Floral Wall Art DIY

Tuesday

This wall has been driving me crazy since the day we moved in. It connects to our kitchen and living room, so it proves to be an awkward wall to decorate. Ten months later, I've finally gotten something on the wall. This project cost me only about $10.00 to make and is the perfect subtly to connecting the two rooms.


You'll need: one or two bouquets of flowers, scissors, wax paper, book pages (I picked up some old, stained books from the thrift store), hot glue gun, masking tape.

Begin by cutting the stems of the flowers and placing them between two sheets of wax paper. Store under a flat surface for one week, or until flowers are completely dried out. Next, hot glue bunches of flowers to ripped out book pages and make a collage on the wall. I attached mine to the wall with masking tape, but wooden push pins would be a great alternative.

Since spring is still proving to be far away for us, filling this wall with flowers is the perfect dose of outdoors I need to get me through the rest of this winter madness.

  4. I'm obsessed with this idea. It gives such a old encyclopedia/academic look to the walls without having to search for vintage prints or actual encyclopedias. Definitely definitely doing this.

  17. This is a really wonderful idea! I have to do this when I have more time on my hands. Would parchment paper work instead of wax paper?

  29. I love the naturalness of your concept! But the annoying OCD part of me wanted to flatten down the pages more!!!!! Sigh! The way it is arranged across the wall appeals to me, like petals blowing in the wind. I want to adapt your concept to suit my style. Thankyou!

  31. If I had this wall, I'd find a thrift shop hutch, chalk paint it and fill it with colorful, china, thrift shop collectibles etc. IF ONLY I had an empty wall.....http://smallhouseunderbigsky.wordpress.com
