How to Make a Flower Head Wreath

how to make a flower head wreath

There is something simple, sweet and girlish about a flower head wreath. And I’ve always had a hankering to make a wildflower one.  As a family, we’ve been taking the Love the Moment Challenge and the challenge for the day was to take a few moments to smell flowers.  My husband had the day off work so we decided to go for a drvie in the country.  Our car broke down — true — right near a gorgeous patch of wildflowers. I know they were probably weeds but they look oh-so-pretty don’t you think? While we waited for RACQ to come, we made flower head wreaths.  I can tell you, we didn’t mind the wait. Not at all.

Materials

Bag Ties: You know the ones that come in freezer bag packet? That’s what I used. As an alternative, pipe cleaners or string can be used.

Fresh or fake flowers

Instructions

1. Place flowers facing outwards on the wire circle.

2. Wind the stems of the flowers around the wire.

3. Keep in place by twisting a bag tie around the flowers.

4. Repeat until the wire is covered in flowers.

picking flowers

This activity is fun for boys too. My son loves picking flowers.  He wasn’t keen to wear the wreath but he had fun collecting flowers for me and looking for interesting things to see along the way.

Botany Bay Diamond Weevil - Chrysolopus spectabilis green beetle

We found these beetles. After googling, I think they may be Botany Bay Diamond Weevil Beetles (Chrysolopus spectabilis).

It’s summer here in Australia and it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and the flowers…even if they are weeds.

    Oh, you all look gorgeous. Every Easter I think it would be a lovely thing to do (variation on Easter hats or something!) but I’ve never got around to it. Now I’m inspired!

    What beautiful flowers – and beautiful children! And beautiful mummy too :)

    Somehow I have missed your ‘love the moment’ challenge (think after our holiday I have been skimming rather than reading round the blogosphere and know that I am still trying to catch up!) but after seeing it tonight I am going to take it on! What a lovely idea.

    What a beautiful bunch you are! And such a fantastic idea! It looks like everyone had a wonderful time. (Except maybe dad trying to deal with the car?) :)

    No, No, No, Kelly, flowers are NEVER weeds! (There MAY be flower haters, who call them weeds tho.) In my opinion, placement is key. If they are located where you want/need them, they are flowers. If they are in your way or there are too many of them, THEN they are weeds!

    Anyway, I can’t wait to see flowers again. It’s the middle of winter here and we just got 1 inch of snow overnight, which is mostly melted now. Glad I’m not further north where there is so much more.

    Enjoy the warmth and all the summer fun. Can’t wait to hear about your next adventure!
