What materials do I need to make a lei?
Kukui nuts, feathers, shells, and seeds—such as those from the a’alii shrub—are all winning choices. Likewise, you can use a material that exists outside of nature, including silk flowers, ribbon, candy, yarn, and, for those so inclined, miniature bottles of libations.
