I'm not sure that there is anything more fun than playing dress up for your wedding, especially when you have a super talented friend who wants to play as well!
Here's a fun (and affordable!) little project that the lovely Rachel (from Figgy Bakery) and I worked on a few weeks ago:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- Floral Tape - Floral Wire - Wire cutters - Pliers - An assortment of your favorite flowers (we used Mums, Asters, Purple Iris, Yellow Salidago and some greenery)
- Your favorite bottle of Red (get those creative juices flowing!)
Step one: Create a circle that fits comfortably around your head, that is accessible to remove and put back on whenever you would like. You can double up on the wire to make for a more sturdy base crown, or use just one; Either works.
Step two: Cut your first bloom and place it on your crown, in the desired location and direction you would like the flowers going. You can switch up the direction of flowers at any point, if you feel. Using roughly 3 inches of floral wire, use to wrap the bloom tightly around the wire crown to keep in place. You can use your hands or pliers to wrap the wire tight.
Step three: Take your floral tape, and wrap it around the bloom to cover the wire.
Step Four: Continue this same process with more blooms, layering around the wire crown until you form a solid crown of gorgeous flowers.
