DIY Flower Shadow Box Wall Art

This flower box wall art came about as a total accident. I had a spice/curio cabinet that was sitting around. I had some brightly colored flowers left over from when I used to decorate tables at craft fairs.  Previously I had used the flowers in a vase, with some white pebbles. I liked the idea of continuing to use the flowers at shows and fairs, but scattering them around loose. I also thought I could use the cabinet to display more valuable pieces. However, I had nowhere to store either. That’s how my flower box wall art DIY was born…

Flower Box Wall Art – You Need:

Spice Cabinet (if you’re trying to go frugal, look for one at a flea market or yard sale. If not, you can buy one here.)

Fake Flowers, to match your decor

Wire Cutters

Flower Box Wall Art – Instructions:

Using wire cutters, cut off your stems leaving about an inch below the flowers, so they can sit properly.

Arrange the flowers on the shelves of the cabinet… and replace the cover. It’s that simple! You now have your completed flower box wall art!

You can hang this on the wall using the hardware most of these cabinets will come with. Since I rent, and I prefer not to put too many holes in our walls, I placed mine against the backs plash of my kitchen counter. This flower box wall art is also great for mantels, sideboards, and any other surface that can use a splash of color! Choose colors and styles that fit the theme you want, that match your decor, and that create a mood appropriate for that setting. The best part is, that the largest investment in this project – the curio cabinet – stays intact. You can switch it up whenever you want, and give it a new job without too much work. Enjoy your flower box wall art and happy decorating!
