Midsummer flower wreath

Monday, 22 June 2009

On Midsummer Eve women wear flower wreaths and here is how you make one. I have chosen clover, but yours can be from daisies, madder or anything else you can find in a meadow.

Pick 3-4 flowers and bend them around other 3-4 flowers. Hold the loose stalks with the left hand.

Pick next 3-4 flowers and bend them around the loose stalks. Continue until you reach the desired length. The trick for making even and tidy wreath is to use flowers in similar stalk length.

To make a circle tie both ends together with a thread. Cut of the excess stalks. Voila! You are ready for the Midsummer!

And here is what I found in a sunny spot while picking flowers. First wild strawberries!
