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:


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
