How To Make A Floral Chandelier

Hello DIY Bride! Have you ever been to a wedding reception and the centerpiece is so large, you can’t see the people across the table from you? Are you wondering how to fill your wedding with lush floral arrangements while also avoiding this problem? Well, let’s talk hanging centerpieces! Maybe you’ve seen a floral chandelier on your favorite wedding blog, maybe you’ve even Pinned one. We are here to show you how easy (and fun!) these hanging centerpieces are to create!

Floral Chandelier

Materiels: Wire Wreath Form, Artificial Greenery, Silk Peonies, Silk Ranunculus, Artificial Berries & Filler Flowers, Floral Tape, Hot Glue/Gun, Wire Cutters, Ribbon

Floral Chandelier

Step 1: Lay out your greenery. Depending on how full the greenery spray you are using, you will need approximately 10 sprays to cover the top and the bottom of the wire wreath form.  For this chandelier, we used Lamb’s Ear and Eucalyptus. Begin by trimming the long stem from the bottom of the spray.  Use your wire cutters and leave around 4” of stem.

Step 2: Once the stems have been trimmed, you can start to secure the leaves to the wire wreath form using floral tape.  Hold the 4” stem to the inner wire of the wreath form.  Rip off a 6” piece of stem wrap.  Gently pull the tape and wrap it around the stem and the wire frame.

Step 3: Continue adding the lambs ear to the wreath, first working in a circle around the frame and then repeating the process on each of the rings of the wreath form.

Step 4: Flip the wreath over and repeat steps 2 and 3 on the opposite side of the wreath form.  Because this is a hanging chandelier you want to be sure that the wire wreath form is completely covered in greenery.  We used the Lamb’s Ear sprays first and then filled in any holes with eucalyptus to add depth and contrast.

Step 5: Add filler flowers as an accent throughout the chandelier.  We chose to use Astilbe for this

Step 6: Trim the flower heads from their stems using the wire cutters.

Step 7: Depending on how high over your table you will be hanging the wreath will determine where to glue the flowers.  If the chandelier will hang low over the table, be sure to glue flowers on both the top and the bottom of the wreath form.  If the chandelier will hang above guests heads, you will only need to focus on one side of the wreath form.  Use hot glue to attach the largest flower heads to the chandelier first and then add the smaller flower heads next.

Step 8: Add accent flowers and berries last.  This is a great way to give your chandelier subtle color.  We chose pink berries to compliment the burgundy flowers.

Step 9: When you are pleased with how full your chandelier is, you are ready to add the ribbon.  Cut three lengths of ribbon, the length will depend on how they will be hanging.  Tie one end of the first ribbon to the wire wreath form.  The leaves will cover the knots.  Tie the next ribbon one third of the way around the wreath form, repeat with the third ribbon.  This will create a triangle shape so that the chandelier will be balanced and hang evenly. Tie the three ribbons together and hang!

Mix and match your arrangement to feature your wedding flowers and colors.  You can even add hanging floral and greenery to add a little whimsy.  These chandeliers are very affordable and with silk flowers you will be able to use them to decorate your home after your event.  Not only could you turn it on it’s side and hang on your door, but these also make beautiful mobiles for a nursery.  The possibilities are endless!
