Do you still have a bald spot on the wall or do you still need a last-minute present? How about a super cool dried flower triangle? Or several? You can hang them on your wall or in the window and of course you can also give them away.
The fastest and best dried flower gift
The dried flower triangle is one of the fastest DIY ideas we’ve implemented so far. You neither need a lot of materials nor a great handicraft talent.
We simply used bamboo straws for this wall or window decoration. They have a great look and are available either in organic or zero-waste stores or online. Of course, you can also use other round wooden or metal strips, but these should be hollow so that you can thread a cord through them.
Here we go! ?
- Bamboo straws
- Wire cord
- Dried flowers
- Hot glue gun or craft glue
That’s how it works:
First you thread three straws on a string. As soon as all three are threaded, you tie the two ends of the string together so that a triangle is formed. Since we were using a wire string, we could just wrap the ends together. If you are using a different line, you can simply knot the ends together. The main thing is that the (wire) cord is long enough that you can easily hang up the triangle. To do this, knot or wrap the ends in a loop.
When the triangle is in place, you can glue.
While the hot glue gun is warming up, you can trim the dried flowers. Get creative and decide for yourself whether you want to cut off the stems completely or if you want to leave a piece on. A mixture of large and small flowers, grass and limonium is particularly suitable. Our favorites are dried everlasting flowers, dried delphinium and pampas grass. If you are unsure, you can also try the flowers and grasses first.
As soon as you are satisfied with the arrangement, you can start gluing. We recommend that you start in one of the corners and then work step by step in the direction of another corner. You keep doing this until your triangle looks the way you imagined it to be.
We are really looking forward to your dried flower triangle. We would therefore be very happy if you send us photos of your DIY triangle or link us on Instagram or Facebook.
