I take back what I said in tenth-grade chemistry: I don’t hate science.
I hate chemistry class and the feeling of being so far behind I’d never catch up and the pages and pages of equations.
But not science. Science is really cool.
So it is with a respectful nod to science that I present to you my experience making geodes.
Today I take on another long-time Pinterest project: Wire floral crowns, complete with suspended nail polish coloring.
I wasn’t going to buy the woodburner. Really, I wasn’t.
I’ve seen tutorials for projects like this all over Pinterest for years, and I’ve always wanted to try it out. I love the simplicity of the process and the gorgeous finished product.
Quick idea: Particularly after senior year, but all through high school, there are a lot of graduation parties. For friends, best friends, sort-of friends, family friends. And when you are also a high school kid or also graduating, the idea of graduation gifts for all those different degrees of friends is daunting, since the standard is a check.
I’m well aware that plastic flower crowns are “inauthentic,” that they’re a summer 2015 hipster trend, that the authenticity, and that some people can’t stand them.
But honestly, I think they’re great. They’re simple, whimsical, and summery.
*None of these have to be for those in romantic relationships. As you’ll see in the pictures, a lot of these were done with friends or in a group.
