Succulents, dried flowers, tropical plants….oh my! If you are loving the botanical trend as much as I am, you’ll love this stylish Botanical Bar Cart. I created an eye-catching backdrop for it that is super simple to make. Just follow the easy DIY steps below and give your bar cart a botanical makeover.
What You Will Need:
- DIY Unfinished Wood Picture Frames
- Dried Flowers
- Pale Pink Acrylic Paint
- Clear Glue
Remove the backing and glass from the frame.
Paint the frame pale pink and leave to dry.
Take a small dot of clear glue and dab onto the FRONT of the dried flower. Then place the flower, face down onto the glass insert. Leave to dry.
Place the glass insert back into the frame. Ensure the FRONT of the flowers is facing outwards. Next, move the clasps back in place to secure the glass insert (there will be some “wiggle” room without the backing, this is okay, it won’t fall out). Do not put the backing on, this is no longer needed.
The frames are super light. Add a small amount of mounting putty or removable wall mounts on each corner of the frame. This is sufficient for hanging the frames.
Measure out equal distances between the frames (to preference) and hang the frames. By using mounting putty these can easily be adjusted if you change your spacing preference.
Tip: Use a level to ensure the frames line up.
I hope you enjoy this DIY as much as I enjoyed creating it.
