Happy weekend friends! When I was in Texas over the holidays, I got a chance to have a mini workshop with my favorite girls - my daughter and my nieces. My sis-in-law Keely's house is beautifully decorated and has so many big windows illuminating every room with beautiful natural light. So, we took the opportunity to spend a casual afternoon together laughing and being silly and making beautiful floral crowns. We loved every minute!
It doesn't take much to make a beautiful flower crown. I generally like things simple so I just chose some flowers that are hardier (as well as beautiful). What I used were: vine, winter berries, tectorum (which looks like a star - it is lovely as well as hardy), eucalyptus (you can never go wrong with eucalyptus when making crowns or garlands, it is beautiful, hardy, and comes in so many different varieties), juliet garden rose, carnation, and lunaria seedpods (also known as silver dollars).
You can use the vine to make the actual base/crown and then add the desired flowers.
This is Yoshi - he wanted to make crowns too!
For a little variety and a stronger crown we also used eucalyptus as a base so that we could put more flowers on that one without it falling apart or feeling/looking lopsided. .
Life is a party when you get to make flower crowns!
