Dress the Chair: Flower Garland


{Project wedding diy}

This gorgeous little garland is packed with “wow” power and will add a nice touch of elegant drama to your standard wedding chair. A perfect way to make the bride and groom stand out…just a little more.

Here is the easy-peasy how to:

Flowers that work well for this project:
Asters (pictured),
Chrysanthemums,
Roses or rose petals,
Carnations,
Marigolds

You will need:
About 10 -15 stems of fully opened flower blossoms (for a standard Chivari chair),
Fishline,
A Needle,
Scissors,
A spray bottle with water,
Ziplock bag,
Ribbon (around 2 yards)

1. Clip the stems off all the flowers so they can sit flat. Measure the width of your chair and times it by 2. For the standard Chivari chair that we used, we made about a 12″ garland

2. Cut a length of fishline to match your measurement. Thread a needle through the fishline and tie a knot at the end of it. Push the needle through the bottom of the flower and repeat. String together all the flowers until the garland is full.

Tip: Mist the garland with water and keep in the fridge overnight in a ziplock bag.
