If you’ve been around my neck of the internet any bit of time, you know my entryway has a floral wall installation that gets a makeover a few times a year! I’m back with the latest edition a peachy spring version!
This all started a few years ago I did a lovely floral ombre wall hanging in my entryway. It was so fun to create and it’s totally unique to me! Nobody would ever have replica in their home!
Since that one was very heavy focused on fall/winter florals, I gave it a refresh that next summer. So I did a little upgrade and made a new, summery one that was all greenery with a splash of flowers.
Last fall I yet again switched things up again with a more fall/wintery explosion of floral. It was my biggest and easiest wall hanging since I discovered chicken wire!
The first two that I made I put them up with command hooks. While that worked for the first one, the second one didn’t stay up quite as long as the I had hoped it would and fell down before I had planned.
Enter, chicken wire!
Chicken wire made a HUGE difference in not only how well it held up but also the ease of actually putting it up!
I was able to reuse the chicken wire from the fall wall hanging so it made this project even easier!
If you want to do one of these in your home, here’s how to do it!

Here’s what you’re going to need if you want to make one of these yourself.
1. Chicken Wire
This is the one big change from my other wall hangings. Skip the command hooks (like I used previously) and get chicken wire!
2. Hammer & Nails
You’ll need a hammer and small nails to nail the chicken wire to the wall. I used 6 total nails. I put 4 in each corner and then 2 in the middle.
3. An Assortment of Dried Floral
You’ll want to get a LOT of this. I also picked up 2 or 4 of each kind of flower to give it a cohesive looks and feel.
Wall Hanging Tutorial
And here is how you do it!
1. Measure the area of your wall
You’re going to want to first figure out how big you want your wall hanging. Mark it off on the floor so you can prep your design.
2. Plan Your Design
Before you just start things on the wall, it helps to plan out your design a bit! I always prep mine on the floor to give myself a general look and feel as to what it’s going to look like.
3. Cut and Hang Your Chicken Wire
Keep in mind, you don’t need to have enough chicken wire to cover the entire spot you’re planning on covering. You will likely have pieces of floral hanging off the edges so plan for that.
I put nails on all the corners as well in the center to keep it tight. Just a note, mine didn’t lay totally flat but it totally worked!
4. Start Hanging
Start with the outside pieces and move your way in. You’ll want to place a few florals in and then step back and look at it.
If you don’t have a buddy to help you, that’s ok too! Using the chicken wire makes it incredibly easy to remove it and put it in a different spot.
With almost every single one of my installations, I have severe doubts that it will actually turn out. I also have to pull out pieces and readjust a lot. This isn’t something that you’ll get right the first time!
Be open to switching things, moving things and adjusting thing. Take your time and have patience. You’ll get there!
I hope this helps you make your very own unique wall hanging in your home! You can check out the other two posts for more inspiration as well fall floral wall installation (#1) and summery green floral wall hanging and my second edition of a fall floral installation!
