Today's DIY follows on from yesterdays carnation garland, with a beautiful rose garland to add to your chair back. These just look so beautiful hanging from the chairs, or draped over tables and light fixtures. They will keep for a few days if you mist them with water.
Things you will need for this DIY:
Your flowers, (I got mine from the discount buckets in Morrisons, they were much cheaper, and as I knew they wouldn't last too long I wasn't fussed on them being perfect, there were three stems that I threw away but the rest were beautiful roses ready for this diy!), some pretty string, scissors, ribbon.
Gather your roses and cut them stems so there is about 2 inches of stem left, this is what you will tie your garland together with, so if the stems are too short, they might fall off.
Using your pretty string (As it might be seen when the garland is made!) start to tie your flowers together.
I liked the look of bunches of three flowers together. You could add a little loop of string to the ends to hang them up elsewhere if you didn't want them on a garland, or just cut the string off.
Keep tying your flowers together in little bunches. Have a play around with the colours to see what you like best. I love how the blooms look so open and full, a real reminder that a summer garden full of roses can't be beaten!
Gather your ribbon together and tie each little bundle of flowers onto it. I liked mine with large gaps in between each bundle, but you could pop them right next to each other to make the garland look fuller.
Ta Dah! It's finished! YAY!
All you need to do now is drape it over your chair back, or table, and admire it's beauty!
