DIY Floral Wall Decor - Minnie Mouse
Create a floral piece for a party or home decor. You can use this same tutorial for any shape or size you'd like, not just Minnie! I used it as a backdrop for a party and it was perfect. This DIY is a little time consuming but it's still very simple and the outcome is just gorgeous.
I used a variety of sizes, shades, and styles for my faux flowers. I purchased a few larger, more expensive, realistic looking ones with smaller, cheaper ones to use as filler to save some money without compromising the overall look. You can purchase them online in bulk at a pretty good price.
Purchase a large foam board from any craft store. Have your shape printed at Staples or Office Depot as a black and white "engineering print" (super inexpensive) in whatever size you need to fit the size board you purchased. Use painter's tape to adhere the print to the foam board. Then use an x-acto knife to carefully cut out the shape in the foam board.
Use scissors and/or wire cutters to cut the stems off of your fake flowers.
Use your hot glue gun to glue the flowers on the foam board placing them close enough together so that there aren't any gaps but also so that the flowers aren't crowding each other too much.
Use command strips to hang on the wall.
