Diy Project || #14 || Removable Floral Wallpaper

Pin It!

I am so happy for the winter to get booted out and spring to be ushered in! As a true bred Californian, I feed off the sunshine, lazy afternoons, and color. For the past 4-5 months I have all but none of these things, so I may be a little starved of all things wonderful at the moment. This DIY removable spring floral wallpaper is great for those with non-permanent housing (i.e. renters or college students) and yet it adds so much color and originality to a room! I may have gone a bit overboard by adding the 'fairy' like white flowers over the window but, hey, it's my space! Overall, try to pick more mute colors for a base (i.e. various tones of green leaves/flowers) and then add that subtle punch with a few really bright flowers (for example, the occasional orange, purple, and yellow petaled ones in the picture). I bought a few large bouquets of fake flowers at Joann's when they were on sale for $0.99 each and just broke them apart to turn them into many small flowers. Lining the flowers in vertical rows also helps create a "wallpaper effect" and to organize the colorful, natural burst that has exploded on your wall. Feel free to experiment with colors and designs, though -- just be (colorfully) inspired!


INGREDIENTS YOU'LL NEED:

  2. Such a cool idea, for a fun temporary wall decoration, beats just having posters! How long did these last before they started getting all droopy?

    1. Thanks so much, Charlotte! The best part about it is that I used plastic flowers, so they never wither with time! It's like having spring all year around -- which for me is the best thing ever probably :)

  3. This is surprisingly adorable! I would never have thought to do this, but it would make for a great feature wall at a wedding or event too.

    1. Thank you, Elle!! I truly love the sun, it is such a great feeling to wake up to this color every morning! The blinds I purchased online a couple years ago from Target. If I remember correctly, they were actually from the Baby section (haha!) but they are very light and billowy -- I guess I'm still a child inside :)
