Want to create a DIY flower garland for your next special occasion?
I assembled a different kind of "centerpiece” for my family's Christmas dinner this year. This project is really easy to do with just a few supplies and fresh, dried, or faux flowers.
Read on to learn how!
SUPPLIES YOU NEED
- Flowers (You could use fresh, dried, or faux. I used fresh carnations.)
- Fishing line
DIY FLOWER GARLAND INSTRUCTIONS
- Trim the flowers off the steams so you are left with just the flower heads.
- Tie a knotted loop at one end of a long piece of fishing line.
- With your needle, thread the line and sew through the flower whichever way you’d like it to hang (upside-down, right-side up, on its side).
- Leave some space and tie another knotted loop and add another flower.
- I did 12 four foot long strands of about 10 flowers and then laid the middle of the strand over our chandelier so about 6' of garland fell on either side of the chandelier.
- Keep in mind that if you lay the strand across something, one half of the strand will need their knotted loops on the other side of the flower head.
- Trim any ends that are too long or any loops that are too big.
