  • Flowers (paper, silk, or real)
    Tip: Use paper or silk flowers for a long-term decorative element or living flowers for a short-term event.
  • Contact paper
  • Circle cutter


  1. Cut 2-inch round circles from contact paper (Joy loves gold!).
  2. Test the contact paper on the area ahead of time to make sure it won’t harm the wall. Then use the sticky circles to adhere the blooms to the wall.
  3. Arrange however you like.
