DIY NATIVE FLORA CROWN!

Our all new BONDS100 range is a new basic that’s anything but basic. Featuring key prints inspired by Australian native flora, the range celebrates 100 years of iconic comfy undies, clothing and socks.

To celebrate the upcoming launch of the range (not long to go!), we asked our craft extraordinaire Kate Camilleri to come up with a DIY inspired by our new season prints… introducing the Native Flora Crown!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Photo 2 - What you need

Craft Wire

Florist wire

Florist Tape (all available from craft store)

Wire cutters

Delish Natives

STEP 1

Photo 3 - Cut The Wire

Measure out the craft wire around your head and cut two lengths using the wire cutters.

STEP 2

Photo 4 - Twist The Wire

Begin to twist the wire. This gives all your flora something to grab onto to.

STEP 3

Photo 5 - Join With Wire

Overlap your edges and twist the florist wire around the edges to join.

STEP 4

Photo 6 - Tape the Wire

So you don’t jab yourself in the head, tape any wire sections you wind with floristry tape.

STEP 5

Photo 7 - Add Flowers

Photo 8 - Continue

Begin to add your flowers by winding their stem through the twists you have made. I have chosen quite large ones as natives tend to be humongous. This meant I needed to trim down some of there stem. Then the wire and tape can be used. Repeat with all your lovely flowers. If at any time the wire and tape is becoming tiresome hot glue is ALWAYS the answer.

STEP 6

Photo 9 - Add Leaves

Photo 10 - Add Leaves2

Repeat the process with your leaves. Poking them in the spaces between the flowers.

STEP 7

Photo 11 - Final 2

I have decided to make my natives more of a centrepiece to the garland as opposed to all the way around but this process can be adapted for any look or flower type.

MEET KATE!

Our new craft blogger Kate loves to spend many hours creating exciting things while dreaming about sequins and sparkle. It all evolved from dancing like crazy and working in costume for the last decade, so all of her creations have at least a pinch of the theatrics and pizzazz. She is currently seeking the perfect balance of practicality and ridiculousness, which always create fun and interesting results!
