Flower Crowns and Horns

Posted on

I know it’s become a big ~thing~ on the internet to give bad guys flower crowns but sometimes you just want your own real flower crown to feel pretty yourself. If that’s you then I’ve got a great shop to recommend.

Hand made in Europe by Katerina Metamorphose, these flower crowns are some of the best I’ve seen. Each flower is made by hand from varying textiles and can be custom tailored to fit your needs. Not into flower crowns and more of a laurels or leaf person, she’s got you covered! You can also find unique horn wreathes, antlers and Unicorn horns to accompany a wide variety of costume possibilities. Yes you’ll have some wait time if you live outside of the EU, but man is this quality worth it. I highly recommend giving her Etsy store a look thru if this at all strikes your fancy. 🙂


An Abundance of Blooms

Happy Sunday, all!

Supposedly tomorrow is the first day of Spring here and while the temperature may not reflect that, the amount of sun has definitely improved! It makes me think of green grass, warm breezes, and flowers. Fragrant blossoms arching toward the bright light, full of color and beauty. It’s a bit early for them, though, so what’s a girl to do? How about we make some of our own? I’ve always admired the colors and realism achieved when creating coffee filter flowers:

With a little swipe of essential oil around the sides, these could also give off a delightful scent!

During my spring cleaning, I found an awful lot of stray buttons. We could always make some button flowers:

Perhaps to be made into badges or hair clips?

Or maybe you still have some fabric scraps laying around from other projects and rather than the roses in our Spring Cleaning tutorial, you want some cute little flowers for embellishment:

These would also be great for hair ornaments!

Of course, there is always room for a little bit of crochet so why not some pretty petals of yarn:

These could be placed on a bag or blanket or whatever catches your fancy.

Oh it just makes me think about all of the warm days to come! I sure hope they show up soon.

Stay crafty!
