DIY: Pom Pom Photo Garland

Step 1

Gather all of your favorite pictures that you want to display. We recommend keeping all of the images around the same size and shape to achieve a more uniform look.

 

Be creative and choose to keep all of the photos in a similar color scheme (black and white, blue tones, etc) Play around with it until you find a group of pictures that you are happy with! (We recommend having 8-10 photos)

Step 2

Once you have all of your pictures, you’re going to get your Command™ Clear Small Hooks prepped to be placed on the wall. Before any application, make sure to wipe down your walls with a bit of rubbing alcohol to ensure maximum adhesion!

 

Once both the wall and hooks are ready, you can begin the installation following Command™ instructions on the back of the packaging. We suggest placing the hooks around four feet apart. If you want to make a multi-tiered display, keep each tier about a foot apart.

Step 3

After you have your hooks in place, it’s time to hang your garland! Simply drape the garland over the hooks and make sure the parts that are left hanging are equal in length on both sides.

 

If your garland is having trouble staying in place, you can always tie the excess hanging string an extra time around the hook to help prevent any slipping!

Step 4

Now that your garland is in place, it’s time to hang your pictures! Before you begin any hanging, make sure all of your pom poms are equidistant from each other to help give the whole display a neater look.

 

Afterwards, simply take the clothes pins and pin your pictures in between the pom poms. 

Step 5

Although this step is completely optional, we recommend adding a few prints or even a wooden sign to your wall display to help complete the look and really make it a focal point of the room. Stick with the black and white theme and add black and white prints to either side, or add in a pop of color that matches the rest of your color scheme.

 

This Pom Pom Picture Garland is an adorable way to display your favorite photos, all while creating a statement piece in your room! If you do decide to create this DIY at home, make sure to share your photos and tag @Dormify and @Commandbrand.

DIY: Chic Ombre Flower Wall

STEP 1

First, decide what color flowers you would like to use for your ombre design, taking into account what hues will best accent your space. We also recommend keeping all of the flowers similar in size to help keep the overall look cleaner in appearance.

 

If you do choose to use flowers of various sizes, try to keeping them in a descending or ascending pattern according to how big they are.

STEP 2

Next, organize the layout of your strands. Choose how many rows of flowers you would like, as well as how long you want each row to be. We recommend around 10 rows, each consisting of 9 to 11 flowers. Each row should start with the darkest color and fade into the lightest color flower (or vice versa), and consist of somewhere between 9 to 11 flowers.

 

You can either have each string with the same number of flowers. To give a different dimension,  you can make the wall a little uneven by varying the number of flowers on each string.

STEP 3

Now, cut 10 pieces of clear string making sure they are all around the same length. Make sure to cut each string a few inches longer than you want the finished product to be, as the length of the string will shrink each time you go to fasten it on a flower.

STEP 4

You can now begin tying the flowers onto the string. Starting with the first planned out row of flowers, wrap the clear string around the area of the flower where the stem and petals meet and tie a double knot. If the flower does not feel sturdy around the string, you can wrap the string around a few of the bottom petals for more support. Always make sure to tie a second knot to ensure it stays taut.  

 

Leave about three inches of string before wrapping and tying the next flower. Continue with this step until all 9 to 11 flowers are tied onto the clear string.

 

**If your string is too short and you still have more flowers to add, rewrap and tie the last flower with a new piece of string and continue on with the new piece of string.

STEP 5

Following the directions on the back of the packaging, hang ten Command™ Clear Medium Hooks onto the upper wall in a horizontal line, keeping them equidistance. Finally, take each string of flowers and tie the top of each string in a double knot around each command hook.

 

Your chic ombre flower wall is now in full bloom!
