Pinned It Tried It - Flower Crowns

So, how do you make 2 flower crowns in less than an hour?

With a good helping of luck.

I went to Wal-Mart the night before to purchase silk flowers on sale (used for the greenery) and finished my trip to Hobby Lobby for the rest.

What to Get:
  • floral tape
  • wire cutters
  • floral wire
  • silk flowers
  • thick green or rustic floral wire to use as the base.
  1. Using the thick green wire, measure your head for the correct size.  Give some extra wiring to adjust to the flowers, and adjust for how you want to wear it (as a headband, hippie-style across the forehead, as a halo sitting on the head, etc.)  Halo-style is my favorite, as shown in the photos below by Liz and Hannah.
  2. Twist a second layer of the think green wire for base support.
  3. Map where you want the flowers, greenery, and spacing.
  4. Working backward on the crown, wrap the thin green wire around the silk flower stem, and attach it to the base.  Hook the green wire onto the stem, so that it doesn't fall off.
  5. Cover the thin green wire with floral tape.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until finished!
