@SugerPlum: Okay, so there is a bee on here (and I cannot for the life of me remember her name) who did this! And it turned out AWESOME! Maybe try searching for her thread, I think she explained a lot about it…

I’ll try to search for you as well…

Is there any way you could hang it somehow from the ceiling in your venue?

what about using a pretty white wired arbor? Or, if you can hang it by the ceiling you could use a drapery bar.

what if you ran a string from either side of the room, at the height you wanted it?

Here’s the thread I was thinking about!!!!

She used flower petals, but I’m sure it would work for whole flowers as well! Try looking on save-on-crafts for some loose flowers or petals!

No problem, glad to help! You could also check on Craigslist to see if someone has a used one, just be careful for you safety with Craigslist.  🙂

@Maggie.Rosina: I can’t find anything on Martha’s website, but I found two others.

This one just has a super quick caption:



This one actually has DIY instructions, a blogger used the original photo for inspiration, and shows a pic of her own results:

Hmm,, this is an interesting point. You can’t hang it on the ceilings or on the wall and you want it to look free standing.

I think that you could build a wooden frame instead of a PVC frame that you can paint whatever color you want. It would look like that but enclosed in a wide rectangle I guess. Another option would be to build a solid panel (either wooden or something cheaper) that would be as wide as you want it to be and have a “lip” coming out of the top where you could hang the flowers, creating sort of a psuedowall. the solid panel can be painted to your colors, or even have a really cool wallpaper. I wish I could draw here so I could give you an idea of what I’m thinking.


I think the wooden frame wouldn’t be a bad idea. I used something similar for my altar background, You can look at it here . It’s maybe the 4th or 5th picture.

Here are a few photos I had saved.  Probably from someone on weddingbee but I don’t know who.
