DIY: Simple Floral Art Piece


Flower arrangement

As I say over drinks with my best friend, it’s been too long!  I apologize for my lack of blogging the past few weeks.  I have been battling health issues along with increased work responsibilities.  Over the weekend I thought I’d battle something other than my migraines, and focus on my kitchen walls.  I love decorating, and have spent a good amount of time filling my space with unique pieces, but my kitchen walls have been left blank for long enough.

I took a trip to Joann Fabrics for some creative inspiration.  I found my inspiration at the very first aisle of the store.  There in front of me were tons of beautiful fake flowers.  I have never been a fan of synthetic flowers personally, but these faux flowers were incredibly realistic.  I chose my favorite stems and made a quick bouquet there in aisle one.  With my flowers in hand I thought, “Now what?” I knew I needed to figure out a way to hang this arrangement on my kitchen wall.  I walked up and down the aisles looking for something circular.  I wanted something in the shape of a reef so that I could hang it up on a wall. There were a lot of materials to choose from, but I found a medium sized wooden ring which I knew would work just fine.  It turns out this wooden ring was a wood quilt hoop.  Next, I found some green stem wire, and chose the green closest to the color of the stems I had chosen earlier.  The stem wire would be used to hold the bouquet together.  To purchase green wire stems online visit here.  All of these materials were reasonably priced, and I got everything for just $22.  Once I had everything I needed a headed home to make my creation.

To create this wall arrangement you will need:

  • Your selected synthetic flowers
  • Green stem wire
  • 1 medium sized wood quilt hoop
  • A nail and hammer for hanging

DIY Flower Arrangement

Floral Wall Arrangement Steps:

  • Create your arrangement
  • Use your green wire stems to bind the arrangement together.
  • To do this take your green wire stem and wrap it around all fake stems.  I used four wire stems to complete this.
  • Take your wood quilt hoop and place it behind your arrangement.
  • Take a wire stem and wrap it through the quilt ring and around the stems binding the stems to the wooden ring
  • Place the nail on the desired place on your wall
  • Hang your floral bouquet

This DIY project was much easier than most, and now my kitchen is a happier place.  If you have any questions about how I made this arrangement feel free to contact me here.  Thanks for being patient with me as I battle my migraines.  Hope you enjoyed this post, and have a great week!
