Materials needed:

– Wax flower (one letter at 10-12″ tall is about 2.5 bunches)
Galvanized steel wire (19 gauge)
Green floral wire (22 gauge)
– 1 roll green floral tape
Wire cutters
Floral shears
Ribbon for hanging (we used a beautiful silk ribbon)
Scissors

 

Directions:

Step 1: Take galvanized steel wire and hand form the letter you want to make. (Tip: Some letters like “C” are going to be easy, while others like “A” may require you to join two pieces of wire together. For our “K” we used the thinner gauge floral wire to join 2 pieces.)

Step 2: Prep your flower material. Cut wax flower blooms with your floral shears into roughly 3″ lengths.

Step 3: Gather 2- 3 stems of cut wax flower and make a little bundle in your hand. Take the floral tape and and wrap the blooms onto the wire letter while pulling the tape tightly around the wire and back onto itself. You can leave a small portion of the stems sticking out below the tape.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until you’ve covered the length of your wire letters. Each bundle should overlap so that you cover the previous bundles stems.

Step 5: Getting it ready to hang. Make a loop with your green floral wire and attach it in the center of your letter. String a beautiful coordinating ribbon through your loop and hang on a chair back, on a door, or wall! (Tip: Some letters will require more finesse than others to hang straight, so make sure you think about gravity and where makes most sense to place your loop.)
