Flower Wall2We are crushing on this DIY “success”!  When one of our very own Event Coordinators tied the knot this spring, the paper flower wall was one of our favorite decor features.  As anyone who has endeavored into the “seemingly-easy-but-half-way-through-with-glue-in-places-it-should-never-be” project knows…craft projects can be tricky.  This paper flower wall, however, is not one of those notorious “Pinterest Fails”.

With help from some friends, craft supplies, and a few bottles of wine (after all, what’s a craft night without a little vino)…she achieved Paper Flower Wall success.  For her wedding reception, our bride used the flower wall as a backdrop for her monochromatic candy bar.  Flower Wall3It would also have made a lovely background for the cake table, sweetheart table, or photo booth.  And, the design options are endless…a collection of vintage scrapbooking paper would have provided an entirely different design element and feel.  For non-wedding related occasions like a festive birthday party or casual backyard gathering, it easily could have been constructed with a variety of colored papers instead of all white.  (We might be a little biased towards the monochromatic color scheme. It adds impact and elegance.)

Supplies Needed:
Paper, Cardstock, Tissue Paper, Coffee Filters, Poster board (White)
One large styrofoam board
White duck tape, Glue dots, hot glue gun
