Floral Chandelier How-To
1. Wrap the floral ring with the single-faced ribbon using the glue gun to attach at the start and finish.

2. Cut the organza ribbon into 32-inch strips.

3. Tie knots in the bottom of the organza ribbon (you can attach crystals at this time).

4. Glue 4 or 5 flowers to each side of the knot.

5. Tie the organza ribbon to the floral frame, constantly making sure they are all equal in length.

6. Glue remaining flowers to the outside of the floral frame.
