  • 5-foot-long piece of durable, colored string

  • Assorted flowers—stems cut—that dry nicely
  • Roll of twine (no wider than 1 mm), cut into 2- to 5-foot lengths 
  • Hot glue gun

1. Take string and knot it at both ends of the stick, checking to make sure there’s enough slack to hang the stick and the garlands from the wall once the project is complete.

2. Create the garlands by taking a flower and one length of twine. Tie a double knot around the stem near the base of the blossom, preferably under a set of leaves, so the string is slightly hidden. Repeat, tying flowers at equal intervals apart from each other. If you want the flowers to overlap, tie them closer together, until the length of twine is covered, resembling a lei.

Note: If you can’t tie a sturdy knot, add a dollop of hot glue over the knot to secure it.

3. Repeat step 2 until five to seven garlands are complete.
