Round 2! (See round 1 here). I just can’t get enough of these floral crowns. In my ideal world I’m making a new one daily and sporting it around town. (But who says I can’t?!). Now, take a look at Agnes here. Are you dying?! I spotted her at the Kvickly, a super market here in town. Well, actually, I spotted her dress first. I want one for myself. And then I looked up and saw her darling curls, and then she turned around and she killed me with cuteness. Look at that face! I thought she’d be great for a shoot one day but alas, I didn’t have the courage to do anything about it. Well, we went outside to retrieve our bikes and there she was with her mom. It was a sign. Paul encouraged me to just do something about it so I mustered up the gumption (very un-Danish to do this!) and told her mom that she has an adorable daughter and that I’d love to put her in a photoshoot. In hind sight, it’s kinda creepy. But then again, I’ve been told I don’t give off creepy vibes, thankfully.
The pattern is basically same as the first post, but just simplified with the variety of flowers. I chose basic daisies from the garden as kids can easily pick them assemble them themselves.
Step 1: Cut them to size, 5-9″ in length each.
Step 2: Cross one over the other to start.
Step 3: Tuck it under, bring it to the top and fold down with the first one.
Step 4: Repeat the process with another flower and continue until you get to the right length. At the end just tuck in the last flower into the first flower. For extra fullness, tuck in some more flowers afterwards.
Adorable right? Thank you Agnes and her mom, Stine, for being willing to come and model!
