Today’s craft comes courtesy of Annalee, who created this lovely rose petal crown as a gift for a friend.
She says that all you have to do is gather some fallen rose petals (or other flower petals) from the ground and then gather a handful of stiff, long grass (the type that’s going to seed and looks like wheat on top).
Poke the stiff end of the grass through the rose petals and spread them loosely, weaving several strands of grass. Loop them around in a circle and tie the ends or fasten or tuck them. That’s it!
Here’s a shot of the crown from above, showing how it was fastened. Anna used pliant clover stems to wrap around the grass ends and tie them in knots.
Isn’t it lovely? It would be a perfect accessory for a fairy party — or just an afternoon in the back yard!
