The Wedding Crown

Oh, I've been waiting a while to share this. In my short career, I have been fortunate to make some special pieces for some pretty lovely people, but this reaches a new level. Introducing the first Folly a Tet Wedding Crown. 

 

♥ Amanda + Mike 

My dear friend, Amanda, came to me with the idea of a Folly a Tet flower crown for her August wedding in Maui. Of course, I jumped at the chance to create something so precious for such an important occasion! 

 

 

I was at first hesistant to make the entire piece out of felt, considering the wedding would be happening in hot weather. However, I realized that wool is so breathable and naturally cooling in warmer climates, so it ended being the perfect choice.

For the design, Amanda wanted small, white flowers along with those cute yellow ball flowers (Craspedia Billy Balls) in mustard yellow to match her mustard sandals for the beach. It took a while to find the perfect shade of mustard, and I even blended 3 different shades to achieve the right one. I needle felted many balls in various sizes, to give more variation and interest. 

 

 

Now, I could have used white pre-felt to make the flowers, which would have cut my time considerably. But, I'd much rather take the time to make something extra special, from scratch. I made my own sheet of pre-felt using organic Merino wool & silk fibres, then I cut circles of various sizes from the sheet, and felted each one into a sweet little bloom. They all turned out differently. Some of the flowers also have a centre of needle-felted Rose fibre. To make the leaves, I felted a large sheet of Merino & silk thread in shades of green, then cut out individual leaves. 

 

 

All of these components were hand stitched to a flexible base of a wire felted in the same green Merino fibres. As per Amanda's request, I felted in loops along the wire so that she could secure the crown with pins. Great idea, right? I'm glad she mentioned that. 

 

So excited! This one made me tear up :)

 

This piece took a lot of planning & effort, and I am so proud! The final crown is lush, light, flexible, resistant, and even better than I had imagined. I even made a matching comb for Amanda's bridesmaid, but failed to take a picture of it. I had some pretty awesome feelings seeing it on my friend as a bride, and I think she looks SO radiant! Look how perfect that beautiful veil fits with the crown! gah! 

 

I am so happy not only with how the wedding crown turned out, but also being able to be a part of my friend's special day. So much love! 

 

          such feelings! 

 

Thanks for reading!

Ah! It's so cool to read about the process for my crown! The best parts of it were:
-I got to try it with my hair trial to make sure it looked the way I wanted it
-It was super light
-It wasn't hot on my head considering the humidity
-It matched my shoes perfectly, and
-I get to keep it forever.

Thank you so much! Best part of my wedding outfit. <3 <3
