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!!
