Hanging Flower Wall Directions
Step 1: Gather supplies! Choose your featured flower(s) and think through what you will hang your hanging flowers backdrop from. This could be anything from an existing structure like a gazebo to a branch or rod you hang on a wall. There is TONS of creative freedom in this project, so feel free to make it totally your vibe!
Step 2: Measure (and remeasure) your designated space for your DIY hanging flower backdrop. Use your measurements to give you an idea of the amount of supplies you’ll need.
Step 3: Trim your flower stems. Leave enough stem to ensure that the flower bloom stays intact. (Note: the number of flowers needed will vary with the size of your backdrop)
Step 4: Using the needle and fishing line, begin stringing flowers on the fishing line. Tie a knot in the line where you want the flower to “sit” when it is hung. If you are using a variety of flowers, remember to alternate the types of flowers on each strand. (Note: If the flower slips over the knot in the fishing line, add a small bead in the knot) The frequency of flowers on your strands is totally up to you.
Step 5: When your desired number of flower strands are complete, affix them to the rod/branch or structure that will feature your DIY hanging flowers backdrop.
Step 6: Make final adjustments!
Step 7: Take the first selfie in front of your totally fab hanging flower backdrop DIY!
