For the flowechild, the bridal shower, the photo backdrop (or home decor because this is definitely going in my house or studio), this DIY Garland Hanger has me smiling over its whimsy.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
-floral of your choice (preserved or fresh)
-branch (this one is approximately three and a half feet long)
-twine of your choice
-clear or floral tape
Sort Your Florals
For this hanger, I used three different florals per strand. On the middle one, I added a pop of color. You can use the same floral per strand or be creative and mix them up. Your preference.
Prep Your Wire Strands
Take your floral wire and twist the ends together like the photos below. You can make this as long or as short as you'd like depending on the amount of floral you have.
TIE YOUR TWINE
Take the twine of your choice and tie the hanger. You can alter the length of your twine hanger by adding more or less length. Tie a secure knot on each end of your branch.
SPACE OUT YOUR STRANDS
After you've twisted your wire strands out, space them out across your branch to your liking. Loop the wire strands around the branch like in the photo below.
START ADDING YOUR FLORAL
I used a combination of floral wire and tape to fasten my floral stems to the wire strands. Towards the top of the branch, I stuck to floral wire since it was the start of the strand and may show. As the strand got fuller as I continued down, it was easier to hide the floral wire and/or tape.
TAKE A STEP BACK
Step back and evaluate the fullness of your garland strands. Make sure the colors are balances and the fullness is even. You may need to go back and add more floral stems to some of your strands.
I wanted the middle strand to pop with some color, so after I got my main greenery in place how I liked it, I added a blush floral to the center strand.
THAT'S A WRAP
Now you have this dreamy little wall-art piece for a feminine and bohemian photo backdrop!
