Gathered: Foliage Wall

Foliage Wall @themerrythoughtI’ve had all kinds of flower/foliage faux wallpaper and wall decor pinned for the past year or so and have been taking my sweet time putting together one of my own. I finally got around to doing a fresh floral wall for a baby shower last month and I realized… it takes no time at all! And then I became obsessed. I want every wall in my apartment to be covered in flowers and leaves and anything I can steal from the woods.

Lots of bright colors isn’t usually my style and my allergies are terrible, so I decided to skip the flowers this time and took Levi out to gather up some green loveliness to display. A few pieces of tape and a couple minutes later, we had put together this sweet little wall display.

    Hey, do you think it is possible to coat fresh green leaves in parafin wax or transparent acrylic paint to make them never die? (so they do not wilt, turn brown and dry out)
    Thank you!ReplyCancel

      I’ve never tried any of those techniques – but we will definitely look into it this summer!ReplyCancel

    Can you post a picture or send me a picture to my email when the leaves dry out? Do they turn brown or stay green? I do this with flowers but have never tried it with leaves.ReplyCancel

      This post is actually from a couple of years ago and I don’t have any photos of the wall after the leaves dried out. I do know that they definitely dried out at different rates and they all dried out much differently – some retained most of the green while others turned brown. Some of them curl up quite a bit and some just don’t dry out well at all. This is more of a backdrop for a photoshoot or party. You would need to use specific types of greens that dry out well if you plan on leaving this up for an extended period of time.ReplyCancel
