Step 1: Prep Hanging Flower Stems

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 the end of the 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.

Step 2: Thread Hanging Flower Heads

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 the 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.

Step 3: Assemble Chandelier and Hang

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. Finish your chandelier by weaving fresh greenery around the top ring to cover the wreath form. Secure greenery with florists wire or tape. 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.
