Floral garlands are great for decorating a wedding venue or for using as a hair decoration or favours at a party or luau. Garlands are simple to make using a basic carnation flower. Carnations come in many colours and styles. Other flowers can be used as well, or you can mix different types of flowers for a unique look. Make your garlands the same day you'll need them so they'll look fresh.

Things you need
- Carnation heads, about 48
Cut the carnation right under the base of the flower so you only have the head left to work with.
Measure out how much thread you will need. You'll need the length of the actual garland, plus an extra 25 cm (10 inches) for knotting. Now double that and thread your needle.
Thread the needle through half of the carnations. Start at the top of the flower and go through to the bottom. Keep threading through until you have half of the carnations on the thread.
Take the remaining flowers and thread them the opposite way, coming up through the base and stem to the top of the carnation.
Fit the flowers into one another neatly and then tie off the garland with several strong knots.
