@eliseemma:  have you already glued/attached it to the tulle? If not, just paint the top side of the pad white so it blends in. Just regular cheap white spray paint will work.  You just need to camouflage it a bit.

I’m using a white cotton fabric instead of tulle underneath mine. It helps my white petals seem brighter, so that might help (though I don’t know if you feel like buying more fabric to go underneath).

 

P.S. @eliseemma:  where did you get your navy petals? They are beautiful!

@eliseemma:  hmmm what if you double up on the ivory petals??or change the fabric… It’s def noticeable– but the petal placement looks great!!

I made those for my wedding and I tried the spray glue and that was a hot mess.  I suggest just using a low temp hot glue gun and putting the petals on really really thick and not so flat.  You need to glue down a small portion and have them be more standing up.  I used over 10K petals for each aisle runner (had them on both sides).

@eliseemma: You can do it! I worked on mine all the way up until the night before but it looked amazing and I was so proud.
