4. Ata el hilo nylon al aro de manera que la flor quede colgando al revés.

4. Tie the thread around the embroidery hoop so that the flower hangs a little below the hoop. Secure with a double knot and trim the ends of the thread.

6. Ata tres pedazos de hilo al aro, para que de ellos lo puedas colgar. Haz un nudo a los tres hilos y amárrales el clic para que de ahí lo puedas colgar (cuida que quede el aro al mismo nivel).

6. Cut three long pieces of clear thread. Tie them around the hoop equidistant from each other so that the hoop is supported at three points. Bring the three pieces together at the top and tie them to the metal ring or clip, being sure that the hoop of flowers stays level. This will ensure that the chandelier hangs evenly.flower chandelier 3
