Sweet Petunia Lei for a Ballet Recital

This Lei is named: Sweet Petunia Lei to be given to my Grand Niece who is a participant in a Ballet recital. The ribbon size used for this lei is 3/8" wide metallic edge lavender and pink pastel colors except for the "spikes" which are 1/8" wide metallic edge lavender and pink color combination. Finished lei length is 38" long since it is for a 9 years old.  

If you wish to make one for a special event, instructions can be found when you visit the island of Hawaii (Oahu) - refer to the name of the lei.  Check out the retail store and schedule lessons at U'I Mau A Mau LLC.  They do have a website: There are many types of lei samples on their site but in person hands on instructions are a must in order to complete the first lei.  But if you can't make it to the Island and live on the West Coast, contact  Chris Tanizawa at for FREE lei making classes in Union City, California. She has various lei kits for purchase and has a schedule for her classes but maybe not this specific lei style.
 Here's a closer look at the lei:
