I saw this on one of the best-of-diy threads and was wondering how hard it would be to do this for my hall. I’ve been trying to find some good instructions on how to get it done, but I have no clue where to start or how many petals I would need to pull it off.
There is a balcony area in the hall I’m using (its an open-floor auditorium in a nearby community center) and I’d really like to have a long length of it to hang from the balcony and sort of divide the lower half of the room.
I’ll probably have it stop about 2 feet above the floor instead of pooling at the bottom to lower the risk of someone tripping and ripping it all down

@GoddessofNerdvana: You should check out this thread http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/show-me-the-best-diy-you-have-ever-seen if you scroll down a little bit you will see that the bee eehkay did this for her wedding. She even includes how many petals she used and how she did it.

As eehkay said in ther post, it is a LOT of work.
You could also do a ribbon curtain
or buy beaded or floral door curtains and place them end to end to cover the wall.

You could also try sewn paper circle garlands like this:
But get paper in soft creamy and pink shades. You could even use floral print paper, or textured rough paper, or glitter paper, etc etc. I bet it would be faster than stringing all those petals.
