My favorite of all wall hangings is traditional Rajasthani ones. Specially, the string decorations are absolutely beautiful and comes in various designs and sizes. They add so much warmth, color and most important festive feel 🙂
Well, it is easy buy stuff from India, but I was itching for a project and decided to “DIY” and here is the result – a cute and traditional flower string door/wall hanging 🙂
Aren’t they cute and colorful. They are about 24 inches (2ft) in length and add color and style to any room.
Well, before initiating this project, I was looking at clay options to make the flowers. The ideal pick was polymer clay as it is light and break resistant. This time I wanted to go for an inexpensive option.
After some search, I found this recipe to make clay at home. That was super exciting. It is easy-to- make, easy- to-work, inexpensive and can be used in variety of projects.
I couldn’t wait to get started and bought glue from dollar tree and corn starch from local grocery store for less than $3.

Lace or string of your choice
How to make Door/wall hangings from homemade clay
Step 1 : Condition the clay and roll it out until it is 1/8th inch thick approx. Here i used a fondant cutter for flowers. Choose a cutter of your choice and make 10-12 flowers.
Step 2 : Let the flowers dry overnight. Once dry they are very light, unbreakable and almost look like resin. Color the flowers with acrylic paint and glue a decorative mirror in the center.
Step 3: Take a string or decorative lace and few wooden beads. I added random and used multi colored beads. Once you add couple of beads glue the painted flower like shown above.
Once you string beads and glue flowers add a decorative bell and you have beautiful string wall hanging decor ready to use 🙂
