DIY Hanging Flower Wall Installation

I am way, way late to the game on sharing this DIY hanging flower wall installation that we made for our Kate Spade shoot a few months back. I’d give you a good reason why, but I honestly don’t really have one. Basically, I’m just a mess. Thankfully flowers are the perfect “I’m sorry” statement, so let’s just say that alllll of these hanging blooms are for you. And you, and you.

Luckily it won’t take you nearly as long to make your own version as it did for me to write this tutorial. Our gals from Blush & Vine (with special thanks for Flower Muse for supplying the flower!s) helped us figure out the easiest way to DIY one without much fuss.

Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-44

Foam board

Jigsaw or box cutter for cutting foam board

Spray adhesive

Picture wire

Wire cutters

Two eyelets

Moss

Flowers

Sewing pins

Drill

Screw eye hooks

Draw the shape you want on the foam board, and then use a jigsaw or box cutter to cut out the shape you’re going to hang.

Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-2

Drill 2 holes on the top of the foam board a few inches from either end, then superglue eyelets in each hole to make sure the wire is secure and doesn’t rip through the foam board once it’s hung.

Next, spray the board with a spray adhesive and then apply the moss to cover the majority of the foam board.

Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-6Once you have moss in place, use push pins to securely pin flowers to the board. I love the idea of making them ombre, in lines, or even fading in quantity from one side of the board to another.Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-14

When everything is pinned and glued in place, string picture wire through each eyelet and securely knot and twist the wire in place, then hang from the ceiling with eye hooks. Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-17 Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-30 Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-65 Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-70 Williams Sonoma x Kate Spade-69

Shout out to Jared for being the only one tall enough to man the hanging DIY’s, haha. That and the fact that neither Kayla or I could lift it by ourselves, but tomato-tomahto. If it was just us in the studio, we would be severely limited in our DIY abilities in comparison…

    Looks beautiful! I love that it’s not a regular shape either.

    This is so beautiful! It’s super unique and fun compared to other hanging installations. And I always use glue too to do flower things like this…it’s so easy!!

    Hi.
    I super loves all of your DIYs. Especially when it involves fresh florals, but is it okay to hot glue it with glue gun? and leave it without water?

    • Ashley said:

      Hi Ezzah! We actually used a spray adhesive, and didn’t add any water. They lasted for a few days perfectly!

    This is beautiful! And not as complicated as I would have thought to make it.

    Hi, beautiful work! I want to do this as a backdrop for my daughters birthday. I was wondering where you found that foam board, I can’t seem to find one of that size. Also, did you use real moss? Do you think faux ivy leaves would stick with spray adhesive?And lastly what size eyelets did you use? S

      Hi Vanessa – sounds so fun! I believe I found my foam board at hobby lobby. We used real moss, but I think that fake ivy leaves would also stick with an adhesive!
