Here are some pics of my Umbra flowers which I love, love, LOVE in our foyer. They’re whimsical and sculptural and I think it gives people a surprise when they first walk in our door. (FYI: To hang these, I cut a big piece of craft paper to the dimensions of the space I wanted to fill, then played with the layout of the flowers until it suited me. I then marked the placement of each flower on the paper with a Sharpie and hung the paper on the wall with painter’s tape. I nailed the tacks in based on my marks, ripped the paper off, and finally hung the flowers. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!)
But Just a Girl has one-upped me with a DIY version that cost $5 less. She used cardboard toilet paper tubes to make a very chic, very green (well, minus the spraypaint fumes) version and it looks fantastic. I’m not sure if she was inspired by the Umbra ones, but this project reminded me so much of my own foyer I had to post pictures of both so you could compare.
