Speaking of oh-so-very-pretty goodies, I recently created a flower wall display that fits the description to a tee. For our one-month cherry blossom themed tea I wanted to create a wall display that used the beautiful cute pink flowers and displayed them in a unique way – hence the blossoming flower cone wall display was born.

 

DISCLAIMER: pretty as those cherry blossoms may be, they smell horrible. I put the wall together in the morning, left my apartment, and when I returned it smelled as though something had died in my apartment. To my relief – it was just the pretty cherry blossoms that are easy on the eyes but not so easy on the nostrils. This display will only last a few hours before the smell becomes overwhelming and before the flowers start to wilt. But, tolerating the faint smell for the first while is worth it because the blossoming flower cone wall display is oh-so-very-pretty.

 

Project: Blossoming Flower Cone Wall Display

Supplies Needed:

  • A few sheets of cardstock (each sheet makes 2 cones so however many you want, divide that number by 2, and that is the number of cardstock sheets you need)
  • Tape of any sort (I used washi tape because it’s pretty)
  • Hole punch
  • String
  • Cherry blossoms (or any other flower you would like to use in your display)

1. Cut your 8.5 x 11 cardstock paper in half landscape wise so the size of your paper is 8.5 x 5.5

2. Roll your sheets of cardstock into cones, using the center of the paper as the middle-point and tip of the cone.

3. Secure the cone in place by placing a strip of tape along the edge, sealing the end of the paper to the cone.

4. Punch one hole on the left-side of the cone and one hole on the side opposite it on the right-side.

 I had about 10 cones by the time I was finished.

5. Now take the string and cut them into 1-2 meter long pieces, depending on where you’re hanging the cones from. If you want them lower you might need long pieces of string.

6. Feed the string through both of the punched holes and hang the cone pointed-side down.

7. Arrange the cones and hang them on the wall.

 Hang them however you’d like! You can create a pattern or you can just have them in random staggered form. hanging-flower-cone-wall-13

8. Cut your flowers to the desired length so that they just hang over the brim of the cones. Add a small bunch in to each of the cones.  hanging-flower-cone-wall-12

    What did you use to hang them on the walls, tape?

    • Sheryl Yen May 15, 2013 at 8:50 am #

      Hi Tinesha – just used masking tape to secure the strings to the ledge :)

    I know this post is from 2013 so I dont know if I’ll get a reply…but dont the flowers die? is there a way where the cardstock doesnt give out without making a mess? probably not, but I am hopeful.
