Do you like flowers but are you looking for something more original than the traditional bouquet? Why not embark on a homemade crown? With some tulips and a bunch of eucalyptus, create an amazing ephemeral composition that will charm all your visitors.
– A metal circle with a diameter of 20 or 25 cm
– Florist binding wire (covered with kraft paper / green plastic)
– Some tulips
– Some eucalyptus branches
– A cotton ribbon or string of about 25 cm
– A pair of scissors
– Pruner or florist scissors
Budget: less than 25 euros
Duration: 1/2 hour
1. Tie the cord to form a closed loop.Pass it around the metal circle to hang it.
2. Decide on the orientation of your crown. It can be regular or asymmetrical, and the volume can be distributed in different ways around the circle. Then start by attaching a few soft branches of eucalyptus to create a background.
3. Cut some tulips, keep one leaf only. Attach them one by one in a harmonious way on the circle using the wire to bind. Be careful not to over tighten, the hollow stems of the tulips are fragile.
4.Once you are satisfied with the position of the tulips, expand the set with new branches of eucalyptus that will hide the bindings of the tulips. They can be tied with the wire or simply slipped under the already fixed branches.
In the end
Your finished work, cut the overhanging rods and the excess wire. Your crown is ready to be hung on the wall or on a door as a sign of spring welcome!
