Transform inexpensive silk flowers into delicate garlands. Just dismantle the blooms to separate the layers of petals, removing any greenery. Overlap edges of petals slightly, and join them using dabs of hot glue. Then glue beads in centers to cover stem holes. String garlands along aisles, at the altar, or across chair backs.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

how do you string these?

We made these for my daughter's bridal shower to decorate the backs of the chairs.. I used narrow green ribbons as a backing for the flowers and beads. It made it sturdier and gave it the look of stems!

We are doing something similiar. I am getting married outside under a pergola. We will be hanging ribbons and glueing silk flowers to some of them.

to save money we are doing our own flowers for our outdoor wedding, too. we are buying direct from a local grower and arranging them in mason jars (if were having the reception inside, we'd buy inexpensive vases.) this is another way to save a ton of money! we'll use this garland idea for the ceremony site!

I'm doing this for sure! I'm doing all floral arrangements myself (with the help of bridesmaids) and I loved the idea of garlands for a while. I wasn't sure if real flowers would last long enough for the wedding since I'd have to make them way ahead of time, so these silk-flowers are perfect!

So these are not connected to string or anything? If any one has done them please let me know how well it held up

This seems like a really neat idea. I want to have flowers in my decor but I don't have a flower budget and I'm really skeptical about silk flowers... but I think this could look nice. Has any one actually tried it?

These are so cute. I am using them to decorate the bar area for my reception and at first I wasn't sure about them because I'm not really a fan of artificial flowers, but these are great!!!
