What says spring more than flowers?! I saw this gorgeous picture the other day of some wall art featuring 3d paper flowers. It was from Target and you could buy the flowers in a pack of 4 for $7.00. Pff, I could totally make that! I ain’t paying $100 for something I could make myself. Well after days of cutting flowers, rolling petals, gluing, gluing and gluing some more that pack of 4 for $7.00 started sounding pretty reasonable. If you are as cheap crazy as me and want to try to make your own DIY paper flower wall art, look no further! Follow the tutorial of what I did!
I put double sided adhesive on the back of the flowers. I just took one flower at a time from my pre made arrangement and stuck it on with the double sided adhesive. That way I already had the arrangement laid out and it was easy to follow. I didn’t want it to be permanent because I wanted to be able to use the flowers later. This worked fine for a few days but then the double sided adhesive wasn’t strong enough and some of the flowers started falling down. I am going to try hot glue and see how that does.
