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
- 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.
Hope you enjoyed this post! There are endless possibilities when it comes to flower crowns.. so many beautiful flowers to choose from! I can’t wait to make more in the future and hope you are able to make some too! Thanks for reading 🙂
