Hanging Flower Branch

Our Hanging Flower Branch was first created as nursery décor, but it is perfect for many rooms in your house and can also be used as a decorative backdrop for events and celebrations.  With minimal supplies and just a little time, you can create this DIY dreamy look!

I LOVE these branches, which you can purchase at Michaels Stores (I live in Florida and birch trees are not in abundance).  They are clean, come in different dimensions, and are straight-cut on each end. You can use any type of straight bar-like item, such as a dowel, but these branches are my favorite.

You can get lost in the silk flowers, so go into the store knowing what color scheme you want. For this project, I wanted neutral greens with hints of blue and a lot of natural elements. I chose cotton, air plants, and a ton of different-shaped greens for varying textures. Be sure to pick up your jute/ fishing line or whatever you would like to use to hang your silks. I’ll go step by step for you in the following photos to guide you through this whimsical project.

Attach your first flower/leaf by tying a knot around the base. Leave a few inches (or as much or as little as you would like) after. Attach another flower/leaf. Think about how you would like your strings to hang- you may want additional or less space between your flowers/leaves.

Keep repeating this until you are at the end of your line (whatever you are using to tie and hang your flowers/greenery)- check as you go.

Keep tying, keep repeating!

step by step how-to crafting

Once all of your strands are tied with your beautiful flower/ greenery- lay them out on the branch. This way you can move/ adjust etc before you attach.

I like to make sure my bigger pieces are not near each other. I added on this short strand seen below to add some interest with lengths.

When all is in place where you desire- simply tie onto the branch.

Isn’t it beautiful?! Such a gorgeous end result.
