Hot glue gun
Clear fishing line
Small nails or pushpins
Wire cutters

Directions:

  1. Start by cutting your flowers off the bouquets to make them individuals. They have wire stems so it is easiest to use wire cutters. I used my handy dandy needle nose pliers with the cutter in the center and it worked just fine. Try to cut them as close to the end (where all the stems gather) as possible. Then separate the flowers by color for organization.
  2. Using your glue gun, put a dab of glue on the tip of the stem of a flower and then place that stem in the center petals of the flower you want to glue it to. If you have flowers like my teal ones that have the shape of sunflowers, you will need to glue some petals around the stem of the flower on top of it so that it stays together. If you glue it to just the center part, it will fall apart later on.

4. Once you have your flower strands made, you can hang them by tying a loop around the top flower head with fishing line. Then place a small nail or push pin into your wall near the ceiling and hang the fishing line on it. It is hard to notice the nail and fishing line and it will look like your flowers are just floating there. To secure my flowers even more, I just added a piece of tape that matched my wall color on the very bottom stem at the bottom of the strand and taped it to the wall. It’s not necessary but I liked the way it kept the flowers in one place. With my pillows in front, you can’t even see the tape.
