Floating Wooden Clouds

Ok, so I’ve had these wooden clouds for months. My husband made them for me a while ago, but I never got around to using them. Until now, finally!!! I am very slowly becoming more and more of a minimalist. I am attracted to very clean and simple design elements for my home and so I think this DIY is fitting. 

Floating Wooden Clouds

What you will need:

Plywood

Cloud outline (print from web or hand draw)

Pencil

Scroll saw 

Sand paper

Hot glue gun

Tacs

Floating Wooden Clouds

Firstly, my husband always does the hardest part. So don’t be afraid to ask someone to lend a hand if you need it! Otherwise, if you can work some machinery – good for you!! First, trace your cloud onto the plywood. Then carefully cut out your clouds using the scroll saw (please be careful!). Once you have your clouds cut out, sand the sides until smooth and wipe clean. You can choose to paint your clouds some fun colors and patterns. I personally love the wood untouched and kept at it’s natural form. Take your hot glue gun and and put a good glob at the back of each cloud in the center. Press the tac firmly into the hot glue until it has dried completely. Repeat with other wooden clouds. Now, find somewhere fun to display them!

I find the tacs are quite reliable and I’ve had no problems pushing them into the wall without them detaching from the wood. I had to think about where I wanted them and play around with arrangements before making any permanent holes in the wall. If you hang them up, but hate how they look don’t worry about the holes. I’ve done some research and found that white soap is suppose to do the trick – crazy, right?!

I love these wooden clouds! They are so whimsical and will add a playful touch to any room! I think the clean wood gives this DIY modern appeal, so it won’t look too child-like. I’ve seen a lot of cloud themed pieces for nurseries, but I wanted something for our home without it looking out of place.

    hi lidy, absolutely great Idea! I will copy this instantly and do a little electrical upgrade, so the clouds give a minimal indirect light on the wall… the question is: blue or white light-color? :)
