You’ve probably considered redecorating your room at some point or another. But giving it a fresh coat of colour, doing up a mural, or adding wallpaper comes at a high price - or at least high effort if you DIY.
But a having DIY floral wall - the new Instagram bedroom decor trend - is none of that. It’s easily done in minutes and will give any drab room new life, even if its existing paint job is meh at best.
Read on to find out how to make a DIY floral wall in your bedroom!
You might have seen a couple of influencers posting photos of their floral walls on Instagram - Tara Whiteman, better known as @taramilktea, had hers going viral and getting reposted by plenty recently.
It's super easy to decorate your home in the same way using just a few materials: Tape, scissors, and of course, flowers.
First, trim the stems of the flowers to a length of your preference. If you’ve bought the flowers in a bunch, cut them into individual stalks for a cleaner look. This is essential to nailing the aesthetic.
Then, simply tape them up to your wall. That’s literally it! So easy, even a child could do it.
Clear tape may not hold well on walls, unless it’s industrial packing tape. Consider using craft tape or coloured washing tape for a quirkier vibe.
A floral wall can last for about a week, after which the blooms will wither. For something more permanent, you can always use artificial flowers or preserved dried ones that won’t die.
You can arrange the flowers randomly, in uniform lines, or in alternate spaces depending on your desired outcome. Whichever you choose, just make sure to leave even gaps in between so that the end result doesn’t look messy.
Go a step further and string your flowers up on wooden racks to hang on your wall, just like how Singaporean influencer Cloe Mak (@jujujucloe) has done.
Give it a try - any drab room decorated like so will be livened up by leaps and bounds! The flowers will also serve as a great backdrop for your selfies.
