10 Creative Ways to Decorate the Wall with Flowers

Spring is nature’s way of saying, let’s party!
~ Robin Williams

We couldn’t agree more, Robin. Nature is alive again. The warmth of the sun, and buds in the trees is rejuvenating for the soul. We’re so happy Spring is here – seriously, we would hug it if we could.

Naturally, we’ve got flowers on our mind…and hopefully on our walls soon with all these amazing floral wall decoration ideas.

10 Creative Ways to Decorate the Wall with Flowers

1. Antler and Flower Wall Art: We’re still obsessed with all the deer heads popping up on walls, so the combo of deer heads, bright colors and fresh floral has us swooning. {via Wedding Chicks}

5. DIY Fresh Flower Wall: Buy some fresh stems from your local florist and hang the stems with washi tape. You can do this on a small-scale, or a large one. And, if you want it to last longer, buy fake stems. {via Green Wedding Shoes}

Bloom into Spring with DIY Watercolor Flower Cups + Giveaway

Clearly, Jessica is in the mood for paper cups and watercolor this spring. Jenna was described as the ‘flower child’ growing up, but it seems Jessica’s inner flower child is coming out now. First came the bunnies, and then came the flowers.

Our Nani, fabulous as ever at age 79, is a proper lady that loves to entertain and host. She’s good at it, too. Amazingly, she has more energy then we do. Just like mother’s do, she will still walk up to us at a party {even in our 20′s and 30′s}and remind us to say hi to Mr. and Mrs. so and so, and congratulate them on their recent successes. We never understood it until we became mothers. Being the hostess with the mostess that she is, the thought of using plastic and paper glassware and flatware at a party is unbearable. It must always be china or glassware.

But, these DIY watercolor flower cups got the seal of approval from good ‘ole Nani P. They are paper, but they look lovely, and they don’t look cheap. You can fill them with water, juice or a fave cocktail, or fill them with a favor. They make for a great place card, too, with custom names painted on them. Use them for Easter, a spring brunch, bridal shower or baby shower.

Easter Watercolor Bunny Tail Cups

watercolor-bunny-tail-easter-cups-pink-blue-green-cotton-diy

One of our favorite Easter memories from childhood is the year the Easter bunny brought us chicks. Yes, real live chicks. And, they were green and pink. Sounds totally inhumane, and honestly we have no idea how they did it, or whether it was permanent or not. But, all we know is that the Easter bunny brought us colorful chicks, and we got to feed, pet and care for them for a whole week before we had to bring them back home to a local farm.

Besides our brief stint with chicks, the only real pet we had throughout our childhood was a rabbit. Sweet Thumper.

Painting these DIY bunny tail paper cups brought back memories of our pet rabbit, and the fun memories chasing him all over the yard.

These would make for a cheap and easy addition to your Easter table setting, or a lovely gift filled with candy or small gifts…so let’s hop to it.

You’ll Need:

  • paper cups {.97 cents for 10}
  • watercolor paints {quality brand like Windsor and Newton, brush and cup of water}
  • cotton balls
  • hot glue gun

How To:

  • Print and cut an outline of a rabbit you find online.
  • Place the rabbit on the cup and lightly trace around it with a pencil.
  • Dip your brush into watercolor paint, and a touch of water and paint within and just on the pencil outline {so you don’t see it} of the rabbit.
  • Let dry.
  • Glue the cotton ball on the tail of the bunny.

DIY Best.Day.Ever. Confetti Banner

best day ever banner-confetti-table runner-diy-red-blue-yellow-green-dots

We consider our weddings and the birth of our children to be among our Best.Day{s}.Ever.

What was your Best.Day.Ever?

Some days will always be more special than others, and some days will be trivial, but what if we tried to make every day the Best.Day.Ever? What a wonderful world that would be! We never know what day will be our last, but we know for sure that each and every moment is truly a blessing, so every day we’re alive should be considered the Best.Day.Ever.

We created a large DIY Confetti Best.Day.Ever. sign that would make…

  • the best DIY party backdrop ever
  • the best DIY table-cloth ever
  • the best DIY birthday banner ever

You can make the DIY confetti sign for under $20, and its a fun activity to do with the kids.

You’ll Need:

How To:

  • Tape Kraft paper to the wall behind the paper tablecloth. If you choose to do a plastic tablecloth, you may not need the ‘backing,’ but if you choose to use a paper tablecloth that’s soft like linen, the markers will bleed through.
  • Tape the table-cloth to the wall using painter’s tape.
  • Use stencils or a Silhouette cutting machine to cut large Best.Day.Ever. letters.
  • Use painter’s tape to tape the letters in place on the table-cloth. You will need to roll the tape to make it double-sided.
  • Start with one color and get ‘dot happy.’ Dot the markers all over the sides and corners of the letters and all over the table-cloth in a random fashion.
  • Repeat with all the marker colors.
  • Remove the letters from the table-cloth.
