Recently I have been busy with life type things,
so sewing has been a bit on the back burner.
But not to worry, I have a pile of spanking new patterns calling out my name.
Until then let me share with you a floral crown tutorial that my amazingly talented
pal Naomi over at Smile Heart Love dreamed up...
First thing to do is get yourself some gorg flowers. Being that most all flowers are beautiful..
go crazy! Be creative! Don't forget to get some lovely leafy fillers too.
You will need scissors, wire, wire cutters and floral tape.
Cut a piece of medium weight wire (with wire cutters) to fit around
your head and then twist the ends together. Next, choose a
flower, cut the stem about 2 inches long and wrap your
floral tape around the stem and your wire halo.
Keep on adding different flowers and leaves and attaching the stems to the wire
wreath with the floral tape.
You can choose to wrap flowers all the way around the crown, or leave some areas
less heavy. I kind of prefer this more asymmetrical look. (Naomi was keen enough
to make hers that way, I lumbered as many flowers as would fit on to mine!)
The lovely Naomi..
Her floral crown was particularly elegant, I love the movement
that the leaves create.
Thank you Naomi for a wonderful afternoon of girly fun. Can't wait to see
your tutorial (with much more professional photography), over at your blog!
