HANGING FLOWER MEADOW
To begin every project you will need some supplies. Because Valentine’s day had just ended and spring was already peeking its head we had many flowers and greenery as options. You will need lots of flowers, greenery, transparent tape or floral tape, battery powered mini lights, fishing line, and scissors to create this hanging flower meadow.
HANGING FLORAL ARRANGEMENT BASE
I left out one important item you will need, and that is where your arrangement will be hanging. Luckily we had a light fixture that was perfect for our arrangement. But there are many things you can use to like a ladder, old shallow crates, large brass rings and the list goes on.

HANG BATTERY POWERED MINI LIGHTS
This step was pretty easy. To begin, place the battery box in a non-conspicuous place and tape it down unless you feel it is secure. Next start twinning it around the object you are using. In our case, because it is round, we tried to make sure it created a balanced design.
SMALL FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
Now lay two or three flowers and some greenery on the table then tape them about 3″ down. We created some arrangements with roses and the others with daisies and azaleas. We added some cuttings of giant liriope to add some additional greenery.
Next, tie some fishing line around just below the tape on the side of the flowers. Make sure there is plenty of fishing line there to tie the arrangement to the base.
Repeat these steps and then start adding each arrangement to the base evenly distributing the flowers around the edge.
Next, take the greenery pieces like these eucalyptus pieces and place the fork of the branches over the battery operated lights.
There is no tape or attaching in any way. They just merely float on the light lines with the fork of the branches.
Now it is time to step back and look at the whole design. Look for pieces that are apparently sticking out way past all the other. In our case, we trimmed up some of the eucalypti from the bottom and a few branches on the top. But for the most part, we wanted that natural unmanicured look.
