Do you ever have a wall in your living room that’s just blank and practically begging for something super special to go there? We have this mint painted piano and I wanted to do something really special and fun above it, like flower wall decor! Sometimes things are easier said than done, but this easy DIY isn’t one of them! I have to be honest this is one of my favorite living room decorating ideas of all time and space forever and ever amen. As a bonus, I also used this as part of my bridal shower decorations for my sister’s wedding shower!
When you’re thinking of living room decorating ideas, there are a lot of things that can come to mind. At first, I was going to do some framed pictures, but I wanted something above them that added a whimsical, playful tone. I had been thinking about doing some sort of flower wall decor for awhile, but I didn’t have the time to make and assemble paper flowers (ain’t nobody got time for that!), and I was too stubborn to buy them.
So, imagine my delight when I was scrolling Instagram and came across this beautiful image from one of my favorite accounts, Cottonstem. She had solved my dilemma perfectly, by using foam flowers from Hobby Lobby! I literally saw her post, dropped Lily in Scott’s lap and zoomed over to Hobby Lobby.
The foam flowers are in the nursery decor section. They come in white and a bright hot pink, and range in price from $3 for the tiny ones to $10 for the big ones. I financed my entire flower wall decor project for under $100!

To attach the foam flowers to the wall, I used one of my favorite products, Scotch Command Strips. No, this post isn’t sponsored by them, I’m just obsessed! 😉
I used the command strips to hang the first flower—I knew I wanted the larger flowers clumped in the corners with smaller ones in between.
Once I hung my first flower, I built out the design from there—I made a gif to show you how (it took me foreva to figure out how to make and embed this gif so please watch it a few times, k?)
This project took me about 2 hours to complete, but that was with entertaining a baby at the same time. 😉
As you can see from the gif above, I also added leaves for a bit more depth. I am not sure the exact name of these, but I love the fuzziness. I attached them with Scotch poster tape since I had it on hand. I mostly just used the tape for re-inforcement—the leaves were tucked into each flower and the petals are what really held them.
Isn’t this one of the best living room decorating ideas? So cute and fun! I love how this flower wall decor fits the fun vibe with the piano and is completely customizable for any space!
Bonus: it also makes the perfect addition to your bridal shower decorations! Add a cute banner (I got this one from Amazon) and your living room is party-ready. Woo!
What do you think? Would you put flowers as part of your living room decor?
