New summer is here. There are flowers everywhere. I truly have waited for this. Let's make something very beautiful! But before that I tell you a bit how I got this DIY idea. For sometime now I've been following in instagram one talented lady Juliane who makes #onebouquetperday - Fröken Skicklig.

Once again she makes her sweet and delicate bouquets. Everyday there is a new one and so many different kind of flowers. She made a challenge in IG to join her and I decided to take the challenge and begun my #oneflowerchandelierperday for one week. But I thought I want to make also a blog post for you to enjoy. So here comes my flower chandelier DIY.

You can tie flowers together with thin thread or iron wire. You can also try to tie flowers together without anything else. It depends on how flexible stems are.

White small flowers with silvery stems. With Cerastium tomentosum, snow-in-summer flower I didn't have to use anything else than flowers.

Small adorable blue flower. Forget-me-not. I also made this only with flowers. Of course if the place where these decoration will be is outside, maybe wind too - you might want to be sure and use thread etc. to make sure your decoration will look beautiful and not falling apart.

But with Syringa, lilac I used thin thread to tie the branches on lampshade. The thing is that you can make your own design depending what kind of lampshade/shades and flowers you have. Only the sky is the limit.

If you know that the flowers have to last long you can use floral plastic water tubes for flowers but of course then you have to hide them. There are smaller and bigger tubes so that might help in this matter. Of course you can also use floral foam. Or just be sure your flowers have got enough water before you make your flower arrangement.

Most important thing with this DIY is having a good time with flowers and maybe friends too. It is sad that the time when we have a lot of flowers is so short. So why not take every joy out of it. Now! Take a pic! Put it in social media. It's there - maybe forever ;) If you want to see every chandelier I made go and see them in my instagram @kreettakreetta

Have fun and creative week! If you have holiday - enjoy and play with the flowers!

  1. This is looking really nice and I think I can use it for my wedding at Chicago event venues. It will be a rustic wedding and I am really excited for that. Please give some more helpful ideas for that.
