Have you seen the cool looking wall flowers that Young House Love put in their guest room? I loved them from the second I saw them, but I wasn't so sure I wanted to drop some dough for them.
Enter the d.i.y. solution: Billie Monster, an amazing artist and designer, created this great template for paper wall flowers to add some dimension to the walls, and the best part is it is super inexpensive! No buying the flowers from some company - you can do it yourself! Billie Monster also has tons of other great stuff on her blog, so go check it out. You will not be disappointed.
Using her template, I came up with this. It took less than 45 minutes from start to finish. I like a quick project. :)
Billie Monster has great instructions for making these as well as the template she created. I used double-sided tape to attach mine to the wall. It's nice in case you want to move them around as you hang them.
I also have a tip about making the cutting process easier. I was trying to think of how to cut several flowers at once, and I wanted to do the equivalent of pinning layers of fabric together. Stack 3 pieces of scrapbook paper together, clip the binders to the sides to secure the paper together, trace the templates onto the paper, and then cut out the flowers. Boom! You have 3x the flowers. haha!
Thanks for looking!
This is totally unrelated, but here is a pic of my fur children (just had to get it in because it has been a while since I've shared their sweet faces with you.)
Yes, they were sitting on the hubs as he was lying on the couch (hehe). You would think they believe they own us, not the other way around.
They'd be right. ;)
