- Wood shadowbox

- Serrated knife
- Paint brush
Start by painting the shadowbox with a few coats of paint. Remember the back will be covered by moss so you can leave it unpainted. Allow to dry in between coats. Paint until you get complete coverage.
Set that aside to dry and begin working on your pot hangers. Cut four strips of yarn to equal lengths.
Fold in half and gather at the top and tie one knot as shown below.
Tie smaller knots with two strands each. This will be around the top of your pot.
Use your pot to get the approximate location of the next knot. Knot together so that it will rest on the bottom center of your pot.
Add in your pot and check location. You can undo and retie as many times as you like to get this correct. It should look like the image below once completed.
In the pot, you will want to add in some flowers. Start by cutting a Styrofoam ball with a serrated knife to fit the pot.
Then use hot glue to add Petaloo flowers all over as shown below.
Cover the back of your painted shadow box with moss once the box is dry. Just cut the moss mat with scissors then peel and stick to the back surface.
You will want to continue and make three of the pot hangers that were made above. They will need to be different lengths to fit in your shadowbox. Untie and redo your knots as many times as needed to get the perfect arrangement.
Use hot glue to secure the knots in the top of the shadowbox. Use scissors to trim the excess yarn at the bottom if needed.
Display your DIY spring decor in any room that you want. This would be perfect on a porch, patio, or even a sun room.
