Has anyone see a DIY on the inspiration? I love that and it would be awesome to have.

Thought I would check back in and see if Betty had posted anymore updated pics of this project.

Wendyjd yours came out really nice..did you use fuschia and white orchids from Michael's? Haven't decided if I will take on this project or yet. I forwarded it to the florist just in case to be sure they could replicate it.

Actually I went the really cheap route and bought them at dollar tree (mostly). This was my quick attempt... I used one stem from Hobby Lobby, 3 bunches from dollar tree and one bunch my mom had. You could do it in a few hours at most, its a really easy diy. Just cut off the stem, tie with monofilament (or fishing line if you're from the south) and voila, finished. I made each string about 8-10 feet. I think I've made about 6 strands, I'll make some more when I restock with flowers.

Wendy really its that easyhuh.gif Do you thread the fishing line through the center of the orchid, it looks like it goes through the center. I know Betty had posted her instructions on like page 2 of this thread. I have to go back and read. Now you have me thinking maybe I can pull it off.....why not. I'm gonna give it a shot!

I tied it between the 2 layers of flowers (no threading required). Just get some cheap ones to try and some monofilament. The biggest challenge for me was keeping my cats from chasing the the string and biting through it.

Beautiful girls!! This is what i wanted to do too but i was thinking of having mine hang in a swag sort of way, instead of straight down to the ground, although now that i saw this now i have two options!!! I saw a pic in a magazine and it was awesome!!
