Crown the Flower Girl with Flowers!
In a simple design, as in last week’s Flower Girl’s Basket, crown the Flower Girl with flowers! Flowers and ribbons add color to a Baby’s Breath Halo.
You Will Need:
Small Flower Blooms
#1 1/2 Ribbon
#26 Florist Wire
Straight piece of #22 Florist Wire
Light Green Floral Wrap Tape
To create the Halo, review the instructions from our Post of March 22, 2018. There are 2 ways of inserting floral blooms into a Halo.
To prepare to build the Halo, form the Baby’s Breath into clusters using the light green floral wrap tape. In this design, I used blooms of dark pink alstromeria. Using a 6” length of #26 wire, push the wire through the base of the bloom. Fold the ends down and wrap with the light green floral wrap. I usually place the wired blooms in a cup or mug to keep them from getting bruised.
The first way - Add the blooms as you are assembling the Baby’s Breath. As the Baby’s Breath is placed on the #22 wire, alternate Baby’s Breath and floral blooms. To make the Halo fuller, place two Baby’s Breath clusters to one floral bloom. After completing the Halo, add the ribbon.
The second way - Wire the flower blooms and cut the wire close to the bloom. After creating the Halo, add the ribbon. After placing the ribbons and bow, glue flower blooms to the Halo.
