Floral Crown Charger How-to in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: Add leaves to the bare wreath.

Ivy leaf garlands for making a plate charger.

Secure one end of the leaf garland to the wreath and wind it around the entire ring, leaving gaps of exposed grapevine. Cut off the excess garland and tuck the other end among the grapevine strands to hold it in place.

Use yellow flowers like mums, zinnias, dahlias, or marigolds.

Step 2: Adorn the wreath with flowers. You will need to use around 6 flowers depending on the size of the wreath.


Insert the individual flowers among the leaves and grapevine strands, tucking them in where they would be most securely held in place. Repeat this process with the rest of the wreaths.

Attach the flowers to the wreath. Spread and space evenly around the wreath.

Step 3: Position the finished “floral crown chargers” on your reception tables.
