How To Make A Flower Wall

How to make a flower wall , PINK FLOWER WALL

Flower walls! Aren’t they just beautiful?! A flower wall for those of you wondering is basically just a wall with loads of flowers on it. I’ve wanted one since I first saw it. Well to be more specific, ever since I visited Elan Cafe. ( Check out my post on Elan Cafe to see the flowerwall > here <). I just kept thinking about how lovely it would look if I had one at home.

So, when I start to really like things that I come across, I have a habit of wanting to make one too. For Example, the time I fell for a feathered lampshade. Check out how I made one >here<. And that’s what happened with the flower wall.

I started by researching different ways of making it. There was a tutorial I came across where they used metal mesh to feed the stems of the flowers through. But I decided not to go with that idea when I found a way of making it using items I had at home.

I saw a few tutorials where they used a cardboard box, fabric and a glue gun and because I had all of them at home, I decided to go with that way of making it. Here’s how I made it.

What you’ll need:

  1. Fake flowers
  2. Large piece of fabric
  3. Glue gun
  4. Fabric scissors
  5. Strong cello tape/duck tape
  6. Staple gun
  7. Cardboard box

How to make a flower wall, WHAT YOU NEED

Step 1: You’ll want to start by taping all of the bendy parts of your cardboard box. This will make it more sturdy so the flower wall won’t bend later on.

Step 2: Get all of your bunches of flowers and pull the flower heads and leaves off the stems. (I used 7 bunches of flowers to fill it up. My cardboard was 110cm by 59cm and 7 bunches of peonies were enough. Depending on what type you flowers you get and how big they are, how many bunches you may need will vary.)

Step 3: Lay your fabric down flat and place your cardboard on top.

Step 4: Cut the fabric down to the size of your cardboard leaving enough space to fold the fabric over.

Step 5: Fold the fabric over your cardboard and staple it down using your staple gun. Staple it down until it is tight and secure.

Step 6:  Turn your cardboard over and start placing the flowers on top. Once you are happy with the placement, glue them down with your glue gun.

Step 7: Once you have glued most of the flowers on, start to add the leaves. Any extra flowers or leaves can be used to fill in the gaps.

Step 8: Add more glue to the flowers that aren’t secure and then you are done!

This is how my flower wall turned out. I liked having leaves in between my flowers as it makes it look more realistic but you can make it however you prefer. If you’d like to see a video tutorial of how I made it, check out the video below! Hope you enjoy!

      Hi Dina,

      The fake flowers are from ebay. If you type in faux peonies or fake peonies on ebay they should come up.
