This easy to make tree hanger will look lovely in any kid’s bedroom. It’s pretty and practical and a great storage solution.
You will need:
- MDF board
- Fine sandpaper
- Wallpaper glue
- Craft knife
- Dowel sticks
- Double-sided tape
9 simple steps and you’re there!
- Draw the outline of a tree on the board and cut it out using a jig-saw.
- Sand all the edges with sandpaper.
- Lay the wallpaper on a flat surface and cover the back of the paper evenly with glue.
- Carefully place the board on the paper.
- Turn over and rub to remove any air bubbles and to ensure the paper is stuck to the board.
- Cut away the excess paper with the craft knife following the edges of the MDF tree.
- Drill holes in the board the same size as the dowel sticks. Cut the sticks into 10-cm lengths and cover with wallpaper.
- Press them into the holes. They will be used as hangers.
- Place pieces of double-sided tape on the back of the tree and press firmly against the wall.
