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
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!
