DIY Floral Wall Decor | Same Look For Less Money
Do you want to see how I made this beautiful floral wall décor for under $15? I created a video where you can see the step-by-step, so click below to watch how easy it was to create.
I have been seeing a lot of these 3-dimensional floral wall art pieces in home décor stores. Some of the flowers are created with paper or felt, others with clay or paper mache. But today I am going to keep this DIY as simple and easy as possible and I will be using artificial flowers.
I love simple elegance, so I did a white on white color scheme for this floral décor art piece. But you can take the examples I’m going to show you as inspiration or change the color scheme up however you want to fit whatever matches your home décor.
I saw so many varieties of this floral wall décor concept, so here are a few that inspired me and hopefully will inspire you too.
The first example is from Pottery Barn and it is a 3 dimensional succulent wall art. This is $269! It is made with artificial succulent flowers and also would be very inexpensive to recreate.
The next one is also succulent inspired but is using paper flowers. It’s from World Market and goes for $130. This one would also be very inexpensive to recreate, but would take more time and you may need a paper cutting machine to get all those flowers hand made. And those paper cutting machines are expensive!
I saw another similar example, but much smaller. It is white on white and made from paper. It was on Etsy for $60.
And then this one I found at my local Home Goods for $60 as well. The white on white really appealed to me and I like how this one felt less structured and a little more organic, so I tried to work some of that into my creation.
I love saving money and keeping it simple, so here is what you will need, so you can create your very own floral wall art.
I went to Dollar Tree to find these really pretty white and off white flowers. I got 12 of them. The savings was really great because just a single white rose at Michaels or Hobby Lobby was $6! I got several shades of white and offwhite because I wanted to do an ombre type of effect and just add some interest to the whole piece.
Michaels had 16x20 canvases for sale and they came in a pack of 2 for $5. So the one canvas I used was only $2.50 which is a really good deal! I did look at Dollar Tree for canvases, but they only had really small ones.
You will also need a good pair of scissors and a good hot glue gun. And that is it! That is all you need to make this floral wall art, so let’s get going into the tutorial.
First, I removed all the flowers from the stems. I kept them color coded as I went so everything would already be organized for putting together the ombre fade.
Since you will want to have the flowers as close to the canvas as possible, you want to trim the stems from the bottom. Be careful not to trim too closely though because then the flowers could come apart. Trimming the stem will also make the area at the bottom able to get more glue so it adheres better to the canvas.
Next, I played around with the layout of the flowers before glueing them down. I mixed in some of the closed roses with the open roses to vary the height. I put the larger roses at the bottom and then the smaller ones that would do the slow fade at the top. Once I had a good idea of where everything was going, it was time to glue. Don’t be skimpy with the glue gun, really put a good amount.
When I got near the top I wanted to do the flowers in a more organic fashion so I tested what looked best before glueing them down. I have them scattered but did try to have some sort or system, to where it would look balanced.
And here is the finished product. I am happy with the way it came out and will be putting this in my guest room. I also think it would be so sweet in a little girls room. It is just so elegant and I love how it can be customized so you can create one to match whatever colors you have in your home.
