In Hawaii where I currently reside, lei giving is a popular tradition to celebrate special occasions. 

You can create personalized leis using different materials including real flowers, silk flowers, paper flowers, candies & snacks, dollar bills, ribbons, etc. My new video shows how to create cute pyramid boxes for lei making using recycled papers.

This project is easy & fun that you can enjoy with kids too :)
