Even if your own travel plans have been put on hold for a bit, a vicarious trip via your miniature friends and dolls is always a fun way to put that wanderlust to work!
This super sweet and simple DIY idea can be done in an afternoon, with plenty of time left for staging the photoshoot, or setting up your miniatures for whatever adventure the flower wall is going to be a part of!
Your flower wall can be made with real or faux flowers, depending on the time of the year, preference, and what you have available or think looks the best for your DIY project!
I used mums for my fresh flower wall, but you can purchase smaller craft store flowers or another type of faux bloom if you want your wall to be a little longer lasting!
Other fresh flowers would work great and look really gorgeous for this project as well, including daisies, babies breath, or even flower petals off of bigger flowers or plants!
Want to do a themed flower wall for a specific pic or occasion? Here are some flower wall ideas for themes!
Flower Wall Themes and Inspiration!
XOXO - This can be a Valentine's Day Theme or just a fun romantic look! Use pink and red roses, Mini hearts (buttons, rhinestones or sequins) and letter stickers that spell 'XOXO', Love u 4ever, or another sweet message!
Birthday Wishes - Use a favorite flower or birth month flower (or a flower in the birthstone color) with mini rhinestones or embellishments in a colored hue for someone's birthday!
Merry and Bright - Use red flowers, white sprigs and green leaves for Christmas, embellish with glitter, mini snowflake sequins or Christmas themed buttons or stickers.
Enchanted Fairy Garden -Use small green leaves, purple, blue or pink flowers and mini birds or buttons. You can add mini lights too!
Retro Wall - Use a popular flower from the decade you want your wall to be inspired by, and add embellishments that go with the time! Pearl beads for the 1920's, Pink roses and a poodle cut-out for the 50's, or bright yellow flowers and wooden beads for the 1970's!
Iconic Instagram Look - Use brightly colored flowers of choice, and add a sign, glitter, or keep it simple!
Ombre - Use several different shades of your blooms for a dynamic ombre effect!
Rustic - Use darker flowers, little twigs or burlap ribbon and rustic buttons.

Winter Wonderland - Use white and blue flowers and greenery with some glitter, and silver and blue embellishments
Sweet Treats- Use warm pinks, reds, oranges and yellows and add cute buttons or sequins of desserts around the flower wall! You can find doll-size sweets to glue on as well!
