DIY: Hanging Flower Garland

Major wall envy.

 

A branch, twine and your favorite bouquet is all you need to create this bold + chic floral backdrop.

A pretty easy DIY- but be prepared to carve out some time as it does require patience and commitment.

The in-season greens + florals were found at my local Whole Foods and the branch was found on the tree in the parking lot, ha. I have always LOVED the idea of a flower wall and I had no idea where I was going with it when I started, I just went with it.

Making your garland is easy. Start off by tying a knot at the top of the branch with your twine. Use floral clippers or scissors to cut the floral to your liking, and then knot the stem.

I left some spaces in between my greens/florals because I like the sparse look. Totally up to you.

To hang on the wall, I tied twine about 8-9 inches from the tip on each end (this helps with weight distribution. Originally I had the twine at the end of each branch but it bowed and almost snapped when I hung it.

I secured the hanging garland on the wall with a white thumbtack. & that’s it! A whimsical cascade of florals.

  • hola Pablo. #casamalca #liketkit http://liketk.it/2Dtxa @liketoknow.it
  • A couple of days ago we rented a car and drove an hour and 45 minutes deep into the jungle to visit this incredible cenoté. We witnessed an ancient Mayan wedding celebration which was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen. There were local cenotés near tulum but this experience was well worth the drive💀
  • our narcos inspired engagement session was taken at @casamalca - Pablo Escobar’s old private getaway 🇨🇴 👨🏻🛩💰💃🏼the photo shoot was short because we were both suffering from too many spicy margaritas from the night before (it wouldn’t be us if we weren’t hungover for our engagement pictures🤣) the rest of the photos are up on the blog! • link in bio • @mayoorquiin #tulum #tulummexico

La Valise is an intimate, exclusive bungalow with only 9 rooms tucked away between the jungle and white sand beaches. It felt like our own private getaway! We extended our trip an extra night and Pasquale actually picked out this eco chic hotel (can you tell I’m rubbing off on him?😉) La Valise exceeded our expectations going above and beyond to make sure we felt right at home from the minute we got there. They noticed Pasquale’s birthday on his passport and even set up a special surprise for us!

Our dreamy room had a cozy bed and open shower with one of the cleanest beaches in Tulum - unfortunately there is a bad seaweed problem on the coast right now but they are working hard to mitigate it

You won’t find a warmer or more welcoming staff than at @lavalisetulum so if you have the opportunity to visit I highly recommend it!
  • sneak peak of our engagement photos🕊🕊 you make my heart so happy, I can’t wait to marry you🤘🏼
  • we’re supposed to be on the road heading to chichén itza but instead I’m laying here📍nursing a gnarly hangover. I think the bartender at casa malca misunderstood my tequila order as TE KILL HER.
