WHAT WE USED
1. Thomas Knoell crown style name CALYPSO.
2. Blue sweet pea blossoms. 3. Purple Agapanthus blossoms.
(Of course feel free to use whatever flowers complement your theme, but keep the scale small.)
STEP 1: CLIP & TIE
Clip blossoms but leave about an inch of stem remaining. Tie the stems of a few smaller blossoms together with light string or thread to create little groupings.
STEP 2: ADORN
Push the stems through the openings in the crown, mixing large and small blooms. Allow some of the crown to show through.
STEP 3: BEND & GLUE
Bend the stems on the backside of the crown and glue with floral adhesive (easy to find, just google it).
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
About 2 yards of fabric total. Scissors or cutting wheel. Needle and thread that matches your fabric color.
STEP 1: CUT
Cut fabric on bias (diagonally) in 3 strips about 6" wide x 36" long. Smaller if you'd like smaller flowers.
STEP 2: GATHER
Run a thread through one of the edges. Dip in and out about every quarter inch, then gather fabric so it shirrs and creates little waves. Do this for each of the 3 strips.
STEP 3: SEW & COMBINE
Wrap shirred ends together and sew all the layers together so they form a blossum.
STEP 4: FRAY
Pull edges with your fingers to create fraying.
STEP 5: WEAR, CARRY OR DECORATE
Hot glue fabric flowers to a hairband, clump a few together and carry as bouquets, or turn them into informal center pieces. Super cute, with bragging rights too.
