Planning or organizing a backyard event? Or perhaps holding your event at a space with a pool area? Whether it be for your wedding or a celebration, we share this guide on how to pre-make these babies! Yes, you can pre-make these 2-3 days before your event! Here are tips on how to DIY pool flowers (floaties!)
What you’ll need
Start with either a round styrofoam loop (1), or if you want it to be fuller, you can use full circle styrofoam (1). Get your favorite silk flowers (4); we love some hydrangeas, roses, and some pom poms.
** Use a plier to cut the wires and also bend out the blooms a little bit so it has a natural look to it! **
Let’s start creating these easy DIY pool flowers for your poolside wedding! To start decorating, pre-cut the wires on the silk flowers. Please do not cut them too short, so you can still create some height and dimension to the arrangements.
Plug in the glue gun and start decorating! You’re on your way to completing your DIY pool flowers (floaties!)
PRO TIP #1: Ensure you cover the white of the foam. Use smaller buds and greeneries.
PRO TIP #2: Do not overthink the arrangement, freely poke through the foam. This will help you achieve a garden-y look and feel, instead of just being a ball of flowers.
PRO TIP #3: Add height. When you poke the flowers through, add height and intentionally have some of the blooms sticking out.
PRO TIP #4: If some threads stick out of the silk flowers, cut them out. Those threads hanging out are a telltale sign that the flowers are fake. But when you clean up the edges, it just makes it a little less fake than it looks.
Looking to be extra fancy? You can also include some flameless candles in your DIY pool flowers! To do this, stick a plastic bowl on the styrofoam FIRST before you add the flowers around it; this way, on the day of the event, you can light up the flameless candles on putting them on top of the bowl! How cute are these easy DIY pool flowers for your poolside wedding!
Super easy and quick! Voila! You have your gorgeous DIY pool flowers (floaties!)
There you are! Gorgeous DIY pool flowers!
