Sewing Pattern Tissue Flower Feature Wall

 A few weeks ago I posted my tutorial for making Sewing Pattern Tissue Flowers.  I was originally making them for an office space I’ve been working on, but fell so in love with them I had to use them in my own home. Click the image below for the complete tutorial for making these beauties:

HERE is my original inspiration for making and installing the flowers.  The ever amazing Anthropologie:

For my installation, I wanted to keep it light and easily removed.  You know me, I love to change things up, so I didn’t want even MORE holes in my walls.  I opted for standard scotch tape, the one in the green box for office supplies.  I taped up the strings that hold the flowers together.  The tape is nearly invisible and easily removed.

For now, my tv is centered on a wall in my family room.  I decided to have the flowers cascade from one upper corner down diagonal to the opposite bottom corner.

 I was going for a really organic, natural feel and I think the texture and color really work with this theme.  I especially love the up close photo where you can see the pattern details.

I love how the whole space has come together lately.  I’m usually on the masculine side of decorating, with the blues, dark reds, and tans but I feel these flowers add just a touch of femininity without being too frilly.

Because of all of the layers and sized that I created the flowers add a lot of depth to an otherwise boring wall.

  • Total Flowers: 27
  • Total Patterns Needed: around 10
  • Time to make pattern flowers: 5 hours

OK, you are probably freaking out at the five hours, but I think they are worth it and very versatile.  Who knows where I’ll use them next…maybe on my Christmas tree?  Oh my, the holidays can’t come soon enough!  For now, I’ll enjoy staring at them every time I watch TV.

  • I love that you used used sewing patterns! I have some old patterns that were my grandma’s. I’m never going to use them but I can’t bear to throw them out. Maybe I’ll have to try something like this. Thanks for the inspiration!
