Here are some tips about how to make this favorite childhood craft work for a wedding! These pretty garlands can be used as flower crowns for the bride, bridesmaid, or flower girls or as centerpieces, chair decorations, or strewn across your reception hall. Cost is around $10 per 3 foot garland.
Clippers or box cutter
Floral tape (optional)
- Clip the stems shorter or longer, depending on how full you want the garland. Short for full, long for more sparse.
- Make a slit in the stem of each daisy with a box cutter or your fingernail.
- Attach them to each other by poking each stem through the slit so the blossom rests on the stem.
- Secure with floral tape if needed.
- Spritz with water, wrap garlands in cellophane and keep in fridge overnight.
Tips: You must use daisy chrysanthemums which are available through grocery stores and florists. Wildflowers or marguerite daisies will not hold up. Make the day before or morning of.
Buy it: Any florist in the mywedding.com directory could help you.
