Your big day is right around the corner. A flower chandelier is a great way to pinch the pennies and add a little elegance.
The tools you are going to need are simple. You will need to have a floral frame ring. The size of it is up to you. For this example a 20in floral frame was used. You will also need a ribbon. The ribbon should be about 1 ½ inches thick. Then you are going to need an organza ribbon so you can string the flowers. After that you will choose the flowers you are going to want to use. Crystals are also an option as an additional touch.
- 20 inch floral ring
- One sided ribbon (1 ½ thick)
- ½ organza ribbon
- Flowers of choice (silk flowers are preferred)
- Crystals (optional)
The first step is to take the floral ring and the single-sided ribbon. You are going to use a glue-gun (your best choice for this type of project) to help wrap the single sided ribbon around the floral ring. Once done wrapping the floral ring you are ready to move on to the next step.
The second step is to take hold of the organza ribbon and get a pair of scissors so you can cut the organza ribbon. You are going to want the strips to be about 32 inches a piece for a 20 in floral ring.
Next, tie knots with the organza ribbon. Make sure you are tying the knots at the bottom of the organza ribbon. This is so you can attach crystals if you choose to. If you decide you are going to use crystals go ahead and slide them on after you tie the knots. Once you have slid the crystals onto the organza ribbon, move on to step four.
The fourth step is to start gluing the flowers together. After you have decided which flowers fit your theme (it is strongly recommended that you use silk so the flowers will last) you will attach 4 to 5 flowers to each side of each knot. Let them sit for a good 5-10 minutes to dry. Once dry then you can start on step five.
Take the organza ribbon and tie it along the floral frame. Make sure that the length is consistent with the length of the floral frame. As a final step, apply glue to the remaining flowers. You will apply them outside the floral frame this time. Once you are done with applying the rest of the remaining flowers to the floral frame, let it dry. Then you have successfully made a flower chandelier.
