How To Make Wall Hanging

Step 2: Pick the right board/frame
Choose one with any shapes you like for cardboard, wooden boards, or photo frames (oval, rectangle, circle…). Recommended size to use with custom text is 20x30cm, or if you don’t want to make a board with text, it’s suggested to use a size of 15x20cm.
However, with small animal heads like my bears, you can still write your name on a small board (15x20cm) as the following oval sample
In this tutorial, I choose using cardboard because that’s a material that you can easy to find anywhere in your house.
How to cut a perfect circle board? It’s easy. Go to your kitchen, pick a dish that’s suitable for the size of a stuffed animal, then place it onto the cardboard, and use a pencil to draw the circle following the boundary of the dish.

Perfect! Now it’s time to cut.
Step 3: Cut the right colored paper
By using colored paper as the background of the board or inner frame, the finished wall hanging would be more elegant and beautiful.
So once you determine which board/frame shape you will use, cut a preferred colored paper and fit with the shape.

Step 4: Write Your Text
To emphasize or make it more personalized, add your own text to colored paper. It could be your name, nickname, or any fun or motivational quotes,… that you love.
Determine the area for writing text and placing the animal head then use a pencil to mark appropriate points.
Use a marker to write your text, check out some recommended quotes below:
- Be fun
- Be happy
- Be calm
- Be nice
- Be elegant
- Be brave
- Be strong
Step 5: Stick all together
Ok fine! It’s time to stick all to the cardboard.
Firstly, stick the colored paper to cardboard.
Use a glue gun, and apply glue to the position in which the animal head should be glued. (or on the surface of the mounting part of the head)
Carefully and slowly apply the head over the cardboard.
Step 6: Hang it
Wait 2 minutes for the glue to get dry. And it’s ready to hang now.
