Dear Internets,

I have the winter blues and there is nothing that will help me apart from another trip to Greece or a severe injection of summer in my life. Forever the optimist, I've decided that means making floral headbands and living a life in freezing denial. Since it occurred to me that you might also think ignorance is bliss, here's a little how to.
You will need:
1. Floral stems
2. Floral tape
3. Floral Wire
4. Silk/Foam flowers 

The floral supplies and foam flowers you can get from spotlight but I opted for silk flowers on clear up at Flower Power. The rest is pretty easy. Use at least two floral stems twisted and shaped into a crown. Using floral wire attach the flowers to your preferred composition. The last touch is the Floral tape. It is a little stretch and sticky to start but it hides those wires and dries quite fine.

So forgiving my confused expression (I just figured out how to use the remote switch for the camera) do you think you'll be wearing flower crowns around town? See what I did there? Rhyming Queen! I can feel summer getting closer already
