How to make: holiday leaf crown

I was in one of my favorite shops a couple of weeks ago, F.N.92, and the owner showed me this little ornate bolero jacket. My jaw dropped to the ground. How awesome is it? I just had to use it for a shoot. So, I dreamed up a little leaf crown to accompany it. It’s the first time an outfit has informed the craft rather than the other way around. I’m thinking it could be the perfect accessory for a holiday ball, winter bride, or a halo for a little angel for a nativity scene.
Materials: wire thin enough to shape to the head, wire cutters, greenery clipped from the garden, gold spray paint, straw floral tape
Step 1: Spray paint your leaves at least 24 hours before you intend on making the crown.
Step 2: Measure the wire around the model’s head and cut it with 3 extra inches.
Step 3: Form the wire into a circle and wrap the extra inches around to secure it.
Step 4: Break the leaves into 2 1/2″ segments.
Step 5: Take your first segment and floral tape it around the wire.
Step 6: Take the next segment of leaves and overlap it with the previous segment and floral tape it around the wire.
Step 7: Repeat until you get to the end. Overlap it with the beginning.
That’s it! Voila!
