What you’ll need.
approximately 30 picked lavender stems cut to 20cm.
10 smaller, thinner lavender stems cut to 15cm.
a pair of scissors.
a ball of string.

Approximate time to make, 1.5- 2 hours

  1. Loosely plait a pice of string to fit around your head with about 10cm extra. Tie into a loop.

  2. Start weaving in the lavender stems through the plaited string. It helps if you curve the stem first, to help form the circular loop.

  3. Keep adding the bigger stems through the string until the garland holds its shape and the string is mostly hidden.

  4. Start to tidy the garland and gather it together by using the daintiest stems to fill any gaps and wind around the larger flowers that stick out.FullSizeRender-32FullSizeRender-24

If you get peckish after all of that hard work, use the left over bits of lavender to make a delicious lavender and lemon drizzle cake!
