Friends, I am so excited to share with you all how I made this beautiful farmhouse floral wood pocket. If you’re a fan of farmhouse decor and love a good DIY project, then this farmhouse floral wood pocket is a must-try! Using just an inexpensive scrap wood block, some cute florals and a few common craft supplies you may already have on hand, and a piece from our farmhouse embellishment pack, you can easily create a stunning piece of decor that looks like it came straight from a craft store.

What’s great about this DIY project is that you can easily change it up for every season by swapping out the florals or embellishments. It’s simple to create but looks absolutely gorgeous once finished. Trust me, this is one project you’ll want to try – it’s fun, easy, and the end result is simply stunning! Here’s how to create this farmhouse DIY project:

Materials Needed:

  • Scrap Wood Block
  • Burlap Kitchen Farmhouse Embellishment Pack (Find it HERE) 
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
  • Wood Stain
  • Black Paint
  • Paintbrushes and/or sponges to apply paint and stain 
  • Florals of your liking to stuff pocket
  • Material of your liking to create pocket
  • Burlap for trim around material pocket

Step 1.  Using an old block of scrap wood, take a material of your liking and wrap it around the bottom half of the scrap wood block.  

Take scrap wood block and wrap a piece of material around the bottom half of the block so that the ends of the piece of material meet together at the back of the block and overlap just a tiny bit.

Step 2.  Use hot glue to secure the piece of material onto the back of the wood block where the material meets (the material should overlap just a little).  Then, fold up any remaining material at the bottom of the block like a present, making sure it is tight and neat so that the wood block will stand up by itself, and use hot glue to secure it to the back of the wood block.  Allow to dry.  Do not glue the material onto the front of the block, only secure it to the back of the block because you want to create a material pocket on the front of the block to later add your florals down into. 

Secure the material to the back of the block only using hot glue. Do not glue front of block as you want to create a pocket to stuff florals into. Then, wrap up any excess ,material neatly and tightly like a present, and then secure it onto the back of the wood block. Wood block should be able to stand on its own. Allow to dry.

Step 3.  Next, cut a piece of burlap trim big enough to go around the top of the material.  Secure the burlap trim into place onto the back of the block using hot glue.  Allow to dry.

Step 4.  Using our farmhouse embellishment pack (available for purchase on our online shop), take the piece that says “farmhouse” and stain it.  Allow this piece to dry. Then, paint the border piece that goes with the “farmhouse” piece black and allow it to dry. Once this border piece is dry, take a sanding block over it. 

Using our farmhouse embellishment pack, take the "farmhouse" piece of wood and apply stain to it, then allow to dry. Next, take the frame piece to the "farmhouse" piece and paint it black. Allow it to dry, then take a sanding block over it.

Step 5.  Next, using some lavender greenery ( I believe I purchased these from Dollar Tree), shove the stems of the greenery down into the front pocket on the wood block.  Then, add some dried flowers, or whatever florals of your liking, down into the pocket.

Step 6.  Take the farmhouse and border/frame pieces and use hot glue to secure them over the front center of the material pocket. Allow to dry and enjoy!
