Make This Giant Mirror Floral Frame with a DIY Hula Hoop
Raise your hand if you keep a mental (ahem, Pinterest) list of DIY projects you want to make! This giant floral frame with a diy hula hoop was one of them for me. I wanted to make a frame that I could use to dress up this giant round mirror I have, but nothing permanent that’d ruin the frame. Something I could use for a party or shoot and hang on its own too.
That’s what I’m sharing today! This giant floral frame using various silk flowers from Afloral is everything I love and look for when I consider creating a DIY: easy, breezy, beautiful. Flower Girl.
What you’ll need:
Large piece of cardboard
Fiskars Pipe cutter
I created a giant floral frame that fits onto my giant round mirror. It perfect fits around the frame of the mirror so it’s easily removable. I can use it to decorate my mirror or as a giant wreath, so this twofer project is totally worth it and definitely doable.
How to make a giant hula hoop
Guys. GUYS. This is how to make hula hoops, in any size you want! Get a roll of PEX pipe and connectors of the same size. Cut the length you want, connect the ends and use duct tape around the connector. Done and done. Giant hula hoop coming right up!
The DIY hula hoop served as the frame that fits around the mirror.
With a large piece of cardboard (I used the box that mirror came with), I free-style a large round frame with scissors.
Get hula hooping out of your system. It’s mandatory you hula hoop before you continue. Hot glue the cardboard frame on the hoop.
Floral Frame Recipe
You’ll want to look for bundles so you get more flowers per bush that range in large to medium size. I used a lot of leftover flowers I was saving from the DIY bouquets I’ve been sharing, so you can reuse all clippings you save for this.
You can use the small buds from these brushes to fill in the gaps.
Here are the flowers I used:
Pink peonies (I used 3 bushes)
Ranunculus in orange
Ranunculus in yellow
Rose in yellow
Ranunculus in white
Roses in cream
Protea in orange
Cut flower heads and randomly glue them onto the frame. There’s no right or wrong way to do it, just cover the whole frame!
