Thank you!

The "crown" is called a "Krans" (Midsommarkrans or Blomsterkrans) and most people wear them on Midsummer here in Sweden.

Jore, Thank you!

It's very simple!

First you measure the head of the one who will be carrying the "Krans".
Take some thick wire and form it into a circle as large as the measurement say it will need to be.

We use a tape and put it on the wire, so that the wire is completely covered, I don't now it's name but it can for sure be bought in any flower shop.
It's green and it makes it easier to attach the flowers and leafs - if you only use wire, it will be too slippery and the flowers will move around.

Choose whatever flowers and leaves you like.

Make a whole lot of tiny bouquets where the stalks should be about 4 cm.

Then you use some thinner wire to bind them to the circle of thicker wire.

Gorgeous! The flowers make Stella look even cuter than normal. Who knew that was possible?!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
