D.I.Y. Flower Chair Garland

This post comes to you from

Garlands are lovely on the bride and groom chairs, or made longer for a centerpiece or hanging garland. You won't believe how easy they are to make! 
Flowers that work well for this project:
Asters (pictured), Chrysanthemums, Roses or rose petals, Carnations, and Marigolds
You will need:
About 10-15 stems of fully opened flower blossoms (for a standard Chivari chair), Fishing line, A Needle, Scissors, A spray bottle with water, Ziplock bag, Ribbon (around 2 yards)

Clip the stems off all the flowers so they can sit flat. Measure the width of your chair and times it by 2. For the standard Chivari chair that we used, we made about a 12" garland. 

Cut a length of fishline to match your measurement. Thread a needle through the fishline and tie a knot at the end of it. Push the needle through the bottom of the flower and repeat. String together all the flowers until the garland is full.  
Tip: Mist the garland with water and keep in the fridge overnight in a ziplock bag.
