My Fiance and I really like this as decor for our ceremony but aren’t quite sure how to go about DIYing this.
The only thing I have right now is ALOT of cherry blossoms. How would I go about trying to DIY this?

Are you trying to recreate the draped fabric as well?

@YSQueen: My best guess- You will need 4 post that can stand for themselves, as it seems that nothing connects them at the top. Then you will need to stand up ur cherry blossom branches, in a way that will create a canapy over the 4 post. This what will give the illusion of the actual arch. I dont really think it matters so much what you secure it with, as long as its nothing large that will stand out.
I think you have a few ways to go from there. Either get some kind of grape vine from an craft store, and wrap it around the post, re-enforcing the branches to them. Its like that they may have used fabric wrapped around as well. Its hard to tell.
I think they like then either glued on the flowers, or, like glued on the flower hard foam, that they allowed them to secure the flowers where needed.

@bells: No, just the poles with flowers.

@HardyPooleParty: I was thinking that I may have to get some PVC pipe and spray paint it and put it in some flower pots as I can’t figure out how to make it stand on its own.

Maybe you could close the ends of the PVC (with the caps they sell) and fill them with sand? They’d be super heavy, but would stand upright!
I dunno about spray painting the PVC, I don’t know if you’d get the effect you’re looking for. Maybe spray paint it and then drape in brown organza-like fabric?

My guess is that these have a base that’s a square – otherwise they’d tip over. Maybe a wood base with a fitting attached to it, then you drop in PVC (which you’d probably still want to weigh down a little) and attach the branches as mentioned above.
It’s beautiful!!! Good luck 🙂
