Flower cloud from dried flowers
Together with my girlfriend and stylist @suzannepardijs we made this “Cloudy of dried flowers” in my studio.
It is very nice to make these and not so difficult. Read below how to do it.
WORKSHOP ALERT: want to follow a workshop how to make a flower cloud? At 3 September 2022 I organize a workshop.
This workshop will be held in Dutch.
What do you need?
- a hammer
- 2 screw eyes / hooks
- a long branch preferably with some green on it
- branches with different greens
- dried flowers
- feathers like pampas grass
- other flowers or branches that you’d like to put in.
- wire netting
- pliers to cut chicken wire with
Turn the two screw eyes in the ceiling. Note: you have different ones for a wooden ceiling or a concrete ceiling.
Cut a piece of chicken wire with a good pair of pliers for this. Watch out for your hands, the cut pieces can be sharp. Take about 1 meter.
Hang the branch with ropes on the screw-eyes in the ceiling. Make sure it hangs straight.
Wrap the chicken wire around the branch. It doesn’t have to be symmetrical, just a convex shape is nice.
Now put several branches of green in the chicken wire. It can be positioned in any direction for a dynamic effect.
Tip: Use a color palette. We have opted for green and white, which also makes it look a little calmer.
