I used InkScape to make laurel leaf shapes. I made a line of about six in addition to single ones. Then I used a plotter-cutter to cut them out.
I thought I'd be able to spiral the linked leaves into a wreath. I probably could have, but it was much easier to use the metal tiara as a form.
I hadn't realized it at the time, but the cut-out vein made it easy to lock the leaf strings together.
And then I was ready to dress as if I were Orpheus.
