Last week, Mother Nature stunned the southeast with a "light dusting" of snow. Overly congested cities, such as; Atlanta and Birmingham fared the worst. Fortunately for us, our precious dot-on-the-map took extreme precautions. Most of us around the Mobile Bay ended up with at least two days off of work due to the icy roads. I had three.
I used that time to relax with my husband, work on two invitation suites, and DIY projects here and there. My favorite DIY yet: an organic take on the floral crown.
What you will need:
Greenery of your choice (I used Eucalyptus Leaves for their life span)
Ribbon (Optional | I used Frou Frou Chic Silk Ribbon in Terre)
Hot Glue (A florist would likely shun)
Easy as pie. Cut "hearty" stems of the greenery and place in a circle to "map out" your crown. Once you have enough stems to create the look you want, begin gluing. Hot glue goes a long way, and I wanted my crown to be a bit more whimsy, so a dot on the thick side of the stem was enough. Hold stems in place until dry. After, I added silk ribbon to connect the crown in a bow. If you don't want the ribbon intertwined, you could attach two pieces of ribbon, one at each end to secure in a bow.
