DIY Flower Crown

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday 🙂

Today, I’m showing how I made a DIY flower crown. This was a really fun project! Overall, it cost about $20 and I still had enough supplies left over to make about 2 or 3 more crowns. Flower crowns are perfect for weddings, photo shoots, or just any outfit in the summer 🙂

Step 1: Gather supplies

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Floral Tape
  • Floral Wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • Greenery
  • Flowers of your choice (real or fake)

I got all my supplies at Hobby Lobby (Gotta love 50% off sales!)

Step 2: Shape the wire into a crown

I put the wire on my head and measured the length I needed. Then I doubled that length and folded the wire to make a double layer of wire so the crown is more thick and durable! I then simply twisted the two layers together. Lastly, I left one end of the wire in a loop and one side open so that I could clasp them together at the end!

Side note: Here’s a picture of my cat Winston during the process. He was all up in my biz considering he is absolutely obsessed with plants and wire (weirdo)

Anyways, onto the next step! :p

Step 3: Wrap in floral tape

This step is simple: Just wrap the wire crown you just made with floral tape. This makes it thicker and gives a better base for the greenery to attach to!

Step 4: Add greenery

Next, I took a whole stem of greenery and wrapped it around the circle with floral tape. I originally thought I was going to cut small pieces of the greenery/leaves off in order to attach it, but it made things much easier to just wrap it as whole.

Step 4: Add flowers

Now, just add the flowers! I chose small pink roses and some tiny little white flowers. Once I added the flowers I wrapped the whole thing in more wire. The wire allows you to perfect how thick the crown is. I wanted a thin crown, so I wrapped it several times to keep the leaves and flowers from sticking out too far.
