I don't understand things like this. I come from a family where we buy things. We don't sit and make blankets [or flowercrowns].-Somara, fellow bridesmaid
Last weekend, I had such a wonderful time visiting old friends from college. I spent Saturday traipsing around NYC with Kathleen, who just moved there after landing a job with a photo studio, and her husband, David. Then we traveled out to Princeton to visit our friend and bride-to-be, Gina, who hosted us for a pre-wedding weekend of fun for all the bridesmaids. One of these said pre-wedding festivities we partook in was creating lovely flower-crowns before we embarked on a day full of surprises. Gina has a mix of girls with art backgrounds, and non-craft oriented backgrounds. There were lots of laughs and merriment as we helped each others crowns come to life. I wanted to share with you some pictures of the crafting that took place!
We created the structure of the crown with two pieces of floral wire twisted together. Snipping the buds off, leaving about an inch of stem, we then used jewelry wire to secure it to the crown.
We had a table full of supplies at the ready. Whatever could possibly be needed. Ribbons for sweet bows, hot glue for finishing touches, paper clips for.... who knows?
