I need help with this one. My former students who fell in love in my chemistry class (and now are good friends of mine because they go to my church) are getting married. I have been offering to help her out and finally she accepted my offer and asked for me to make one these for her bridal shower. But if I use fake flowers she’ll also use for her wedding. I really want to do awesome but I struggling to figure out how MANY Flowers to order. I need it for approx 9’x9′ backdrop with some flexible room on making it smaller if necessary. I plan to use carnations, but any flower is fine as long as it different color pinks and white. I know it’s not house hold decor but I figured I’d ask. Thanks in advance!!!

So pretty! i have never done one of these before but I think if i was making this, i would find some string and measure the height that you want, then take something simple like strips of ribbon and tie them to basically make a mock up of how dense you want the flowers to look, then measure out how long you want the wall to be an multiply accordingly. that’s my advice, for what its worth lol. And definitely add like two lines worth of extra flowers if that is a budget possibility – It is always better to have too many supplies than not enough! Good luck!

I made something like this for our backdrop. But they’re fake watercolor flowers using this tutorial (VERY TIME CONSUMING) http://www.craftberrybush.com/2013/02/crepe-and-watercolor-flower-tutorial.html
The width I needed was about 8′, we’re using about 24 strings and I made 500 flowers.

I would recommend Artificial or paper flowers so you can work on this further out. Really flowers you will rushing this the morning of the shower.

This is probably too late but I’ll post incase anyone else interested comes across thos! I ordered a bunch of fake flowers from ebay and they were around $5 for 50 flower heads! Suuuper cheap so you can order a ton for a small price! (I don’t know how to turn my photo around sorry!)
