SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1 66" Boxwood garland
  • 1 Ranunculus bush, white
  • 2 Green spray cabbage roses
  • 2 Stems peach/yellow daisies
  • 1 33" Spray foam berry stem orange
  • 1 Spray mini flower, white
  • 1 Short fern hanging bush
  • 3 yds Dotted swiss mesh fabric
  • 1 Spool Save the Date 1.5"x 30" satin ribbon
  • Wire cutters
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
  • 24 gauge wire

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut Boxwood garland in half and flip one piece so that the greenery is flowing in the same direction.
  2. Wire the garland back together to form one long piece.
  3. Lay the garland in an upside down “U” shape and decide where the floral will lay in each corner.
  4. Separate the ranunculus from the main stem, leaving the top greens attached to the stem. Use one larger floral head and one smaller floral head for each corner. Cut the cabbage rose from its stem leaving only an inch or two of stem attached to the flower. Trim the leaves from the stem and set aside.
  5. Remove three of the peach daisies to use in each corner.
  6. Place all the floral in the garland. Hot glue the floral to the garland to attach.
  7. Add green leaves from the rose and ranunculus stems. Hot glue to attach.
  8. Separate the white mini flowers from the main stem, leaving the flowers in clusters. Repeat this for the berry stems.
  9. Insert these into the arrangement and hot glue to attach.
  10. Trim off two pieces of hanging fern for each corner. Insert these pieces toward the bottom of the floral arrangement and let hang on top of the garland. Use the hot glue to attach these to the garland.
  11. Add small stems or pieces of mini white flowers and the berries to the top of the arrangement.

  12. FABRIC
  13. Lay dotted swiss fabric out on the ground or a long table and cut 2 strips of fabric 6" wide by length of garland. Use the gold wire to tie the fabric to each side of the garland. The fabric will attach on each corner where the clusters of floral are placed on the garland.

  14. HANGING SIGN & RIBBON
  15. The sign was custom cut using a Glowforge®.*Cut 2 strips of ribbon to the length of the garland. Then cut both of these ribbons in half so you have 4 strands of ribbon all the same length.Lightly burn all ends of the ribbon to keep it from fraying. Use hot glue to attach the ribbon to each side of the signs.Attached the ribbons to both sides of the garlands in the same spot that fabric was placed. Use the floral wire to attach the garland to the chair. Double the wire for more stability. Tie ribbon over it to cover the wire on the chair.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • Work side by side to ensure that the garland is matching and flowers are lined up in a similar fashion.
  • Lay a piece of cardboard or paper under the garland to catch any glue that may drip from the piece.
  • Cut Boxwood garland in half and flip one piece so that the greenery is flowing in the same direction.
