If you are looking for an easy and cheap way to add a little bit of colour and class to your or your bridesmaids' wedding outfits, making circlets is a good option. A circlet is an accessory worn around the head and adorned with flowers. In order to make your own circlets, you must have wire, tape and decorative items such as flowers and ribbons.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Wrap a length of wire around the head of the person you are making the circlet for. Use the tin snips to cut the wire so that it is a few inches longer than the length of the head. If you wish to use only one strand of wire, move to Step 3, otherwise, cut nine strands of wire the same length as the first.

  2. 2

    Tape one end of all of the strands of wire together. Separate the other end of the wire into groups of three and tape each group together. Braid each of the three groups together in any pattern you wish down the length of the circlet.

  3. 3

    Tape both ends of the circlet, whether it is one wire or the braided wire from Step 2, so that it forms a circle shape. Place this circle onto the head of the person who will be wearing it to ensure it fits.

  4. 4

    Remove the circlet from the head and place it on a table or other working station. Place the flowers around the circle that you intend to use, alternating colours or types of flowers as you see fit. Tape the stems of the flowers to the circlet so the flowers are facing the outside.

  5. 5

    Cut a length of ribbon you want to add to the circlet. Choose a spot on the circle and tie one end of the ribbon to it. You can let the ribbon dangle down to make it trail behind you or you can tie the ribbon into bows or other shapes to get the look you want.
