Flower Crown Making with @the.little.wildflowers

 

When we saw @the.little.wildflowers with this adorable flower crown we fell in love and had to ask how to make our own. We thought we’d share it with you too, perfect for half term dressing up this summer.

Items needed:

Wire

Floral tape/wire

LOTS OF FLOWERS & FOLIAGE!

Instructions:

  1. Forage your wildflowers – we used cow parsley, buttercups, herb robert, elder & hawthorn blossom.
  2. Measure the size of the crown
  3. Wrap the wire into a circle shape and secure with floral tape
  4. Start by wrapping the wildflowers around the wire working your way around, until covered. Securing each section with tape.
  5. Continue to build on the last layer with different flowers & foliage, taping them in place as you go. The wilder and looser the better!
  6. Pop in the little flowers to add some colour.
  7. Wear your crown with a pretty dress!

 

Fruit Smoothie Making with @ahomefitforkings

 

We spoke to @ahomefitforkings to find out what they are spending time making in the kitchen, a favourite in their house is smoothies which are perfect for summer! See some of the recipes they’ve been using below:

Creamy Mango Smoothie

1 banana, half a chopped mango, chia seeds, a big dollop of Greek yoghurt, a splash of coconut water and some ice, then blitz. It’s so thick and feels like a real treat!

Sunny Smoothie

This one has lots of vitamin C and some hidden veg. Use 2 med carrots chopped, 2 oranges (peeled) a small piece of ginger, 2 tbsp oats and some ice and blitz! 

Raspberry and Apple Smoothie

2 cored apples, a handful of raspberries, a couple of big spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt, 2 tbsp oats, a sprinkle chia seeds and some water. A spoonful of nut butter is also nice with this.
