Ever since we met them in April, we have been craft crushing (yes that is a thing) on the utterly hip and utterly lovely DIY dons, Ladyland. The video tutorial general lifestyle/style inspiration blog is the lovechild of seven creative women with backgrounds in media, design, interiors, crafting and art. Just flippin' cool ladies, who have turned their instinctively stylish, trend-led hands to the world of home spun chic, ok?
An online destination for all things quirky, clever and cool, Ladyland is where you’ll find awesome interiors, musings on beauty and style, foodie inspiration or a good stiff drink – plus kid-wrangling, conversation starters and kick-ass craft. GET INVOLVED!
And here at EE, we are super delighted to say we most defintely have. We have got together with the team and are lucky enough to be showcasing a 6 part series of perfecto tutorials as part of our EE HAPPY! section of the blog, and we are starting with a wonderful one, just in time for wedding and festival season.
We bring you Ladyland.
And their Floral crown step by step guide.
And guys, this is not just any floral crown, this is a neon ribbon, Baby's Breath, super simple but effortlessly pretty floral crown.
Stay tuned for more, every Tuesday, with EE HAPPY!
- Baby's breath: I got a bunch from Sainsbury's for £4 that would make three garlands. You could also add other flowers like poppies or roses before you add the ribbon.
- Washi tape or masking tape
- Ribbon: about 1.5 meters – thick ribbon is best to hide the tape
I'm a bit of a hippy at heart – if I lived in my own little world I'd be perpetually bouncing about barefoot with pre-Raphaelite hair and a garland of flowers on my head like some sort of Mucha woman.
Unfortunately, due to things like reality and common sense, this is only possible to do on a few days in summer, somewhere in the countryside where my husband won't be embarrassed by me. But when those days come along, I will be prepared because I've figured out a super easy way to make a flowery garland. It may also be useful for flower girls, bridesmaids and music festivals.
Once you're done with it you can leave it lying flat for a week to dry out then hang it up on a wall to stare at, waiting for your day in the sun.
Watch the DIY tutorial video below, or here, to see how I did it.
