DIY Lavender Wand!

"Etsy/Inspiration"The Perfect Pear9 Comments
Hi friends and new readers! I did a guest post over at Dreamy Colours, so I thought I'd also post what I posted there, here since I haven't posted a DIY lately. This is something my best friend taught me, so now I get to teach you! 
My all time favourite smell other than the smell of cookies and apple cider is lavender! If you have lots of ribbon around your house, this DIY is perfect to use it all up! 
You'll Need: Some Ribbon, An even number of lavender, clear thread, scissors
step one: gather all your lavender, so the bottom of the flowers all line up. Then tie tight with ribbon. note* when I did this I used the clear thread, which didn't really work too well. I recommend using your ribbon
step two: bend your stems over the flowers so it creates a "cage"
step three: weave your ribbon through the stems, keep it fairly tight so no flowers make an escape!
step four: once you get to were there are no flowers just rap the ribbon around the stems and tie off or dab a bit of glue at the end.
much love, Lauren

Etsy. what a lovely thing it is. it gives you inspiration, a new sense of style and a love for vintage. however, it leaves you wanting everything you see and click as well as an empty bank, which is never fun! lets just dream about all the lovely things Etsy has in store. these are a few of my personal favourites. do share yours!
hope this satisfied your etsy craving! 
much love, Lauren
