This gorgeous flower wall installation is my favorite project for baby girl’s nursery so far! It was so easy that I kinda feel bad even calling it a DIY that is worthy of a tutorial, but nevertheless, here it is! If you have $50 and one hour, you can create this DIY Flower Wall Installation too!
Step One: Choose your flowers.
This is going to sound crazy, but I think that cheap faux flowers work better for this project. This is because you’ll be pulling them all apart anyway. I think cheaper ones bust apart easier than high quality (a.k.a. expensive!) faux flowers would! I got mine at Wal Mart and they worked like a charm.
The number of flowers that you’ll need will depend on the type of flower wall installation that you want to create, but I will say that you’ll need more than you think. Here is what I used:
Step Two: Pull flowers apart.
Again, cheapies work well for this! For all of the flowers that I purchased, the buds/blooms of each just pulled right off of the stems. Pull everything off of the main stems, including the leaves because those are great fillers at the end.
Trim any pointy ends on the back of the flowers – the base of the buds – that will prevent the flower bud from laying flat (for the most part) against the wall.
Step Three: Create your basic layout.
I was planning to add this flower wall installation to either side of a piece of artwork that will hang above the crib, so first I hung the picture where I knew it would be centered and the correct height above the crib.
Next, I took the artwork down and laid it on the floor. I divided up the blooms evenly between each side of the artwork and arranged them as I wanted to see them on the wall.
Step Four: Pin your flowers to the wall.
I hung the artwork back up, and started pinning the flowers to the wall using good ol’ fashioned thumbtacks. No tools required!
Step Five: Add your filler.
Once you’ve pinned all of the flowers to the wall, try not to have an anxiety attack about all the holes you’ve just put in the wall, and go back and add your “filler”. The filler is all of the leaves and greenery (anything other than the flower buds) that you pulled off of the flower stems.
The filler gives the flower wall installation a nice finished look.
Step Six: Stand back and enjoy your masterpiece!
This flower wall installation was so easy and could be done a million different ways to fit all kinds of décor. It would also make a great photo backdrop! I just love it in this nursery and am so happy with the way it turned out.
