Stirling Blue (DIY Kimono Jacket x 2 styles)

| Fashion Friday | Travel Souvenir | DIY | Kimono Jacket | Kimono Shawl |

I have just started working at a clinic in Stirling and it is beautiful – a freshness in the air, koalas crossing the road and flowers still-bloomed while the ones in the suburbs have wilted. After work last week, I discovered a local store selling crafts and cloth so here are my first Stirling souvenirs (one is for my sister!) – super easy kimono jacket and shawl.

Instructions are below each set of pictures.

DIY Flower Crown

Finally cultivated enough flowers in our garden to create a super easy flower crown.

  • Cut a couple of flowering vines and twist them together to fit (choose the greener stems as they are more malleable and less likely to snap)
  • You can use some twist ties hidden amongst the leaves to help join them together if you need.
  • Cut off or tuck in stray leaves/flowers, and you are done! No extra wires or glue for this one 🙂

Note 1:
To make a thicker crown, you may need the wire base. You can then use a glue gun to add and arrange extra flowers and leaves as desired.

Note 2:
Using fresh flowers means your flower crown is likely to dry out over the next couple of days. Consider artificial, or silk flowers if you are wanting to make a re-usable crown!
