I found this on Amazon and it’s exactly the look I was wanting for my Arbor decor. I was going to DIY with artificial florals anyway, and from my research I was thinking it would be about the same cost of this. Do you think this is a good deal or could I DIY it cheaper ?!

I'd research your fabric carefully before you decide to DIY. Yes, tulle is super cheap, but it is also so sheer that it is almost invisible unless you use many layers. Trust me -- I made that mistake when attempting to swag banquet tables with it for a 50th anniversary party. I had 50 yards to work with, and it still pretty much disappeared.... For the fabric to look more substantial, like it does in your inspiration photos, I think you'll be happier with chiffon or a gauze-like fabric. You can still get those at a decent/on-sale/with a coupon price, but they'll be more expensive than tulle. Before you decide, I'd go to Joann's or Hobby Lobby and look at fabric so you have a clearer idea of what it's going to cost to make your own. If the product is actually as shown, I think $69 is a pretty good deal to have all the work done. Good luck!
You could probably do it cheaper DIY, but sometimes it’s worth paying for convenience. Lol! This is beautiful and as Michelle mentioned above, it’s one less thing you’d have to worry about and you could use the time you would have taken to make this to do or work on something else.
Unless you plan to keep it as home decor, it's more economical to rent one from a party rental business or florist. You have to factor in labor and time of DIY, transportation, setup/teardown and trying to resell it. Renting is much cheaper in the long run. That applies to everything: linens, chairs, centerpieces, etc.
