What do you do with extra flower heads or seed pods that you have laying around?
You make a gorgeous flower garland!
Have a look at my JOURNAL post - How to Make a Flower Garland - to find out how.
This is such a fun and simple craft that everybody loves. This is bullion wire, a wonderful material for creating with. It is very thin, almost thread-like, and instead of trying to tie little knots around your flower heads, all you have to do is twist the wire around the stem a couple of times. This wire has a slight crinkle in it, making it incredibly easy to handle and manipulate. You can style it in a wavy shape, or pull it straight to make long curtain-like strands. Let your creativity run wild with this material.
- Use this wire with my Wildflower Confetti to get started on some garlands right away, or start drying some flower heads from your own garden and make something really special with them.
- Strong, spooled wire is slightly crinkled and measures a generous 45m long
- Bullion wire is handy to have around, it can also be used for other delicate dried floral projects, such as making floral hair combs, crowns, boutonnières, brooches, and corsages.
