DIY: Fresh flower halo

10/08/2012




When Expresso invited me to be on the show for a D.I.Y., I decided to try out the popular floral halo. It's fun, fast, easy and perfect for channeling your inner Lana Del Rey, pout not included. You'll need:
  • Floral Wire
  • Thin malleable wire
  • Floral tape
  • Wire cutters
  • Clippers or scissors
  • Fresh flowers of your choice 
The floral wire I got was pre-cut so I twisted them together to add length. I measured it around my head and cut it to fit while keeping some length to make a hook and eye closure.
 
You can either cover the entire halo in floral tape for a sturdy base or cover the wires later as you see fit. It's just to hide the wires and re-enforce them. Since I was making it last-minute for the tv appearance I covered the halo in tape to begin and just left the exposed wires. Cut the stems off of the flowers right up to the base. Cut about 5cm of wire and insert it into the remaining stem then wrap the wire around the halo adding as many as you wish. Done!
