Today I saw orchid leis for $19.99 at our grocery store. I very tempted to get one, but does anyone know how to make them?

Sorry not much help in the flower area.

It might be cheaper to buy it---you may think so when checking out the price of orchids!!!! They are beautiful but kind of expensive.
If you do decide it is cost-effective to string your own orchids, make "spacers" to put between the flowers so they stay spread out. The easiest thing to do is take clear plastic drinking straws and cut them into small pieces (1 inch or less) and string one of these spacers between each flower.
