This idea started when I was trying to fill some wall space in the Habitat ReStore room. I needed to use what I had on hand, and it needed to be a quick craft. Little did I know, they would be sold out in the first half-hour!
These were so easy to make, anyone can do it!
I took a couple of pieces of leftover hardwood flooring and painted them with a whitewash, but you can use any wood scrap. In the next photo, I have used a piece of scrap lumber that we had left over from one of DL's projects. I stained it with the amazing vinegar wash. It would also look great with a bright color as the background.
I found I had some leftover wire from the ReStore project , too--I had used some of it to hang my painted window. I just started bending petals until I had kind of a multi-layered flower. Then I drilled a hole in the wood, put the screw from the cabinet knob from the back through to the front (you'll need to use the longer of the two screws that come with the knob).
I placed the center of the flower over the screw--I did have to pound the wire at the center of the flower a little flatter with a hammer--and screwed in the knob. Then I drilled a pilot hole in the top and screwed in an eye.
As you can see, I also made a star with the wire and attached it the same way. These are cute little items that would make easy-peasy fun and sleazy gifts! (Except for the sleazy part. Although you COULD make it sleazy by taking off your top. I'm not sure that's a good idea, seeing as though the project requires power tools. Read my disclaimer.)
