The Look:

Step 1: Take your pearl garland and loop the strand three times.

Step 2: Use floral wire to secure the loops at the top. Ensure that the wire you use is long enough that you can then use it to secure the garland to your chair.

Step 3: Attach the pearls to your chair by wrapping the floral wire around the chair frame. Leave the wrap a little bit loose so that you can insert your flowers afterwards.

Step 4: Cover the floral wire by tying a strand of ribbon around it. Again, keep it loose so that you have room for your flowers.

Step 5: Give a more layered, textured effect by adding another strand of ribbon.

Step 6: Insert the water picked roses behind the ribbon and wiring, using enough flowers to create a pretty bunch. Here we’ve used two water picks, each with 2 to 3 stems of spray roses.

Step 7: Using its included wire backer, attach your medium-sized lace flower to your ribbon. Try and position it so that it covers the water picks.

Tips:

  • We used spray roses for this project because they have multiple blooms per single stem.
  • Make each loop on your pearl garland a different length. This will give a great variety.
  • We made sure to not use too many flowers lest the decoration looked bulky.

You can, of course, choose your own materials! Choose your own ribbon colour and style, or replace the ribbon altogether with lace, hessian, burlap, or any other material you’d prefer. Plus you don’t have to use pearls. Imagine how this design could shift from Vintage to Glamorous or Art Deco by simply replacing pearls (or adding to them?) with crystal garlands, charms, jewels, or strings of lights!

Also, you could get any number of stunning results by using different flowers. Perhaps mix and match them, and experiment with how many you would like to use or how spread out you would like your chair decoration to be. More bountiful bunches could look wonderful!

Furthermore, you could add a dazzling sparkle to your decoration by using crystal needles. See our DIY article A Touch of Glamour with Sparkling Wedding Bouquets for more on this, as well as the option of artificial wedding flowers!
