Sunflower Wall Pocket

An easy way to have a custom-made welcome basket for your door is to take a plain wall vase and decorate it with your favorite photos or artwork. If you're looking for homemade wall art, this Sunflower Wall Pocket is a great one-night project. To complete this project, you can use a photo from a magazine and embellish it with beads, tape, and thread. DIY wall art can help you create a more formal feel in your home and add a touch of color to an otherwise drab space. Use items you have at home to give this project a personalized touch - you'll love the results.
