In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to make a head wreath. Not usually one for trick-or-treating dress-up (I leave this to the experts like my sister), I thought, Why not don a head wreath this evening?
I know it’s not much, but it would be something to demonstrate my youthful enthusiasm, my zest for life…wouldn’t it? Besides, how fun is a homemade head wreath? And oh so au naturale.
Way fun. And simple–one of my favorite words in the dictionary! To make this one, I clipped a rosemary branch, broke it down to smaller sprigs and then interlaced them around each other for a simple head wreath (you can tie the ends to make it easier) and ta-da! Princessa!
But strolling down my rows, I decided I might want something a bit more unique and opted for the sweet potato look. Green, purple blossoms…
Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous! It’s different, anyway. Of course, you can always go with the traditional flower head-gear.
Never fails to disappoint, does it? And oh so creative. What else would you expect from the (crazy) garden lady? Were you thinking bean wreath?
I tried. Pitiful failure, if I do say so myself. But it was fun trying and isn’t that what it’s all about? Happy Halloween!
