Floral wrapping paper DIY clothes rack
I used to decorate a piece of wrapping paper leftover from my birthday, this DIY clothes rack – with a little Mod-hodgepodge and spray paint too!
But I just couldn’t help. You can see the wrapping paper on my DIY wardrobe above, and I think understand, you will probably why I love it so much. I think you’ll also love that I have this for only $5. Read on to see how I did it.

spray bottle (I bet you have been wondering about this)
So, here is the interface that I started with. I don’t own a motel, nor do I want to be, my apartment is not considered so . . . this requires a Face-Lifting. I got it from Hobby Lobby for less than $5. If you have a HL close by, it’s ideal for these kind of deals!
you Remove the hardware from your rack and use the painter ’s tape to tape off the ends of the hooks. Spray paint the whole thing and let dry. Note that I painted the front that says “motel” is my paper white as the thin.
you measure the front of your sign and cut the gift wrapping paper accordingly. Make sure it fits and trim if needed.
This is where the bottle comes in. This type of paper will wrinkle BADLY (because it is so thin) if you don’t wet it first. So you use the spray bottle to mist the paper until it’s just wet. Don’t it or is ittear easily enjoy.br> Add a medium layer of Mod-pick-and-mix to the front of your rack, and place the paper carefully.
Lead you to the brayer back and forth, smoothing out the paper, really carefully. If you are too rough or go over the paper too many times, you can rip, if it’s as thin as mine. Let your DIY-wardrobe to dry for 15 – 20 minutes (or until you will be completely dry, since the paper was wet).
Now you can give the wardrobe a last layer of Mod-hodgepodge (or three) and let it dry. Again, the color build be careful not to chip on your rack.
you Hang your new DIY wardrobe and put a few light coats on them, to ensure that it’s stable. Then go to town hanging all sorts of junk off of the hooks like I did.
