Dried florals, foliage, and grass
Protective surface cover
Scissors or wire cutter
Begin creating the paper palms for your floral wall art. Start by cutting a section of your kraft paper and fold it in half, then cut an arch meeting at the middle fold.
Open up the fold and begin accordion folding back and forth, doing your best to keep the folds the same size across the whole paper until you reach the end, and crease with your fingers. Repeat the first two steps with various-sized pieces of kraft paper for your floral wall art.
Pinch the bottom of the folded kraft paper and wrap with floral wire at the base, leaving about 6 inches of wire off the bottom to secure to the chicken wire frame later. Spread the folded kraft paper to make palm frond-inspired shapes for your floral wall art.
Set out your dried foliage, florals, and paper palms onto a protected work surface in a well-ventilated area. Choose which metallic spray paint colors you’d like to use for this floral wall art and begin spray painting. For this project, Oh Yay Studio used Princess Cut, Bubble Bath, Cheers, First Million, Treasure Chest, Lucky Penny, and Bronzer to create a lustrous metallic fall-inspired palette! Apply several light coats of metallic spray paint until you’re satisfied with the coverage. Allow to dry completely.
Begin making a structure out of chicken wire for your floral wall art installation. You can make this any shape you’d like to fit your aesthetic! For this project, Oh Yay Studio created a curved, capped piece by cutting the wire into 4 pieces that are about 16” wide and folding them inward. Use hooks to attach the chicken wire structure to the wall, then begin attaching your metallic-painted floral wall art to the wire structure. Start with any long grass pieces, then layer in the larger paper palms. Then add in your dried flowers and foliage, and fill any bare spots with smaller paper palms.
Keep adjusting your metallic finish floral wall art until you’re satisfied with how it looks. Take a step back and enjoy your DIY fall décor! This elegant piece is the perfect backdrop for parties, selfies, or just because! If you have extra paint leftover when you’re finished with this project, add matching décor to your home with our gorgeous metallic spray paints!
