What You'll Need
- Fishing wire
- Floral wire
- Thick needle
- Chain and hook (we used jewelry chain)
- Wreath form
- Gold spray paint
- Flowers and greenery
Spray paint wreath form gold, and let dry. Add chain for hanging the wreath form; set aside. Start preparing the greenery. Using floral wire, wrap end of stem and create a loop for hanging.
Long flowering stems like stock, bluebells, and gladiolas are a great way to add length and color to your chandelier.
Cut most of the stem off of each large bloom; set aside. Cut fishing wire to desired chandelier length. Thread blooms with fishing wire through the back of stem. Keep the largest, heaviest blooms on the bottom.
We used a mix of daisies, mums, and spray roses to create this look. Try other statement blooms like carnations, dahlias, and ranunculus.
Attach greenery and blooms to the wreath form with fishing wire. To create a full look, start with the greenery, then add the threaded blooms to fill in gaps.
Pretty Party Decor
This fresh flower chandelier is best made the day of your party. To hang, balance the weight by gently moving the flowers and greenery. For a permanent chandelier, use fabric, silk, paper, or felt flowers.
