The Supplies

The Step by Step

pearls and lace aisle marker - 1

Step 1: loop your strand three times, spacing out each loop.

Step 2: secure your loops at the top with floral wire. Use a piece of wire long enough to then secure the strand to your chair.

Step 3: attach the pearl strand to your chair by wrapping your floral wire around your chair’s frame. Leave the wrap loose enough to insert your water picked roses behind it.

Step 4: tie a strand of ribbon around your wire to cover it. Keep the length about the same as the length of your longest loop. Like you did with the wire, keep the ribbon loose, leaving room for the roses.

Step 5: add another strand of ribbon, to add to the overall layered effect of the finished marker.

Step 6: insert water picked roses behind the wiring used to secure the pearl garland. Insert enough flowers to create a bountiful little cluster, while being careful not to make the arrangement too bulky. We used 2 water picks, each with 2 – 3 stems of spray roses.

{Tip: spray roses are ideal for this project because of their multiple blooms per single stem}

Step 7: secure your medium sized lace flower to your ribbon using its included wired backer. Position your flower such that it covers the water picks.
