In this Instructable, I will be showing you how to make a floral bracelet.
You will need:
Flowers
Copper wire (I used 18 gauge but it really doesn't matter)
Some wax
And for tools:
A lighter
Scissors (for cutting the flowers)
Wire cutters
And finally, a small knife (optional).

Step 1:

Measure out the copper wire so that it will wrap around your whole hand and then add about 2 inches

Step 2:

Go out and grab some flowers.

Step 3:

Push the copper wire through the back of the flower. You may need a to cut a starting hole depending upon how tough your flowers are and how sharp your copper is.

Step 4:

Continue doing this until you've covered your wire to the extent you want.

Step 5:

Those copper wires can be sharp after you've cut them, so rub a little wax on the ends. A quick blast of a lighter will help them stick, just try not to burn your flowers, unless you like that kind of look...

Step 6:

Wrap the bracelet around your wrist. Push in the sides so they touch your skin if it starts unwrapping, and then you've got yourself a nice, natural looking bracelet.
