I found a bouquet of leaves at Trader Joes and I had to buy them. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make at the time, but it had craft written all over it. I knew we were going slacklining in a few days and I was totally feeling the Olympic spirit so I decided to make “olive leaf” crowns for everyone.
Materials and tools:
- Stems of leaves, flexible/soft stems are best
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Wire cutters
- Overlap stems and wrap along the stem with pieces of wire. Use the pliers to position the wire ends so that they are hidden / they don’t poke you.
- Keep adding stems and wire wrapping until you make a circle of leaves. You can add additional stems/leaves for a fuller crown.
- Wrap floral tape on top of the wire to secure and cover the wire. Add a little more floral tape to the pokey areas.
Tahdah! Crowns for all!

I’m a newbie to slacklining (just my third time), but did the crown make me feel like I was going for the gold? Chyesssss.
