I made a flower crown

 One of my resolutions this year was to make my own flower crowns. I just finished making this one. It isn't perfect but i love it. I am going to get some cream cotton thread and wrap the whole of the wire in the thread to cover up the wire twists i made. I played around trying to wrap lace and ribbon but it is hard to do around the flower twists so i think a lovely antiquey cream colour thread would look wonderful and would match the flowers also. I have had these flowers for years. I found them in a charity shop and i just looked at them today in their vase on my fireplace and knew they were destined to be flower crowns.

This was my first one but i shall now be making a lot more. Elle loves it already and put it on straight away. I took some photographs of her wearing it. It was a bit big, of course, but looked so pretty on her and of course, i cannot resist this sweet face of hers. I am in love with her little signature tongue in all her photographs i take of her.
