How to make a flower wall

Create with paint! Projects by Habitat by Resene

Create your own flower wall

Flower walls are perfect for baby showers, birthdays and hen's parties, and make a beautiful backdrop for special occasion photographs. You can create this flower wall in an afternoon, using Resene testpots and coffee filters (yes, you read that right!).

You will need: Resene testpots in Resene Lola, Resene Galliano and Resene Suzie Q, testpot brushes, coffee filters (available at most supermarkets), garden wire and tape, string to hang the flowers.

Tip: Have fun with different colourways to suit the theme of your celebration.
