Midsummer may be the most typically Swedish tradition, and we thought it would be nice to post a tutorial making a flower wreath with wallpaper. Most Swedes are celebrating by eating pickled herring, drinking schnapps and dancing around the midsummer pole. A Swedish Midsummer wreath in wallpaper is not only beautiful in the hair; it´s also a great decoration on a Midsummer table.
How to create a flower wreath with wallpaper
- Steel wire
- A pair of pliers
- Glue gun
- Optional diadem
- Wallpaper Remains
- A pair of scissors
Cut 8-10 pieces of 40 cm long steel wire pieces. The number of steel wires depends on how tight the wreath should be.
Fold the steel wire in the middle and wrap around the diadem with about 4 cm distance. Use a pair of pliers to press to the steel wire. The wire must be firmly fixed to the diadem for a good result. If using a pair of pliers is not enough, you can attach the thread with glue from the glue gun. The steel wire should then stand up straight.
Cut optional flowers and leaves from your wallpaper residue.
Glue the wallpaper flowers on the steel wires with the glue gun. Spread out your wallpaper flowers and leaves along with the desired pattern.
Now you’re done with your flower wreath and ready for the little frog dance around the maypole.
Happy Midsummer everyone!
