Flowers in her hair

So here I am, always looking for an excuse to wear a flower crown. If I were five years old and could get away with it, I’d wear one to the park, at the library, or just because. They always look best when the flowers are mixed with green, like with leaves or buds. Arranged in a way that says they were foraged for just that moment. Even fabric or paper blooms can get this look when chosen carefully. And when the crown is worn loosely and merrily, with silky flowing hair or side-swept in a messy bun.

They can be oversized and a bit quirky, but always pretty.

Not into flowers? What? Then the Leaf Crown is yours. I would have them, especially if they looked like this.

But let’s not wait for a wedding to wear a flower crown. I’m going for ‘just because’.

  2. You're welcome Janice! I have no real excuse right now, but I'll wear them anyway. I'll be making them from fabric or paper so they last forever (almost). DIY posting soon. PRESSURE 🙂 And congratulations on your engagement!
