How-to: DIY Sunflower Arch Swag

Sunflower floral swags are an organic way to brighten up your day. It honestly couldn’t be merrier for the lovebirds to exchange vows in front of a sunflower-inspired archway filled with love, joy and personal touches.Here we made a set of asymmetrical arch swags, the lush one measuring 36” long x 10" wide, while the smaller one 18" long. Keep on scrolling for how we put together these pretty arrangements! 

What you will need

Formula

A variety of greenery

(we used epipremnum aureum vine, gumdrop eucalyptus and willow garland)

sunflowers

foam roses

daisies

baby's breath

petite flower accents

Tools 

wire stems  

wire cutters 


                 

Step 1 Start by building 2 units of greenery base. Cut the gum-drop eucalyptus garlands at 3 FT long. Take 2 pieces and hold the ends together, add in a branch of willow foliage. Secure them with wire stems. 

                 

Step 2 Wire your desired flowers around the base one by one. In this example, we used some faux sunflowers, with several ivory roses in varying sizes. 

Step 3 Insert hints of fillers such as the adorable daisies and white baby's breath for variety and depth. 

             

Step 4 To create the 3FT-long floral swag, we extend the base by adding more greenery in a semi-circular shape. Fill in 2~3 stems of sunflowers in the center as the star of this swag. Layer the rest of roses around the focal flowers for a lush and textural look. 

Viola~ Now why not give them a try by attaching them to right angles of a wooden board or your arch if you already have one!
