I have been wanting to make a flower crown for my Daughter for some time now and this morning was the perfect opportunity whilst the sun was shining.
We ventured out to my shed where i have an area for potting, an area for crafting and an area where all our tools are organized. I made use of what we already had in the tool box and set back into the garden to see what was growing. I was surprised to find a fresh sprouting of Grape Hyacinth near the garden gate which i hadn’t noticed whilst being in the garden the last few days. Mini Hyacinth are adorable and look so pretty.
I wanted to add some greenery to our flower crown so i added twine from my Honeysuckle climber and raided last years hanging basket to see what could be salvaged!I ended up with nice little collection to work with. I used daffodil leaves to twirl around the crafting wire of the headband (bought from hardware shop a while back) which i then attached by using a small piece of clear tape. The leaves were not at all snug and that enabled me to thread other flowers through the gaps.
After threading the quantity of flowers i needed, it was time to attach some ribbon at the back. I added a few strands of white ribbon because my Daughter loves to pretend she has long hair like Rapunzel. Olivia is very very girly.
Olivia was so excited to wear the crown and asked to go exploring in our local woods. We found lots of little fairy houses and she wore her favorite dress.
