Flower Bracelet

Flower bracelets are fun to make and can save you money if you create them with materials you have at home. Just take a piece of florist wire and shape it to the size of your wrist. Leave the ends slightly long so you can form a loop at the end of the wire after threading the flowers on the wire. I use green or galvanized 20 gauge wire. You can buy this wire at Michael’s or JoAnn’s. Thread flower buds, foliage and ribbon pieces onto the wire. Bend the bracelet around your wrist and make a small loop with the wire at each end of the bracelet near your wrist. Tie a piece of ribbon onto each wire loop. Simply tie the bracelet onto the wrist!

I used ribbon remnants, lamb’s ear from the garden, ‘Kermit’ mums and spray rose buds to create this bracelet for a bridal shower.
