Step 1:
Using a pencil, you will mark 6 spots on your dowel: 1″, 4″, 4.5″, 7.5″, 8″, 11″. Each necklace will have two hooks to hang within a of 3 inches wide.

Step 2:

On the pencil marks, use your hammer and small nail to create a shallow hole. This will create a small groove just big enough to begin twisting your screw hooks inside. Be sure to use something sturdy to secure your dowel while hammering. I used my knee to hold down the dowel while GENTLY hitting the hammer to the nail. Do not bang the hammer too hard or you will sever the dowel. Carefully twist your hooks into place. The deeper your hook twists into the groove, the more difficult it will be to turn. TIP: Use the claw on the backside of your hammer head to twist the screws in the place.


Step 3:
Once you have twisted all your hooks in place, your dowels should appear as the picture below.
Step 4:
Using your Elmer’s craft glue, begin applying moss to your dowel. Use your fingers to secure the moss in place, adding moss throughout so that your dowel is evenly covered. Leave about a half inch of space at the end of each dowel uncovered for your rope.
Step 5:
Cut your faux flowers from their branches with a wire cutter. Then adhere your flowers sporadically across the moss-covered dowel using small dabs of hot glue.

Step 6:

Finally, apply hot glue to the ends of your dowels (see image below) and carefully wrap your rope around the dowel being sure to pay attention to the direction of your hooks. Once your rope has been secured, add moss on top of the rope and at the ends of the dowel so that your hanger is completely covered.


Allow your hanger to dry for about fifteen minutes and you’re all done!
