STEP-BY-STEP WILDFLOWER CROWN - 2 WAYS






The other day on a morning walk I came across some pretty purple wildflowers and was inspired to collect them and turn them into flower crowns for the girls. When I have created flower crowns in the past, I have always used a daisy chain type method, although using string to hold them together rather than piercing them through. However, for the second flower crown I tried out a different method, which is detailed below.

YOU WILL NEED
Flowers
Scissors or secateurs
Twine

FLOWERCROWN - VERSION 1
1. Trim flowers of leaves and cut stem to about 7cm long. Attach subsequent stems about 2cm from base of first stem. Repeat until about halfway down.
2. Change direction (creating a wreath arrangement) until you reach the top and join the top pieces. Trim any loose threads.








FLOWERCROWN - VERSION 2
1. Measure the circumference of your child's head and cut a piece of twine to that length.
2. Attach stems at two points, about 1cm from the flower, and about 1cm from the base of the stem to the circular twine piece. Repeat until you reach the top again. Trim any threads.
