summer floral and fern garland

This vibrant floral and fern garland is the perfect accent for the summer season. The realistic feeling, tones and shapes of the flowers and garland will be admired by all!
Step 1

Cut several pieces of floral wire about 4" [10.16cm]. These will be handy when you begin wiring on the floral to the garland.

Step 2

Lay the two garlands next to each other on a table. Intertwine them together and use some floral wire to hold them in place.

Step 3

Cut off sections of fern and lay them along the garland making sure to drape them in the same direction. Wire the pieces to the garland.

Step 4

Next, position the large blooms around the garland alternating them as you work. Attach the flowers to the garland with floral wire.
TIP: The back of the large floral bloom has a loop that makes it easy to hang.

Step 5

Position the floral stems around the garland and use the wire to hold them in place. Bend the stem so it looks loose on the garland.
TIP: This garland can hang vertically or horizontally and will be a dramatic accent to any decorating.
