The one I wanted to buy online was $300+,, I’m making mine super cheap,only have 10 feet done so far. Bought thousands of pink petals on ebay for around $12(a lot of ebay sellers have HUGE color selections!) and bought the white petals at dollar tree they have 300 petals in a bag for a buck. I cut tulle that I paid like 65 cents a yard for into 8 inch wide strips and the tulle is very wide so you only need 5/6 yards max since you cut it down. Here’s a tutorial I found on the bee, it’s not hard or expensive just very time consuming! I suggest working on it a little at a time every few days (if you have the time before your wedding) so you don’t get burnt out. Here’s also a progress pic of mine

@parada:  I don’t have a tutorial or anything…..But let me try to explain it. Is’s actually pretty simple:

Supplies you need:

1. Hot glue gun…. Some use spray glue(didn’t work for me)

2. Fabric to glue the petals to…. Many people use an actual runner

3.Petals… My runner is about 3ft wide and 25 ft long…. I used prob about 10,000-12,000 petals for a very plush look. You can use whatever colors you like… I used 3 different colors

*** once you gather supplies start gluing….. I glued mine in all different directions to make them look a more natural type look( kinda how they would look if they just fell on their own)

@parada:  a couple of months…. I just worked on it a few hours each night while watching TV. Very very very time consuming …. Burnt fingers and back pain….. Lol. Don’t start it unless you have lots of patience and plenty of time!!

@parada:  I’m not sure exactly how many layers. I just kept gluing and overlapping until it was plush like I wanted it!

@weddingbound:  Is it true that it’s difficult to walk on?  I’ve heard stories of heels getting stuck and brides stumbling 🙁

@ebarnes0:  I walked just fine on mine but my runner was on top of a tile surface. I think it would be hard to walk on if it were on grass possibly.
