Flower Plate Wall Garden

I asked my granddaughter what she would like to have on the wall over her bed.

I showed her some inspiration pics that I had . . .

~ ~ and she was leaning towards a mural of a tree.

I am not an artist by any means . . . but wanted to see what I could come up with.

I had some “flower plates” in my dining room that I purchased from Arhaus.

I thought hmmmm . . . this may work.

Flower Plate Bouquet

I arranged the pattern on paper to make a template . . . marking the spots where the nails would go.

Then taped the paper to the wall and placed the nails in the wall.

Gathered my materials . . .

Then started to paint and connect the “flowers” . . .

Added a ribbon to “tie it together” . . .

My “sweetie’s” favorite color is red . . .

~ ~ and since there is no red in the duvet cover . . . I thought I would choose the coral shade . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ for one of the ribbons, rather than the yellow.

My “sweetie” has given it two thumbs up !!!

We are still working on her space . . .

Fairy Garland

We are adding some “Fairies” . . . that I first saw on Mary’s (Home is Where the Boat Is) blog . . .

Hat Rack

And a “place to hang her hat” ! !

Hope you enjoyed my little “DIY” project today . . .

~ ~ I do not get a chance to do many of these, but it is so much fun creating things for our “sweetie” !!

Have a fabulous day!!! . . .

  1. Very cute, Shirley! Your flower plate artwork is perfect for your Sweetie’s bedroom! I would have never thought to make these into one plant. I love her hat tree and the fairy is adorable. Her room is really coming together well!

  2. Shirley that is adorable.You are such a talented Grandma.

  3. Very clever! I don’t get a chance to do many DIY projects either. I absolutely can’t tell you why because I’m retired. I think it has to do with all the things I do for my sweeties and the one big sweetie who has lived with me 50 years! LOL

  4. What a great idea for a little girl’s room, and a nice change from the usual “plate display wall.” Love it, Shirley!

  20. I love it, Shirley- such a great idea to turn the plates into a sweet little bouquet for your sweetie.

  21. Shirley, your flowers look so good and I am so glad that your “Sweetie” approved. Enjoy her now as the get older their personalities develop. I am finding that out now with my Kelly she always wants to do it her way LOL Then when it’s wrong, I go back and show her how it should be and she is good with that.
    You are so lucky to have her close. I am going with to my sons for my Birthday and will be spending time with Kelly. I am so looking forward to that.
    Have a great week.

  24. Oh, the sweet memories Graylyn will carry with her all of her life of her beautiful Grandma teaching her such artful sophistication. I just love that really creative design, it’s just perfect. Who would have ever thought to hang little plates to make a bunch of flowers on a wall. Just genius. Graylyn is so lucky to have you! And you are so lucky to have her to pass down your ideas and talent. I love your really close relationship with her. That is a real treasure for both of you. PS: cards and pix in the mail today.

  25. Shirley, that is the cutest thing ever!! And how special for her that you created it! 🙂
