Read along as we transform this Dollar Tree plunger and mop into beautiful diy BOHO wall art!
This diy inspiration came from my teen daughter. She had been surfing the Internet for Boho style wall art. Everything she could find ranged from $40 and up, it was then she decided to challenge herself and come up with an idea to make her own Boho wall art for less than $10.
To my surprise she did better than that, the total cost for the materials was $3. Can you believe that? A gorgeous, chic, addition to her room and for only $3. Keep reading to see our step by step tutorial on how to create this DIY DOLLAR TREE BOHO HANGER!

The items you’ll need for this diy project are as followed:
Plunger from dollar tree
Hot glue gun
Mop head from dollar tree. (yarn, jute or lace.) Can also be used.
Succulents or greenery (Optional)
Step 1. Remove the handle from the plunger, this will be your hanger. You do not need to cut it, but that is an option if you desire a smaller hanger. The measurement for the handle I purchased was 17 inches.
Step 2. Get your mop head! I purchased this one from the Dollar Tree, but if you have scrap yarn, jute or other material you can use that too. If you go with using the mop head, one will be enough. The other material amounts vary.
Step 3. Remove the plastic piece from the mop head. I used wire cutters, but heavy duty scissors will work fine. The pictures above show the plastic piece and where to cut.
Step 4. Unravel the mop head. I cut my first 6 strips to 40 inches.
Step 5. To create the pieces to tie onto the rod, I pulled two pieces of the fabric underneath. You can see I was holding it with my fingertips in order to create a loop.
Step 6. Next, I placed two sections of the fabric on each side of the centerpieces.
Each of the pieces measured about 37 inches.
Step 7. (OPTIONAL) Add your accessories! I added a few pieces of Jute with wood beads tied onto them. For an added touch, I also tied in some feathers in. All of these features are optional, let your imagination soar.
Step 8. (OPTIONAL) Taking the jute string, I strung on 28 wood beads. Originally, I was going to use this to hang from the top. After looking at it, I decided I liked it strung across the fabric instead.
Step 9. (OPTIONAL) More accessories! I cut 48 inches of the fabric, twisted it and added a different shape of wood beads. I made a total of 5 beads to go across the top for a sleeker Boho look.
Now that the basic art structure is complete, you can leave as is, or you can add some personal touches as you see below. My daughter liked adding greenery to her wall art across the top, I think it was a nice touch.
This was a super fun DIY project for both my daughter and myself. We enjoyed adding our own touches to it, to really make it our own design.
