Wall Mount Flower Boxes


I am working on our Master Bedroom right now and wanted to come up with something fun and unique for the walls.  I came up with these wall mount flower boxes.  They are super cute and add just a touch of femininity without adding pink (which my hubby appreciates)!  

I found these great apple green hydrangeas at Michael's Dollar Days for $3 each (usually $5.99).


The galvanized metal bins are also from Michael's.  They are $5.99 each but I had a 40% off coupon!  woo hoo!  Love that!  I started out searching for a metal "something" that would hang on the wall but soon figured out I'd have to make my own.  I decided hot gluing a tooth hanger was the easiest method.  These metal bins can be used for so many different things, so I didn't want to do anything too permanent.  Not the prettiest method, but it worked!  Here's what it looks like:


I trimmed my flowers down (I did leave a little to bend on the end for more stability).  You can also use a little bit of styrofoam to help hold them in place.

They needed a little something extra, so I added some stick on numbers to the front.


I thought about stenciling the numbers, but decided I would rather leave it flexible so I can change them seasonally if I want.  I just used some stick on letters that I had.  They were red, so I painted them with some acrylic paint and stuck them on! 



The whole project cost me less than $30 and they are just so cute!!

    I fell in love with these beautiful planters when I saw them. I love the galvanized bin, and the bright green hydrangeas, the numbers, pretty much everything about it is sooo pretty.
