Week 3: Floral Crown

DSC_6297

This week we learned how to make floral head-wreaths or crowns. I used wildflowers to complete the assignment and found that it was easier than I imagined. Now that I have done this, I am convinced that I need to throw a garden party next spring and make everyone a headpiece to wear! I also have been thinking about having a floral potluck like Kinfolk and Sarah Winward hosted. Everyone comes with a handful of flowers to share and make spring arrangements with. Once the flowers are arranged, everyone sits down to enjoy some outdoor dining. Sounds amazing right?!! Anyone interested?

After making the wildflower crown for Elora I thought it would be fun to try working with some larger flowers. I surveyed our garden and realized that we had snapdragons in nearly every color. Naturally that fact begged for the creation of a rainbow crown. And so I made one.

You know I'd be down for any type of party! I'll bring flora and fauna! Oh, wait, I meant food. But I'm sure a petting zoo would just add to the awesomeness of it all.
