Follow these easy steps to create your own beautiful floral backdrop.

1) First you will need to gather the supplies. For this project you will need silk flowers, scissors, glue gun, and 7 moss table runners.  You don’t need to spend a fortune to recreate this look, use cheap flowers from Afloral.com.  They look great and will totally keep you on budget!

2) Next lay out the moss runners so that they overlap and glue them together to create the base.

3) After the glue has dried you may need to consider how you will choose to hang your backdrop once it is finished. We decided to hang ours on a rod. So we wrapped one side around our rod and glued the edge of the backdrop to the backside, creating a sleeve for the rod. Once the backdrop was glued, we used clips to hold it in place as it dried.

4) The next step is to cut all of your flower heads off their stems. Now you’re ready to start adding your florals! We suggest laying out your design before you start gluing them to the backdrop.
