With the holidays just around the corner, I can’t think of a better time for Rylee Hitchner and Katie McDaniel to send over this beautiful tutorial for wedding ceremonies wreath, which would also be a beautiful addition to your front doors during the Christmas holidays.
Katie incorporated white flowers for a wedding ceremonies wreath, but you could stick to evergreen pieces with maybe a few holly berries sprinkled throughout if you’re planning to create a wreath to go over your mantle or on your front door. A little shrubbery from the yard, some floral tape, wire…voila!
Metal Double Prong Curl Clips – Available at Sally’s Beauty Supply or online here
**note, the double prong is important.. Holds WAY better than the single prong**
Redken Spray Starch – Available at Ulta
Divide your hair into sections, beginning with the bottom section, Create 3-4 smaller sections of each section – about 1? x 2?, Spray first sub-section with Spray Starch Spray, lightly (and each piece as you curl them).
1. Starting at the root, begin to curl hair, twisting the hair, and adding more until the entire iron is covered with hair.
2. Gather the curled section and pin with metal clip
3. Continue to do this to the bottom section, moving up through the entire head, until the head is completely set. *reate sections around your part, curl the front away from the face, to achieve a softer, modern look.
4. Let hair set for 20 minutes, spray lightly with fekkai hair spray.
5. Start releasing the hair from the bottom up, keeping the curl intact as you go and spray hair, lightly, after all the curls have been released.
6. Gently, with your fingers, pull through the end of the hair to soften and release the curl.
Extra tips: Use the curling iron to adjust any curls that look droopy, spray with Fekkai Spray, and avoid touching it too much, unless you want it to fall out a little more.
Herbs are casual and aromatic and perfect for a late summer or fall wedding. As far as ingredients go, the sky is the limit! Here I’ve incorporated blueberries with lavender thyme, oregano and sage and wrapped them with a sweet dotted ribbon for contrast. The best part is that the boutonnieres could be dried and used for cooking later, making them completely Eco-friendly! - Chelsea Fuss of Frolic
