If you're looking for a fun way to decorate a chandelier for a celebration or holiday, I have a fun idea for you. I recently hosted a bridal shower and wanted to dress up my chandelier and I found an easy solution. Baby's breath! Let me show you what I did and how easy it was.
How To Decorate A Chandelier With Flowers
First, take an old sheet or old tablecloth and toss it over your table or on the floor under the chandelier. This will help catch any flower petals, branches or anything from landing on your table or floor.
This step will make cleaning up so much easier when you are finished. You will thank me when you are done.
Next on the agenda is opening all the flower bundles and pulling them apart. Baby's breath has a tendency to get knotted up. So gently pull them apart using your fingers to unthread them at the petals.
Once you have each stem pulled apart lay them on the table side by side.
Now take one bundle of flowers particularly one that has a full bundle on petals and put the petal end on one arm of the chandelier with the stem on the arm next to it.
Do not cut the stems at this point. We will finish two rows before cutting stems.
The heaviest part of the flower stem is the flower petals which is why it needs to sit on an arm. Think about using gravity to help you set the bundle on the chandelier and did I forget this project will take some patience. So give yourself plenty of time.
Repeat this step for each arm working in the same direction.
When you get to the last arm you can turn this stem around in the opposite direction so that you have a completed row on the bottom layer.
This is what the bottom row will look like once you are finished. Notice all the stems hanging out. That is okay because we will cut them later.
The second row is basically like the first row except adding the heavier petal part in the middle of the arms.
And now you can go ahead and clip the stems that are hanging out.
Next, grab a stem of baby's breath particularly a full one and cut the stem off and wrap the petals just under a candle on your chandelier.
Then take more flowers and cut the stems and fill in underneath.
Now continue to add filler pieces until between each arm looks similar or the same as the next one. For example, if one space between arms swoops at the top and bottom then make all the others the same.
