywhere. So, I thought this cute flower wall hanging would be a good start!
If you have read any of my other DIY posts you will know that I love saving money and making my own versions of “store bought” decor, if possible! I didn’t want to spend $25 on an artificial floral wall hanging. So, I made a trip to Dollar Tree. Then found a branch in my woods and my total ended up being about $10!
What You Need
- Branch or Dowel Rod
- Twine or Yarn
- Faux Flowers
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Hot Glue Gun
- Tape Measure (Optional)
How To Make A Flower Wall Hanging- Part 1
Step 1: Preparing The Branch
The first step is to decide whether you will use a branch or a dowel rod. Then you will need to measure the width of the space you will be hanging it so you know what size branch or rod you will need. (My branch is approximately 43 inches and is hanging over a twin size bed.)
Once you have that figured out you will need to wrap twine or yarn around both ends of the branch for hanging.
*I measured in 7 inches on both ends. I also wrapped the twine around the branch 10x for a fuller look.
*Also, be sure to secure the ends of the twine so it doesn’t unravel once you hang it up.
Step 2: Measure The Twine
In the second step you will simply need to measure the length of the wall space so you know how long to cut the twine or yarn. (I measured mine at approximately 42 inches)
Then you will need to cut enough twine to cover the width of your branch. I cut 20 pieces but you can add more or less depending on the width of your branch and the look you are going for. If you want a fuller look, like a backdrop, then add more twine in order to add more flowers.
Step 3: Tie The Twine Onto The Branch
Step 3 is very easy. All you need to do is tie the twine onto the branch. I left an approximate 2 inch gap between each strand. You are welcome to measure if you want it to be exact. But I just eyeballed it then adjusted certain strands once I had them all tied on.

Step 4: Glue The Flowers Onto The Twine
So far details haven’t been extremely important, but in this step they are! You do not want to start glueing on flowers then run out before filling all of the strands.
I would recommend laying the wall hanging on the floor and spacing out the flowers.
I skipped a strand of twine, then added 4 light pink flowers to a strand, and added 3-4 pink flowers on the next strand. Then I once again again skipped a strand before repeating the pattern all over again.
I had purchased 9 faux flower bouquets which supplied me with 48 flowers once I removed them from the stems.
Once you get the flowers lined up, and are pleased with how it looks, you can start glueing! Simply add a dab of hot glue to the back of the flower, then place it in the twine.
*Repeat this with all of the flowers.
Step 5: Hang Up The Flower Wall Hanging
Now, using a Command hook or picture nail, hang your beautiful masterpiece on the wall!
