DIY THIS STATEMENT FLOWER CHANDELIER

Flower chandeliers are quickly becoming a popular centre piece for weddings, engagement parties and even bridal showers, and it’s easy to see why right?! Whether you’re planning a bridal shower, hosting an outdoor dinner party or celebrating an engagement, taking your floral displays to new heights not only looks amazing, but smells amazing too.

If you’d like to make a floral chandelier but don’t know where to start, then fret not because Pro Flowers are here today to teach us all how! Their step-by-step guide and video tutorial will guide you through making a flower chandelier but before you roll up your sleeves, let’s make sure you have all the materials you’ll need to get started.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Fresh flowers – When selecting flowers, have a theme in mind, consider which blooms are in season and also which flowers will hold up the longest without water. Fresh blooms of different types work well for this project. The florals you select should have long stems, this will make it easier to attach the flowers by threading them through the base.
  • Fresh foliage – Select fresh foliage that matches the theme of your chandelier.
  • Floral hoop – You’ll need a floral hoop to create the top tier of your chandelier. We recommend a hoop that is 19 inches in diameter, but you can choose any size, as long as it’s smaller than the large wire wreath.
  • Large wire wreath – A large wire wreath frame will act as the base of your chandelier. We recommend one that is 24 inches in diameter. If you’re not able to find a suitable wire frame, a hula hoop will work just fine. A green hoop is ideal for this project, but if you can’t find one, you can always paint it.
  • Floral tape – Floral tape is ideal for fresh flowers due to its strength and elasticity. It also comes in natural hues like greens and browns which blend well with flowers.
  • Floral wire – You’ll use floral wire to attach fresh flowers and foliage to your small hoop and large wire frame.
  • Fishing line – You’ll need fishing line to hang your chandelier. You can also opt for twine, string or ribbon if you’re going for a rustic or vintage feel.
  • Scissors – You’ll need to cut the tape and fishing line, so have scissors or a sharp knife handy.
  • Crimp tubes – You’ll use crimp tubes to secure your fishing line in place. These are small metal rings that will make it so your knots don’t slip out of the fishing line.
  • Pliers – Pliers will be used to secure the crimp tubes to the fishing line.

You guys, I’ve been dying to do a DIY like this for ages and I’m so excited that we finally got around to making 3D flower art! I’ve seen similar things over on Pinterest with thread or paper flowers but I wanted to really kick this project up a notch and use some beautiful fresh flowers! I love the idea of using photos from an engagement shoot, decorating it with fresh flowers and displaying your art at your wedding! It would look perfect by the escort cards or drinks station!

STEP 1:

Cut the stems off the flowers as close to the head as you can, you want the flowers to be able to sit flat on your photograph.

STEP 2:

Have a play around with how you’d like them to be arraigned and get a rough idea of which flowers you would like where.
