Floral Frame Crafting and Display Tips
If you want photos of beaming wedding guests, have them pose with a frame all prettily abloom! Choose a style below that catches your fancy—fully covered in blooms or only partially, dainty or over-sized, with a tropical vibe or a South Asian motif. Then, see our crafting tips and “where to buy” links below!
Tip #1 – Get a set of frames to suit your chosen wedding style.
Determine how many you will need and in what sizes, too. Then, check out online sites like ebay, Craigslist, or our suggested links below. Or visit thrift shops, yard sales, or even your own attic or garage!
Tip #2 – Decide what type of flowers you prefer.
Real fresh blooms? (You could ask your florist to decorate a frame or two as part of your wedding package.) Faux craft-store florals or DIY paper ones ?
Tip #3 – Prepare the other materials will you need.
To attach the flowers to the frame, have on hand a glue gun, wire, string, tape, florist’s foam (if you plan to use fresh blooms). To adorn the finished frame, you may add paint (if parts of the frame will be exposed), ribbon, glitter and other accent touches if desired.
Tip #4 – Plan where to hang the frame(s) in your reception venue.
On a free-standing rack? From a door frame, if indoors? From a tree branch, if outdoors? Be sure it’s in a spot that’s easily accessible to guests and has great lighting.
Tip #5 – Have guests pose and snap away!
Hanging the frames on stands or from a tree is fine. But it seems the biggest smiles come when guests simply hold the frame up and strike a flowery pose!
