Mihaela at flowerMe had once again organized such a lovely workshop. This time we made flower crowns. I like the idea that Mihaela always wants to choose as organic materials as possible. For flower crowns you should pick up flowers that stay alive for long, but fillers can be picked up straight from a garden. Sage, lavender and explosing grass make a great filler. Ivy is a perfect choice for a pliable branch.
Here're 12 steps how to craft an organic flower crown:
1. Gather the goods
- two or three types of flowers
- one or two types of fillers
- floral wire
- plain twine (optional)
- garden shears or sharp scissors
2.Cut the pliable branch
Wrap the pliable branch around your head to see how much is needed.
3. Pick your flowers
Group your flowers. Create mini bouquets that are beautiful from all sides.
4. Get taping
Use floral tape and wrap it around the stems of the flowers.
5. Admire your cute mini arrangement
6. Get busy
Keep creating clusters until you have seven or eight of them.
7. Get wrapped up
Wrao a single piece of floral wire around the pliable branch and the base of flowers.
8. Keep it tight
Wrap until the flower bunch feels secure.
9. Add another bunch
Grab another mini bouquet and lay it along the pliable branch in the same direction.
10. Keep adding...
11. Grab your plain twine
Wrap it around the end of the branch so it gives a more vintage look.
12. Admire your work :)
Had a wonderful time! Thanks to Mihaela, Jule, Mari, Emma & Sofia! It's always nice to learn new things!
