FLOWER HOMEWORK NO. 3 | FLOWER CROWN
I’m well into my final week of Flower Arranging 101, but let’s take a moment and bask in the assignment that was last week. For our week 3 homework we were asked to create a flower crown using delicate fresh flowers. I decided to use this opportunity and really let my girlie-side shine through.
I was a little crestfallen when I first learned this would be our homework assignment, I mean what girl in her twenties hasn’t made a flower crown for one event or another? And let’s be honest the trend is a little played out. BUT, Chelsea taught us a really amazing technique that made the whole flower crown making experience go a lot faster. Her tip was to make lots of mini bouquets wrapped in floral tape first, then you attach those to the wire base for your crown. It made the whole crown sturdier, cleaner looking, and easy to assemble. If only I’d known sooner...
For my take on the traditional flower crown I decided to use blush bud roses, chamomile flowers, and yellow solidago. The result feels very springy, sweet, and feminine. It reminded me of these dried flower crowns my mom would buy me at the Yankee Peddler craft fair every year growing up- very maid marian if you ask me. - b.
