Nature Crafts

Lei of Azaleas
a little touch of the islands in the Mountains

You will need.....

• Large collection of fresh picked of Azaleas

• Thick Thread or unwaxed dental floss

• Large needle

 Choose azaleas for your lei that are open but not wilting.

Start by gently separating the flower from the stem, you will see a small hole in the bottom of the flower.

Set aside.

Next thread your needle with the thread or dental floss and then string the azaleas.

The flowers should all go in the same direction and keep the string flat
on your work surface so the flowers won't fall off the other end.

When you have completely covered the string tie the ends together.
