Step by Step in the Sand

A couple months ago I was asked to create a step by step process on how to create a floral headdress which should be posted soon on Flirty Fleurs. In January I posted a how to but the most recent how to headpiece photos were taken by a brilliant photographer here in South Florida, Michael D. Colanero that I’d like to share with you. In addition, we brought in a wonderful make-up artist, Jody Du Priest who did an incredible job and I can never thank him enough.

Step 2: Insert Springeri by angling upward from the bottom of foam so it lay’s and cascades nicely against hair to repeat the length of hair. Then choose a mass flower such as Green Trick and insert in front of foam so you are able to gain perspective of how the headdress will look.


Step 3: Insert filler flowers such as Yellow Spray Roses, Thistle, Wax Flower and Green Button Mums to fill around foam and to continue to form a balanced head piece. Once your foundation is just about complete, insert 3 Red or your color of choice Carnations as a focal point (the attention grabber).


Step 4: Pick up individual stems of Equisetum, insert stem by stem in the top of foam and bend at each node framing the outside of the headdress.
