It's for adult DD so I am guess they need to be 5/6 cms big?

They aren't Roses or Lilys - any ideas what would look good (Gerbera have been veto'ed) I have a bit of a block with gardening!

Frangipani maybe?

Perhaps hibiscus flowers with spiky leaves behind.

I would say pink frangipani too.

katymac Wed 04-Oct-17 20:12:33

Fragipani look great - I'll look up hibiscus now

katymac Wed 04-Oct-17 20:22:22

I think fragipani is the one to go with - just looking for colours now

How about bamboo for leaves?

Thanks ladies you have really really helped

Hmm leaves I am a bit stuck on but I think bamboo is too thin.

katymac Mon 09-Oct-17 21:13:17

ANd the frangipani is too pale I think

Do I need more of a magnolia leaf?

venys Mon 09-Oct-17 21:23:27

I think it might be ti leaf.

venys Mon 09-Oct-17 21:24:36

No definitely not magnolia leaf. There are different shades of frangipani though.

katymac Mon 09-Oct-17 21:30:34

I think I am unlikely to get a Ti leaf on Amazon tho'

The ones I have seen aren't as deep a pink as the picture

Magnolia are shinyier (sp?) & stiffer aren't they but a bit to round

True might be tricky to get . You are right about the magnolia leaves. It would still look good if you used those.

I hate google now pinterest is so big - you can never find out where the picture is from or how much the things are

katymac Mon 09-Oct-17 21:53:03

how about these?

katymac Mon 09-Oct-17 22:02:53

& these?

katymac Mon 09-Oct-17 22:29:04

She likes them - now I need to source a necklace - I can't make that!!

PeppaPigStinks Mon 09-Oct-17 22:45:18

There is a moana magazine out with a free necklace!!

venys Mon 09-Oct-17 22:56:35

That looks pretty good I reckon.

katymac Tue 10-Oct-17 07:58:59

Thanks Venys i i think the leaves are reasonably spikey and i guess i can stiffen then with hairspray or varnish

thanks Peppapig but she probably needs something a bit more substantial i she is hoping to do princess parties

What about this plus macrame and beads?

the necklace is made out of paua (abelone) shell.

Looks like half paua shell half mother of pearl with pears along the string
