My daughter's room is coming along...slowly but surely. I put the finishing touches on her kitchen that my dad (and husband and I) made...so there are pictures to come!
I saw these Umbra Wall Flowers about a year ago on another craft blog and have loved them ever since. I knew I always wanted them for our daughter's room...but I wanted the white ones and her walls at our old place were white so it didn't seem like a good combination at the time.
Now that we have moved and we have lovely tan walls through out, I got online to order some of these flowers...but when I saw that 25 of them were $20...I decided to rethink the situation.
So, one half sheet of white posterboard later...I had 20 of my own wall flowers:
I love them so much! I could seriously make about a hundred more and put them everywhere. Everywhere.
I went with just plain white since my daughter's room is a little more modern and streamlined, but the possibilities are endless with this project. I also liked the texture of the posterboard since I was doing all one color. I made the the flowers so that the matte side of the posterboard was showing.
On the larger flowers, I used a small glue stick to curl the edges and I used a pen on the smaller flowers.
Also, since I didn't want to add another 20 holes to the walls that we rent...I just stuck them on with scotch tape that I rolled into loops. They have been on for a week and haven't budged. Plus, it's been nice to move them around wherever I want.
I think my favorite part of this project is the price. You can't beat $.25! I mean...you probably have that down the seat of your couch...along with some raisins and puzzle pieces if you live in our house:)
