It's summer, and flowers are suddenly appearing everywhere, not just in nature, but also in DIY projects all over the internet. Flower bombing — covering things in faux (or real!) flowers, is the latest trend, and it's a great way to get a huge impact while spending not a lot of money. Read on to find out how you can transform pretty much anything own with the magic of flowers.

And further inspiration: Walls covered in flowers at Dior's Autumn/Winter 2012 show. Fabulous, yes, but also very expensive. But don't you just want to lay your face on it?

Not a DIY, but a roof covered in flowers from Paris teahouse Lily of the Valley, spotted on Yellowtrace. If you're feeling inspired to create something like this (maybe in a small space like an entryway), I would recommend covering the ceiling in a layer of foam first, and then sticking the faux flowers into the foam. And then sending us pictures.

Here's a clever and somewhat cheeky idea: adding faux flowers to a floral painting, for just a little extra texture. Image from Scarlet Plan + Design.

I'm not gonna lie — my very favorite flower bombing project is this Christmas tree from Design Love Fest, whose flower-adorned boughs are not quite like anything I've ever seen before. What better way to express the magic of Christmas, which in its essence is a holiday about hope and the renewal of life? Definitely save this one for December, or for sooner — we won't judge.
