Earlier this year, we changed out the flooring in our bedrooms and ever since, we’ve been working on putting the finishing touches in our kids’ rooms. Holly, who is currently 11, came up with a game plan for a mirror / artificial vine wall and we made it happen for under $30!
Here’s how we created this inexpensive artificial vine wall.
Holly had been seeing artificial vine walls pop up all over Instagram and TikTok, and was totally inspired. She wanted to keep her mirror and add a fun extra element that could also double as a photo backdrop.
Here’s what her wall looked like before…
We initially hit up the stores in our area to see what we could find. Dollar store vines are cheaper, but much less full and quite a bit shorter. At Michaels, the vines are much more expensive than would fit in my project budget. Naturally, we headed to my favourite place… Amazon!
Amazon.com seems have a ton of options as well, just read the reviews!
…and here’s what the artificial vine wall looks like now!
The pack we ordered comes with 12 strands at almost 7′ long each. They look significantly better than similar dollar store vines and hang beautify. The leaves and vine are very strong and have a nice texture as well. When the package arrived, I was a bit shocked by the overwhelming plastic smell, but it quickly went away after they had been aired out.
Hanging the vines was a bit more challenging than expected.
I didn’t want to spend any additional money or put holes in the wall, so we opted for tape. That didn’t work out at all – the vines are too heavy.
In the end, we opted to hot glue the vines to the wall. I tested it out and surprisingly, after the glue is dry is doesn’t peel off the paint. A small dab of hot glue and a finger press made these hold perfectly.
The Billie Eilish stickers featured on the mirror are also from Amazon. I ordered these ones specifically for around $10 and used them to surprise Holly with tickets to her concert (which ultimately got postponed). They were an awesome and inexpensive find.
