EASIEST DIY MIDSUMMER CROWN

untitled

It’s the Swedish holiday of Midsummer’s Eve today. We’ll hop on our bikes later today to check out the local midsummer pole gathering and dancing; then, return home to set the table for our outdoor Midsummer smorgasbord feast. The weather, knock-on-wood, couldn’t be better. We have friends visiting, from the US, which adds to the festivity!

I love the excuse to make a flower crown, don’t you? Read below to learn how to do these.

This technique always works for us and we’ve had hours of fun with these crowns. It is traditional in Sweden to use birch branches in crowns, as well. If, for some reason, you feel that you need reinforcement, choose the green, paper-coated, florist wire to bind the crown at regular points around the crown. Make it a Summer with flowers in your hair! … or for a party.
