8 Simple Steps to a Simple Wall-Hanging - A Tutorial

Wall hanging diy

Welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays on Marigolds' Loft.
Today I want to show you how to create this simple but effective wall-hanging in 8 easy steps.

For this project you will need:

Wall-hanging gonis products

 Some serviettes with designs that you would like to use for your backgrounds and deco-inchies
Gonis Finisher* (Water resistant Lack)
DecoPointers* (Paint to give your project its' finishing touches)
Deco-Inchies* (Cardboard pressouts)
Maxi-Inchies* (cardboard backings 10cm)
Basis Decor* (Cover up base coat)

*I use Gonis Products as I am a distributor of these amazing craft products and love their quality and versatility. If you can't find these products in your vicinity you will have to substitute them, hence the descriptions in brackets.

Wall hanging deco DIY

1. Find the pieces of serviette that you will be covering your Deco-Inchies*.
2. Cover the Deco-Inchies* with Basis Decor*

3. Remove the back layers of the serviette so that there is only the top layer left.
4. Place the top layer on top of the still damp Deco-Inchies*
5. Using some Finisher* attach the serviette to the deco-inchies. Work from the middle of the inchie out to the edge with the brush, this helps you to smooth the serviette out nicely. Use very soft strokes so that you do not rip the serviette.

Gonis Maxi Inchies DIY

6, 7. Repeat the same process as numbers 3-5 for the Maxi-Inchies*
Allow all your pieces to dry.

8. Glue the Deco-Inchies* onto the backgrounds (Maxi-Inchies*) and decorate with DekoPointers*
Allow to dry again and then punch holes in the pieces at the tops of both and at the bottom of one of them. Thread some Raffia through the holes and tie to join.

And there you have it. 8 Easy steps to create a sweet wall-hanging.
