How to Make a DIY Hanging Flower Chandelier Wreath

For your next celebration, whether a dinner party, bridal or baby shower or even a birthday, consider moving your floral centerpiece off the table and up, with a hanging flower chandelier! Maybe you’ve seen a floral chandelier on your favorite blog; perhaps you’ve even Pinned one – today, let me show you how easy (and fun!) these beautiful focal points are to make!

We all know I LOVE a gorgeous table setting, and for me, large, lush centerpieces are the jewel of a beautiful table. You too? Well, then you know the risk of a centerpiece being so enormous, that you can’t see the people across the table from you! Luckily for us, there is a solution – a hanging centerpiece!

For our recent Easter table, I decided to move the action “up” and wow, what a focal point! The hanging flower wreath stole the show, with its abundance of blooms. Using faux flowers ensured it no mess and less fuss. It was a snap to make, and fun, too! With such a simple project, you can add the same elegance to ALL of your celebrations – Let me show you how I made it.

How to Make a DIY Hanging Flower Chandelier Wreath

You Will Need:

flower chandelier - materials

  • Floral wire – You’ll use floral wire to attach fresh flowers and foliage to your small hoop and large wire frame.
  • Flowers and Greenery – see note below for selection ideas
  • Wire Cutters
  • A Foam ring
  • Fishing line – if suspending the wreath outside of chandelier

Flower selections:

I used about 10-12 large blooms such as peonies, dahlias, and hydrangeas and filled in the gaps with smaller flowers such as roses and large chrysanthemums. Other ideas include:

  • Pink Hyacinths
  • Carnations
  • Amaranthus
  • Hydrangeas
  • Baby’s Breath
  • Craspedia
  • Peonies

Greenery Tips:

Any greenery with a drooping nature, such as a fern, would be a good selection. I used both greenery stems, as well as a greenery garland that I picked up at Michael’s with a 40% off coupon – love those!

What to D0:

Cut the stems of your flowers and greenery to about 2-2 1/2″ long and divide them into size.

Suspend your form first – it’ll be so much easier! Using four lengths of floral wire, attach your foam wreath form to the bottom of your chandelier, and twist the wire to secure.

Begin by wrapping your greenery garland loosely up and through, and all the way around your wreath form,

Add your greenery stems (drooping) evenly around the ring, by pressing the stems into the foam. Alternate placing them on the top and bottom, beginning to fill in the gaps between the greenery garland.

Now, add your large blooms. Mix up the colors and alternate placing them between the top and bottom of your form, in between the greenery. You’ll want to space them about 5-6″ apart.

Use your smaller flowers to fill in any gaps.

Stand back. Oooo and Awwww. Everyone else will be!

How to use Vibrant Florals for Sweet, Enchanting Easter Table Decorations

Posted in HOLIDAYS, spring, TABLE SETTINGS, Tablescape
on March 21, 2018

Want to set a whimsical Easter table but want to keep the bunnies and chicks to a minimum? Here’s how to use vibrant florals in your Easter Table Decorations for a sweet, enchanting table.

Easter Table Decorations

Styling tablescapes throughout the year have become something I look forward to. Tablescapes are simple to put together, you can typically use what you have around the house, and I love how they help to immerse me in the holidays. There might be snow outside but inside; it’s all Easter! A few times a year I join  Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate for a Blog Hop where we all share our latest themed tablescape, and it’s time for our Spring Tablescape Blog Hop!

HOW TO USE VIBRANT FLORALS FOR SWEET ENCHANTING EASTER TABLE DECORATIONS

I’ve set a pastel Easter table setting, with vibrant tones,  to give you inspiration for your own Easter celebration. A little unusual for me, I stayed pretty traditional to Easter with the table setting but added a modern accent with the floral chandelier wreath full of color and romantic style.

THE ROOM

Although we usually have holiday meals in our dining room, Easter is typically more of a brunch for us – our breakfast area is lovely for that, with all kinds of natural light!

FLORAL CHANDELIER WREATH

The pendant light above our table is precisely right for this look, with its graceful arms and I love how the wreath sits just below the shade, letting a little light peek out between, highlighting the blooms.
Spring to me is all about color as everything comes alive – reds, blues, corals, yellows, and pinks all blend with teardrop greenery.

The floral wreath is such an easy project that makes a huge impact! A floral chandelier wreath is lovely for any gathering where you want to add a bit of romance. I’ll be posting instructions on how you can make one tomorrow – be sure to drop by for that!

THE CENTERPIECE

Because of the grandiose nature of the wreath above the table, I kept the centerpiece simple. A paper mache bunny of white with a gold nose is surrounded by fresh blooms from my garden and a myriad of decorated eggs – some ornate, some simple.

THE TABLE COVERINGS

I went with a natural table and a buffalo check table runner made from my napkin stash. I love how the blue adds a punch of color to the otherwise simple table covering and highlights the blues in the floral wreath.

THE PLACE SETTINGS

The settings are kept simple to not take away from the real stars of the table – the flowers.

You may recognize my DIY Painted-Pink dinner plates from our Christmas table. I’m still madly in love with them and have found them surprisingly versatile. Of course, in writing this I’ve realized that I’ve yet to share a tutorial on how I made them – I’m on it!

Simple white salad plates crown the pink dinnerware.

Royal blue napkins and vintage handkerchiefs tied with a tulle bow accented with a pretty butterfly clip complete the setting.

THE EXTRAS

We haven’t decided what we’ll be serving for brunch, but it will include refreshing fresh lemonade with lemon slices in tall glasses.

And, of course, no Easter celebration is complete without hot cross buns!

I can’t wait for Easter and the feeling of a new beginning that comes along with it. But mostly, I look forward to spending time with and making memories with my family.

How to Make Floral Egg Stand Easter Decorations

A unique idea for displaying your Easter Eggs!  Take your Easter Eggs to a new level and create a Spring Garden Scene with easy to make Floral Egg Stand Easter Decorations. 

egg stand Easter Decorations

Happy 2nd Day of Spring! Snow is in our forecast tomorrow – will it never end?! Rather than focus on yet another snow day, I’m choosing to set my sights on my Easter Decorations. Sort of. I’m still not sure whether to go with the Carrot Wreath, the Spring Wreath or just to go with something entirely new on the front door. It’s too cold for flowers – at least real ones. And, I haven’t started dying eggs this year – much to my youngest’s dismay (he’d dye them all year long if he could!). I have, however, pulled out some of my faux Easter eggs and was looking for a new way to display them that wouldn’t break the bank. These adorable floral egg stands are super easy to make with things you likely have around the house or can pick up at the dollar store – tissue paper, glue and a tp roll!

A few funny TP side stories:

  1. I’ve recently switched to the tubeless toilet paper, and it’s severely cutting into my crafting TP stash! I’m just short of begging friends, family, and neighbors to fork their’s over.
  2. I LOVE commercials, and the new Charmin bath tissue jingle is on constant replay in my head. “My hiney’s so Charmin shiny!” is likely TMI. But. I. Can’t. Stop. Singing. It. And now, neither can you – you’re welcome.

But.. that’s enough of my TP stories – Back to the project. It’s a quick one!

How to Make Floral Egg Stand Easter Decorations

 

Materials:

egg stand Easter Decorations - Materials

  • Tissue paper
  • TP roll
  • Hot Glue and Gun

 

Directions:

Flower Petals

Stack 6-7 layers of tissue paper, in your desired flower color, and cut a 2-inch section from the longest side of the stack.

Accordion fold the 2-inch strip and cut a deep scallop on end through all layers. Separate layers and put them aside.

Cut a 2-inch section from your TP roll.

With the TP roll on its side, place a vertical line of hot glue from edge to edge and adhere a piece of colored tissue to the roll. Continue gluing this piece around the ring, pulling the taut as you go.

Add another layer of tissue paper, this time adding a dot of glue on the bottom edge of the of the roll, about a half an inch from the seam of the first layer, but this time, place your thumb under the tissue between glue spots, to adhere the paper loosely. This will allow you to feather the petals when completed.

Continue adding the remaining layers, edging up the side ever so slightly as you go – the outside petals on a flower are more substantial and you want to mimic that.

Flower Leaves

Next, cut a 2-inch strip of the dark green tissue paper. Accordion fold this trip and make small slits along the top, cutting about 3/4 of the way down. Add the green tissue paper “leaves” along the bottom edge, tucking the edge under slightly to for a finished look. Gently pull apart the petals to fluff.

Admire. Or, make more!

Endless Options

The color combinations are endless! I made an ombre option using gradient shades of the same color. You can also mix colors or even use patterned tissue paper for a completely different look.

I love that you can use these adorable floral egg stand Easter decorations in multiple ways – I’ve used them as both an Easter egg display stand and as a napkin rings for my Easter table. I also love that they are an easy enough project to do with my Easter lovin’ kid – pretty for Mommy + Easter egg fun = Eggcellent Easter!
