Ceiling Centerpiece

Plopping down a huge centerpiece on your table might seem like a sensible thing to do to make your home insta-ready, but think again. Since the table is where one of the most important gatherings happens, it's important to use the space wisely. You still want a beautiful tablescape, but not at the expense of your guests' comfort. You want Uncle John to communicate across the table without having to lean left and right just to get a glimpse of Aunt Sarah's ear. So to keep your dining space Instagram and banter friendly, hang your pièce de résistance.

Here's how to make our floral chandelier.

For the hanging Amaryllis centerpiece, you'll need:
A wire wreath frame or a rectangular frame
Clear wire
Green floral wire and/or green floral tape
Fishing line
Lots of red Amaryllis or florals of your choosing
Vines to cover up the exposed frame

Instructions for our hanging Amaryllis centerpiece:
Cut three equally long pieces of fishing line to the desired length if you're using a wire wreath. If you're using a rectangular frame, cut eight equally long pieces of fishing line to the desired length. The length of the fishing line determines how low your centerpiece hangs. Tie one end of each line around the wreath frame equidistant from each other so the frame is supported at three points. Bring the three pieces together at the top and tie them to a metal loop in the ceiling.

Thread a needle with a clear thread and insert the needle through the end of the first stem. Pull the thread all the way through. Tie the thread around your frame so that the flower hangs a little below the frame. Secure with a double knot and trim the ends of the thread. Continue in this way until you’re happy with the number of stems tied to your frame. Wrap the exposed frame with vines for a sleek look. Use floral wire and/or green floral tape to secure the vines to the frame.

For the green chandelier, you'll need:
An old lampshade frame
Chicken wire mesh
Green floral wire and/or green floral tape
Pliers
Fishing line
Lots of vines, flowers etc. We used eucalyptus and fir branches for our green chandelier a few seasons ago.

b]Instructions for our green centerpiece:
Cover the lamp shade frame with the chicken wire and secure it with floral wire or tape. Hang the frame from the ceiling using multiple fishing lines to ensure a stable chandelier. Suspending it before adding the flowers and vines makes it easier to get a good overview of how the chandelier is coming together and where the empty spots are.
Working from the bottom up, thread vines or flowers through the net and secure with floral wire or tape. Remember to work with the curves of the vine to get a natural look. Repeat until the entire frame is covered. Trim excess branches to achieve the desired shape.

That’s it – your beautiful chandelier is complete!
Two years ago, we went with a green ceiling centerpiece that was pretty popular.
