Are you feeling crafty dear brides? We show you how to DIY a sweet, floral ceremony backdrop.

What are you making?
A sweet and romantic scene-setter

A wide selection of blooms in your chosen colour scheme
Washi tape in two colours

Here?s the how-to
1. Use two strips of tape to mark out the space you’re decorating.

2. Trim your blooms to approximately 30cm each.

3. Using the lines as your guide, start from the bottom and use Washi tape to fix your bloom onto the wall.

4. Use a magazine or ruler to make sure the space between the rows stays even.
