i love flowers and i love flower crowns even more. i'm going to show you how to make your own in just a few simple steps. perfect for a special occasion, a wedding or if you just want to feel pretty. this project costs around $15, but you can make several crowns so the cost is actually much lower. you can make a few different head pieces for yourself or make one for a friend.
here's what you need... you can find all of these materials at your local craft store. i suggest buying high end fabric or silk flowers for a more realistic looking head piece.
step one: create a circle that fits comfortably around your head, that is easy to take on and off. i tripled the amount of wire and then wraped a fourth time around to make it extra sturdy.
step two: cut your first bloom and place it in the desired direction on the crown. using a small 4 inch piece of wire, wrap the bloom tightly with wire to the circle with pliers.
continue doing so with more blooms, layering the flowers on top and side by side one another until you start to build a full crown of pretty flowers.
you can continue all the way around the circle and fill the entire crown with flowers or leave about one third of the crown empty as i did with my crown. if you do decide to leave an open space on your crown you will want to wrap the exposed wire with floral tape and i did below.
step three. the floral tape is slightly sticky so tightly wrap the exposed wires together from one end to the other.
that's it. this project took about forty minutes from start to finish. i suggest using the pliers as much as possible to wrap your wires. i used my fingers a few times and did get a few small cuts on my hands. i also do not suggest making this crown right after you got a manicure. it resulted in chipped polish. have fun and if you decide to make one please send me a photo. i would love to see what you made.
i posted over at delightful dozen this evening with today's outfit. care to take a look? XOXO!
