Are you hosting a boho-chic garden party, adding a different vibe to your wedding decor, or simply sprucing up your living space with a floral elegance? Crafting your own flower garland is the perfect way to infuse a burst of colour and charm into any setting. And we know you’ll need our guide on how to make a gorgeous DIY flower garland. So, it’s time to grab your favourite blooms, cue up your playlist, and get crafty.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

First, collect the following supplies:

  • Assorted flowers
  • Lush greenery
  • Florist’s wire
  • Green florist’s tape
  • Twine, cut to your desired length

Pro tip: Opt for blooms that dry nicely and are not too delicate to maintain the garland’s longevity, like, ranunculus, roses, statice, chrysanthemums, and hypericum berries.

Step 2: Prepare the Base 

Lay out your twine on a clean surface, leaving approximately 6 inches on each end for hanging. Attach your pieces of greenery to the twine using small pieces of florist’s tape. Layer the greenery, spacing each piece a few inches apart to create a solid base for your garland.

Step 3: Bundle Your Flowers 

To streamline the process, prepare bundles of flowers before attaching them to the garland. Bundle four or five flowers together, trim the stems to 3-4 inches, and secure them with florist’s tape. Make enough bundles to cover the length of your garland, reserving some larger flowers to fill in any gaps later.

Step 4: Attach the Flowers 

Nestle each flower bundle into the greenery on the twine and secure it in place using the florist’s wire. Continue this process, evenly distributing the flower bundles along the length of the garland until you reach the end.

Step 5: Display Your Garland 

Once your garland is complete, it’s time to showcase your creation. Consider various display options such as using it as a table runner, adorning a bar cart, hanging it over an entryway, draping it on the mantle, or displaying it on the wall like a banner. 

Step 6: Enjoy Your Creation 


Sit back, admire your handiwork, and get ready to impress your guests with your vibrant, custom-made floral creations. Remember to prepare your garland the morning of your event for optimal freshness. Get creative and have fun with it – you will create a stunning centerpiece for any occasion. And who knows? You might even find yourself taking commissions for future celebrations.
