Hmm, I just reblogged it from another site, but I think I can help you in terms of what to buy and how to do it. If you click the link, it’ll take you to the complete photo post that shows you what you need. In any event, here’s the list:

  • Nail polish
  • Floral wire, a thin bendable wire is ideal. 26 Gauge is fine. imageimage
  • Floral Tape            image
  • Wire cutters/scissors
  • a pencil or cylindrical object to wrap the petals around
  • Ribbon (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. First, you’re gonna need to make the crown. You can do this by using the wire you already have or you can use an old headband or anything that you like that resembles a headpiece. Thicker wire is also fine for this step.image       As you can see, OP twisted two pieces of wire together and left loops at the end (to attach the ribbon). Then they covered it in brown floral tape.
  2. The second step is to make the flowers. Using your pencil/cylindrical object, twist the wire around it to create a ‘petal’. Repeat this until you have at least a couple of petals. 3-6 is usually fine, it’s really your call. image
  3. SLIGHTLY bend the petals back to create a natural looking petal.image
  4. After you are satisfied with the shape of your petals, cut out your flower, leaving some wire left to attach it to your crown. 
  5.  Repeat the first few steps and make the rest of your flowers.
  6. Take one of your flowers and CAREFULLY apply nail polish to it, one petal at a time. Think of it like making bubbles. It may be easier to pour the nail polish in a flat plate and dip it, or dip the entire flower into the polish.imageRepeat this for all your remaining flowers.
  7. Twist the two ends of your flowers together to form a ‘stem’.image
  8. Wrap the stems with floral tape, preferably with the same color you used in the base of the crown.imageRepeat this for all your remaining flowers.
  9. The third step will be attaching the flowers to your crown. You can do this a few ways. One way is to wrap the stems around the crown. Another way is to just wrap the stems with floral tape as you go along, like the OP did.imageDo this until all your flowers have been attached to your crown.
  10. At this point, you can tie the ribbons to the loops like OP did, or decorate it any other way you like. :)

Enjoy your new floral crown!

TIPS

  • You can purchase most of the items in Walmart, Michael’s or any craft or flower store. You can also order it online. :)
  • REMEMBER, this tutorial is just a guide. If you don’t want to use brown floral tape or if you prefer using the green floral wire, don’t be afraid to change it up. You can use any color or material your heart desires.

it’s actually called vampure prosecutor 2: solving crimes by blood.

We just started watching a show called “vampire prosecutor” but it’s the second season maybe?  though it’s korean and i’ve never seen a multiple season drama really 

but brian was just like “i really hope he’s not just a vampire that fights crime.  i really want him to be a prosecutor.  vampire lawyer!”

So, I’m always really excited to show people the wonders of korean food.  and I really like making korean food and sharing that with others as well.

but when i make korean food I get recipes from korean people and i try to stick as close to the recipe as possible.  like yes i substitute if i absolutely can’t find the ingrediant (like i dont think serrano peppers are exactly what’s used in korean cooking but it’s as close as i can get?).  

what i don’t like is showing someone how to make a korean dish and then hearing them think up ways to substitute things that they can get, and that i’ve already gotten for them!  

so like hey, if you are making kimchi, and the recipe calls for rice flour and you have it, dont talk to me about subbing it with corn flour because “i dont know what else to do with this box of rice flour”

yeah?  then give it to me because i do and stop asking me about korean food if you aren’t interested in sticking to an actual korean recipe and just want “korean-eque” food at your house.   

Fresh cucumber soup (it’s this korean dish that is basically cucumbers, peppers and green onions in a really nice cold vinegary broth) after a few days sort of becomes fresh pickled soup and wow it’s so fucking good i’m gonna make more tongiht because my mouth is in love

I love how my nanny mom really wants to have her evenings to herself and so she tries to force her child on a schedule during the day regardless of how the day is going and then wonders why her baby is a fucking monster after an afternoon nap that was only 35 mins.

Like if you wanted a guaranteed free evenings deal then maybe reconsider being a mom cuz the way I hear it nothing is a promise after the spawn arrive.

You can't have your cake and eat it too.

You do not get to say shit like “I don’t find Black People attractive” and then refute the label of racist.

You can’t say shit like “we’re all people. we’re all part of the human race” in one breath and then follow that shit up with “I don’t find Black People attractive.”

If you don’t find PoC…
