DIY Flower Garlands.

Amanda from Readymade, finding inspriration in The Darjeeling Limited, sought to bring a little springtime fun to her abode with some DIY flower garlands.

DIY Flower Garlands.

"Though the number of flowers you’ll need depends on how long you want your garlands to be, gather up at least a couple dozen blooms, as well as a needle and thread. Carnations are a good choice because they’re sturdy (and affordable!), but any locally available, not-too-delicate flowers will do. (You can also check out online flower wholesalers for by-the-dozen deals.)

The actual process of stringing a flower garland is so simple that it might even be considered zen (in sum: use the needle and thread to string the flowers together, directly through their middles) but if you’re the type who likes specifics, step-by-step instructions are available here. Sure, you could just plop some tulips in a vase and call it a day, but would that really reflect the joy of finally saying au revoir to heavy coats and wet boots in the hall?"
