project: Floral Crown


When I was in Birmingham I finally got round to doing a D.I.Y I've been meaning to for a whole year.
Thanks to Lana Del Rey floral crowns were everywhere last year and I expect they'll be everywhere this summer too, they can be done in loads of different ways and are so pretty. 

All my materials for this came from Poundland and the whole thing (modelled by my lovely friend Jess) cost me £2... with materials left over for next time. I decided not to go for the traditional rose and instead used this flower with a more wintry wine colour as well. It was super duper easy to make and I'm really pleased with the result.  If anyone is interested I'll put up a tutorial! I've got loads of different ideas for the next one I will make, I haven't made anything since I made a couple of Christmas gifts so its good to get back in to a bit of d.i.y. If anyone knows where you can get cheap fake flowers online, I'd love to know!

If you're not the crafty type there are loads of places online where you can purchase floral crowns. My favourite are: Daisies for Charlie, Rock and Rose, Roses & Clementines & Crown and Glory.
