SUN WALL HANGING


A colorful sun wall hanging is mounted above a desk with a pencil holder and book.

Dark days of winter getting you down? Bring in the daylight with a printable DIY sun wall hanging. Easy to make, I hung mine on a bulletin board next to my desk as a reminder that spring is around the corner.
