Queen of Sunday Leafy crown DIY

IMG_2738You know by now that I am a lover of plants and flowers. I have worn flowers in my hair since I was old enough to pick em and have used plants and flowers as inspiration for all sorts of cool hairdos.

What you may not know is that I have a head full of ideas at all times. They pull on my pant leg begging for attention like a toddler. I cannot shake them off. This is partly why I blog. To get them off me and into the world at large. Many of them, like the swinging couch and skateboard/babystroller are very hair-brained (pardon the pun.)But occasionally, they work beautifully. Today, I called upon my Arkie Kitchen Innovation skills, and stapled together a crown of eucalyptus.

I walked by a eucalyptus bush and it smelled so good. I really wanted it on me. So I picked 5 or so of the smaller delicate off-shooting branches and brought them home. I scoured the house for thin wire or thread to tie them together with but to no avail. And then, I found an old stapler. I flashed back for a moment to my early years of scotch tape and staples. It all came back to me. With staples, you can do anything. And with that, I stapled together the branches into a lovely leafy fresh smelling crown that I am wearing as I type.

Now, you can do it too. Go outside and find the prettiest delicate branches you can. Take them home and staple them into a crown to wear around the house like the botanical Queen of Sunday.

XOXOXO
