I'm tying a knot at the bottom of each of the flowers that I string. I'm thinking that if necessary, a dab of hot glue on each flower's center will keep them exactly where I want them.
I got all my flowers from Michael's, as well as the line for it. The employee that I talked to at the store recommended the jewelry line to string them on, as it's stronger than anything else, apparently. It was pretty expensive compared to the others (at $18 vs $6 or $7), but I figure I'm savings HUNDREDS by DIY'ing, so a few extra bucks wasn't going to make or break me.

here they are!!!
I definitely need to make more.
I tied a paperclip around the top ends so that you can hook the string around that way.
