Here are tips on how to DIY pool flowers (floaties!)
Let’s start creating this easy DIY pool flowers for your poolside wedding! To start decorating, pre-cut the wires on the silk flowers. 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 over think the arrangement, freely poke through the foam. This will help you achieve a garden-y look and feel, instead of it 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 there are some threads sticking out of the silk flowers, cut them out. Those threads hanging out are a tell tale 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 just light up the flameless candles on put it on top of 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 (floatie!)
