Lei Making Kit
In Hawaii, lei making is a wonderful event that usually precedes a family gathering or a special celebration. It’s a time for family and friends to come together and “talk story” and share in the spirit of aloha while they each make a lei.
Each kit includes 200 lei flowers (orchids), 4 lei needles, lei twine, and lei making instructions. It takes 50 lei flowers to create one single strand lei, so if you want to make more than 4 leis, we advise you to purchase extra lei flowers. *Green orchids are much smaller than the purple or white, therefore we do not advise choosing all green (your leis will be much shorter).

Visitors to the Hawaiian Islands will notice orchids throughout their vacation – they may receive a fresh orchid lei upon arrival, or enjoy a tropical cocktail with a fresh orchid hanging on the lip of their glass.
