Video: Real Flower Necklace Using Hyacinths

In this video Kelly shows how to make necklace of flowers with a needle and thread. Use this foundational floral design skill to create beyond the necklace — floral installations, flower chains for fashion, chair backs, and more are possible.

For this demonstration she uses hyacinth flowers, but you can apply this technique to many types of flowers, like marigolds, carnations, and more. Just adjust the needle strength and thread type accordingly. The sturdier the plant, the sturdier the needle and string. More delicate flowers require more flexibility.

 A great source for threading materials is Beadalon. We purchased ours at Michaels.
