I’ve been wanting to change up the decor behind my bed for a while. I looked into wallpaper and it was SO expensive. This is a cheap solution that also took me less than 30 minutes to put together. The flowers cost me about $18, however, I had to buy a new glue gun because I seriously always seem to misplace mine. I’ve probably spent over $100 at Michael’s Craft Store on glue guns alone *cries*. Anyways, let’s start crafting!
You will need:
- At least 40 individual flowers
- A glue gun
- Command Hooks
- Wire Cutters(I used scissors because I did not have wire cutters and had to bend the wire until it broke from the stem)
First, take the wire cutters and clip the flowers. Most flower bunches have wire to hold the stem up. Organize the flowers in a pattern that you like. It helps to visualize it before you glue it all together. Next, take your glue gun and put a dab of glue in the of a flower. Stick the stem of another flower to the flower. You may have to hold it for a few seconds to make sure it doesn’t fall apart. I made some strands a bit longer than others because I like a more natural look. Take your thread and tie a knot around the top flower. Make a loop with the leftover string so you can hook it onto command hooks. Stick the command hooks in a line on your wall. You may want smaller command hooks. I used these because I already had them up. Another option you have is to turn the flowers upside down for a little bit of a different look!
And there you have it! It was such a simple DIY and when my husband say it he was really impressed. I love the clean look and may even add more strands later!
