|| DIY || Fake Flower Wall on a Budget!


My little sister got married in May {YAY!} and I had been looking forward to planning her bridal shower for yearsssss. Florals are SO "in" right now, so we decided we would have a floral theme! I had been pinning all these STUNNING floral walls but for the size and look I was going for, they were expensive to rent/purchase...I was certain I could make one for less expensive and also be able to

re-use it for other events!

I bought 8 foam boards at the Dollar Tree for $1 each and I purchased the flowers in bulk on amazon (which I've linked below with my affiliate links for your convenience)! When complete, You can easy mount the floral wall up on a wall with masking tape, but we weren't allowed to hang anything at the venue so I used a pipe and drape from amazon.

Things you'll need for the flower wall:

Glue Gun

Roses

Large Carnations

Paper Flowers (DIY HERE)

Foam Boards

(# depends on how large you want your final product to be)

Clear Packing Tape & Scissors

Step 1

I started out by taping 6 foam boards together (2 wide x 3 long). I didn't add the final 2 panels at the bottom until we arrived at the venue, for transportation reasons : )

Step 2

Using the plastic tip on the flower head, I poked a bunch of holes randomly all over the taped boards to make inserting/gluing the flowers easier. If the flowers you use don't have the plastic piece, that's even easier! Just hot glue right onto the board.

Step 3

Next, start putting a generous circle of hot glue around a few holes in the board at a time (to make the process quicker) and press the different variations of flowers into the holes. I pushed on each flower head for about 3 seconds to make sure they were stuck in the foam board well. Continue this step until you are happy with the amount of flowers on your wall!

THAT'S IT!

It took me a few hours

(I worked on this for small increments of time over two months because....3 kids under 5....)

from start to finish and I couldn't have been happier with the finished product! I received so many compliments on it and people couldn't believe I made it for around $100!
