What you’ll need.
approximately 30 picked lavender stems cut to 20cm.
10 smaller, thinner lavender stems cut to 15cm.
a pair of scissors.
a ball of string.
Approximate time to make, 1.5- 2 hours
- Loosely plait a piece of string to fit around your head with about 10cm extra. Tie into a loop.
- Start weaving in the lavender stems through the plaited string. It helps if you curve the stem first, to help to form the circular loop.
- Keep adding the bigger stems through the string until the garland holds its shape and the string is mostly hidden.
- Start to tidy the garland and gather it together by using the daintiest stems to fill any gaps and wind around the larger flowers that stick out.
