• {Fabric} Wallflowers

    Years ago, {no joke} my sister Angela & I discussed upholstering flowers

    & attaching them to the wall in her daughter’s room.

    It never actually happened but as soon as I started Snippets of Design

    we decided to “get em done”!

     

     

    Angela has 5 kids of her own & she babysits a number of other children

    so I had lots of wonderful help :)

    {& so many cute, willing models!}

    As you can see this was our b4 picture.

    It is not the whole room

    but this is just a step in the re-decorating process of their room

    so make sure you follow my feed so you don’t miss the remaining steps. ;)

    This is our “faded, heavenly, dreamy, after picture”…haha! :)

    {filled with my favorite models of course!} ;)

     This is more what the flowers really look like:

    To start with, I traced the petals & centers

    with chalk onto foam board.

    You can download the pattern for the petals here:

    & you can download the pattern for the centers here:

    Centers

    After you print out, cut out, & trace the patterns,

    use an Exacto knife to cut them out of the foam board.

    Cut Pieces of batting & fabric large enough to wrap around the edges of the flowers

    & centers making sure that the fabric pieces are larger than the batting pieces.

    Use a glue gun to glue the fabric & batting into place on the back-side, pulling the fabric tightly.

    We ended up using very small sewing pins to attach the flowers to the wall.

    They worked great!

    I am kind of excited to finish the rest of the room.

    the flowers look cuter than expected in person.

    I still think the wall color is kind of intense but we can change that if needed. :)

    We have a lot of fun ideas in store & the girls couldn’t be happier with their flowers!

    {Little girls are so happy & easy to please, I love them!}

    I am helping with another party this week

    I am really excited about this one,
