Recently, I moved into a new apartment for the school year. I seriously am in LOVE. Having my own space completely done just how I want it is soooo nice.
I wanted to take this new, fresh room and run with it. I had a few different ideas on how I wanted to decorate, but I decided to go with a more feminine/simplistic feel.
Cue the flower wall:
It’s my favorite piece in my room, and it ended up being super simple to make. It only took me about an hour, give or take a few minutes. I thought I would show you how I created it, in case you wanted to spice up your room with one too!
DIY Flower Wall
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Fishing line (you don’t need much, just enough to hang them from the top)
- Command Strip Hooks
- Fake flowers!! I got mine from Michaels, and I made sure I had enough for 5 strands, with 9 flowers on each. (P.S. when you get them, make sure you use the coupons they have online. It made a $65+ project into a $30 one.)
- Pliers with wire cutters (to separate flowers from the rest of the bouquet)
- Remove all the flowers from their bouquets with the wire cutters. Make sure you’re cutting as close to the bottom as possible, because you need the stems!
- Organize your flowers into groups. I measured, and 9 flowers per strand was the right amount for the space I was hanging them up in. I tried to create a good mix, keeping some baby’s breath in between roses, so that it would look more cohesive. Line them up in any order, and then adjust accordingly!
- With your hot glue gun, put a dab on the end of your first flower’s stem. Stick that right into the middle of the top of the next one. Hold it until the glue is dry. You may need to glue some petals of the 2nd flower around the first’s stem to fully secure it.
- Repeat the last step until you’ve finished each of your strands.
- Place your command hooks evenly apart on your wall.
- Tie your fishing line underneath the base of your first flower, and then secure it to the command hook.
Seriously, it’s that simple. This flower wall is such a unique piece for your space, and I love the feminine vibe that it gives off. Let me know if you decide to try this yourself, I would LOVE to see. 🙂
