It’s hard to find large scale wall decor on a budget. I have been looking for the perfect piece to hang above the dresser in my girls room with no luck. So I decided to make something myself! I wanted something whimsical, colorful and girly and I came up with this pretty flower petal art.
Supplies needed to make your own flower petal art:
- 18 x 24 Inch Blank White Canvas
- Satin Rose Petals in White, Pink and Coral
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Begin your flower petal art by painting the canvas if desired. I chose to keep mine white. Using a pencil, mark concentric circles to act as placement guides. Then begin gluing petals down one by one starting in the center.
I started my circle halfway off the canvas and had individual petals floating on the blank edge, but I think it would look great to start the flower in the center and have it fill the entire canvas all the way to the edges. The options are endless!
If you find yourself with extra flower petals left over after you’re project is finished, consider using them to make this flower petal jewelry holder. The two pieces would look great displayed together!
