strung floral garland

Hanging floral heads make a beautiful backdrop to any special event. This is a simple way to use faux floral so you can enjoy the look for weeks.
Step 1
Cut the floral heads off of the bush with wire cutters.
Step 2
Establish the length of garland you may need, and cut the transite to that length.
Step 3
Thread the transite into a needle and push the needle through the sides of the floral heads cut from the bush, as well as floral heads on stems. String them until you have about five (or six) per strand. Push the floral heads along the transite to space them the way you desire.
Step 4

Now, add a dab of hot glue to the back of each flower to hold it in place.

TIP: Another way to make the garland is to cut five (or six) short stems and tie the transite around each stem, to create a garland of hanging stems.

Step 5
To hang the garland, tie the transite to a tree branch, or use a piece of clear tape to attach it to your wall.
