DIY: Flower Crown

My style isn’t super girly, but there is just something about flower crowns that I love. Maybe it is the carefree vibe they give off? I think if it was acceptable I would rock it more often than not. Whether you are in a wedding or heading to a music festival check the video for all the details on how to make your own.

By the way, I love the idea of doing a flower crown bar at a bridal or baby shower. It’s a great activity that your guests can really engage in and the crown serves as your party favor! My suggestion would be to make the actual crowns ahead of time with the coiled wire, so that all your guests have to do is fill it with flowers.

Materials/Tools:

  • Floral Coiled Wire
  • Floral Wire
  • Floral Tape
  • Pilers
  • Flowers

Easy Homemade Toffee

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups of Almonds
  • 1 pound of unsalted butter (4 sticks)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 bag (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips

  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone pad.
  3. Sprinkle half of the almonds onto the baking sheet.
  4. In a large saucepan, over low heat add the butter, salt and sugar.
  5. Turn heat up to medium/high, stir occasionally, to melt the mixture and bring it to a boil. It is ready when it turns an almond brown color, about 10 minutes.
  6. Pour the mixture over the almonds on the cookie sheet.
  7. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and use a spatula to spread the chocolate around.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining chopped almonds over the top of the chocolate layer.
  9. Sprinkle sea salt flakes over the top.
