Flower halo | Flower Chandelier

Hi guys!  I owe you all some crafts so I’ve come today with two!

That sweet little girl above is my daughter Ellie.  She recently went to the most fabulous birthday party I’ve ever seen.  It was a fairy themed party complete with costumes for all the girls to wear and keep.  They included fairy wings, a tutu, a top, a large fairy wand with flowers and ribbon attached to a bamboo stick and those sweet little flower halos.  The moment I saw the halo on Elliott, I knew I had to make some.

So for today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make a flower halo and as a bonus, I’ll be making a flower chandelier.  Fun, yes?  Let’s start with the chandelier.

You’ll need:
  • a large embroidery hoop
  • 2 or 3 artificial flower bunches
  • floral tape
  • wire cutters
  • green paint
  • satin ribbon
Start by painting your embroidery hoop green.

Clip of all the stems from the bunches.  In my opinion, the longer the stem, the better.

Take one stem and bend it along the hoop, securing with floral tape.

Start your next flower with the bloom about half way down the stem you just taped and repeat around the whole hoop.

You can leave the flowers kind of sticking out from the hoop like I did, or you can tape them down closer to the hoop.  Your choice.

Now grab some different colored flowers and fill in the gaps between your first flowers, cutting and taping just like before.

Now wrap satin ribbons around the hoop like above at various lengths.  Use four ribbons to tie onto the hoop and hang from the ceiling.  It adds such a romantic touch to a bedroom.
Now for the halo!

This is going to be the same technique pretty much, sans the hoop.

When you get enough flowers taped together to wrap around your head, you can tape it into a halo.  Then just fill in the gaps with other flowers.

Simple and pretty!  Dreamy and romantic.  I love flowers, don’t you?

Due to the heavy amount of spam comments I've been receiving lately I had to put the word verification up. I know how annoying it can be when you want to leave a comment but I hope you will understand.

Would you be so kind to take the extra step to post your thoughts?
