@eliseemma:  

1. Mine was 25 ft long and around 3 ft wide…. I suggest going to your venue and measuring out 20 ft and seeing how it looks to you before you get started! I think really you can use any colors!

2. I just used a dot of hot glue on the center of each petal….. Be careful I can’t tell you how many times I burnt myself! 

3. I had no issues with walking on it but I added a nonslip backing to the underneath side of mine. I also got married on a tile rooftop so it was easy to walk on! I think it all depends on the surface you are using it on! I think it would be very hard to use one on grass. I also practiced walking on mine in my heels before the wedding.

Our venue doesnt allow loose petals so I plan to do a runner like this…we’re going to be outdoors though so hopefully we will be able to walk with no issues!  I think those colors would look good 🙂

I plan on making one of these, as my venue also does not allow fresh flower petals.

I read from another bee who did this that you can get petals super cheap on Ebay–and it’s true! WAY more affordable than trying to use the ones you can get from Wal Mart!

@eliseemma:  It seems like one of the bees who DIY’ed hers posted the name of the seller. I will see if I have it posted anywhere.

I want the cut out swirl petal runners. Does anyone know if this is difficult to walk on. I am getting married on grass in a garden.

I think the colours will look good, but like a PP said you might want to measure. I am only doing border ones so I won’t be walking on mine, but I did a line of hot glue then quickly attached the petals instead of glueing each petal.
