So, this DIY is really inspired by heartmade (one of my favorite blogs). I loved it so much when I found it on pinterest I had to try it. It definitely matches the bold and colorful pieces already in my room.
I did a few things differently...
1. I made my flowers bigger using a cup's mouth as a stencil.
2. I made so many flowers that it made sense to use hot glue instead of a needle and thread. Hot glue ended up working really well.
3.To hang the garland I used pushpins. They haven't come out and it's much easier than installing hooks.
(yes that picture is a Klimt print, every house should have one)
4. To make more of a statement backdrop (hello I'm all about the statement!) I hung the garland vertically.
Also, look at these pictures!!! I am definitely getting better with a point and shoot and gimp. And I am officially in love with Macro Photography!
