Making a flower rope garland

Making a flower rope garland

Tools and materials:
Wire cutters
Glue gun and glue sticks
Pretty ribbon, 1-2″ wide
Flower heads-silk, dried, or paper

First you’ll need to gather a bunch of flower heads. You can buy them all new, or salvage then from various projects. Now it’s up to you. You can color-coordinate your flowers, or make a pattern you like. I prefer to mix them. I think it gives a more Spring-like look to mix it up.


Take your time and glue the flowers in place as you like. You’ll want them close together as you don’t want to have too much ribbon showing. Hold it up once in a while as you go and see if you like how it’s turning out.

They look so Springy and easy going! They can be draped on mantles, mirrors, or frames. Use them as curtain tie backs or even glue them onto lampshades.

You’ll be surprised how these pretty flower ropes uplift your senses and remind you Spring is around the corner!
