DIY Flower Lei

We were in Hawaii for Valentine’s Day this year and decided to make some leis at home rather than going out to buy something pre-arranged. I made a trip to Wal-Mart and purchased a couple of lei needles and thread – all you need to make your very own lei! I think you could easily use a long needle found at any craft store, since it might be difficult to find a lei needle on the mainland. ¬†We collected some plumeria flowers from a tree growing in the yard for our lei’s, but you can use whatever is available at your local farmer’s market.
