With preparations for the wedding season in full gear, you might be thinking of adding a unique floral piece to your event decor. I created a simple, hanging flower and moss chandelier for an upcoming photo shoot. The scene I visualized was an enchanted forest; a pastel vintage theme with earthy, floral elements accented with pale blues, greens and creams. I used cream rosettes, pale green hydrangeas and icy blue roses. I added green boxwood sprigs for added effect.
You can create a similar hanging wreath with your own selection of flowers and greens in just a couple of hours.
- glue gun/glue sticks
- twig wreath
- floral wire
- wire cutters
- flowers (I used silk, but fresh would work as well)
Using a glue gun, attach dried moss around the twig wreath.
Cut flowers (about 3 inches from base of flower) using wire cutters and insert inside twig wreath.
Cut three similar lengths of floral wire. I cut mine about two feet in length. Space wire evenly around wreath in 3 places. Slide wire beneath wreath and bring both ends up to meet. Twist wire to mimic a branch. Continue twisting until you reach about 2 inches from the end of the wire. Twist ends into a small loop. When you have completed all three ‘branches’, secure together with a small twist-tie. Make sure each ‘branch’ is similar in height.
Now your wreath is ready to hang, from an arbor, a tree branch, or anywhere you like.
