  • Greenery with a thick yet bendable woody stem (we used eucalyptus)

  • A variety of flowers, vines and pods

  • Floral wire or twine

  • Shears

  • Floral glue


step-1 Choose your base material. Your best bet is a a type of greenery with a thick and sturdy stem that can be bent into a circle shape. Eucalyptus is a great choice. Wrap a piece around your head to judge length, making sure to leave 3-4 inches of overlap. Cut the stem to fit and secure the ends with floral wire or twine, wrapping about three quarters of the halo.
step-2 Continue to add greens for a thicker look or use just one piece for a more dainty feel. Overlap each new piece on the base and secure with your twine or wire. Add additional materials, such as full stems of blooms (we used small yellow orchids) or vines.

step-3 Once you are happy with the shape and fullness of the halo, it’s time to add accent florals. We used ranunculus in shades of orange, pink and peach. Snip the head of the flower from the stem. Add a bit of floral glue to the base of the flower and press to the desired location on the halo and hold for a minute to let the glue dry. Continue to add blooms until you are happy with the look. That’s it! Enjoy!
