Silk flower wedding DIY project: create a beautiful hanging vase backdrop, with Pumpkin & Pye

I don’t know if Instagram and Pinterest have made us love flowers more, or if flowers led us to fall in love with Instagram and Pinterest in the first place… but I’m sure you’ll be Pinning today’s loveliness like crazy. I love the idea of hanging flowers in little vases up the walls of your wedding venue… and this super pretty wedding DIY project from Pumpkin & Pye‘s lovely Natasha shows you how!

Hanging vase backdrop 

You will need – flower stems, foliage stems, twine, scissors, wooden pole or nails to hang vases from (if your chosen wall doesn’t have beams to use)

Step 1

Select your flower heads, foliage stems and vases (bottles, milk bottles and jam jars are perfect as the lip on these holds the twine in place once tied)

Step 2

Cut your flower/foliage stems to the desired length for each vase

Step 3

Keep the twine long for hanging length use a twine or strong string tie around the top of the vases just below the lip a couple times so it’s secure enough to hang
