Made this for an event at our kids’ school. They were using a tropical islands theme and the only criteria they gave me was, “Something fun and pretty for photos!”
I wish I could say how many rolls of streamers I used, but I definitely lost count. There were bits and pieces of streamers ALL over our house.
Started with a mesh vegetable trellis kind of like this one. Mine was smaller, but I still had to trim it down to fit my backdrop stand. I attached it to the stand with zip ties.
Then I took bundles of streamers, folded them over each string in the mesh gride, and just stapled them to themselves along the top of each little bundle/section.
The flowers were a mix of patterns I hand cut and some I used from Cricut Access. They were HUGE! So fun to make. I got the leaves at Hobby Lobby.
Transporting it to the school was especially fun. I sped a bit in hopes I would get pulled over, but no such luck.
All setup and ready for the event.
In action with some friends!
And Jill Kimmel. Fun fact, Jill Kimmel is Jimmy Kimmel’s sister. She was the entertainer for the evening.
I gifted the big flowers to teachers at the school after the event. I love randomly seeing them in classrooms around campus now.
