What's not to love about a delicate flower crown? Flower crowns can add a romantic feel to wedding ensembles, a natural look to outdoor photo shoots, or any day you feel like being fancy!
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Assortment of flowers and greenery
- Start by measuring the floral wire to fit whoever's head you will be making the crown for, and then add a couple inches extra. Cut the wire.
- On one end of the wire, make a loop, wrapping an inch or so of wire several times around the length to secure. This is where the end of the flower crown will hook in.
- Wrap the floral tape around the entire length of wire, stretching as you go (this makes it sticky).
- Cut and prepare all your flowers. The stems need only be 1 or 2 inches long.
- Starting on the end of the crown with the loop, take a small piece of greenery and secure it to the crown with the floral wire. Continue down the length of the crown by securing pieces of greenery and flowers.
- As you get to the end of your flower crown, leave 1" to 1½" of the crown wire to use as a hook to secure to the loop on the opposite end of your crown.
- Secure the last few blooms and cut the floral wire you've been using to wrap the pieces to the crown.
- Hook the end through the loop and twist the end around the crown wire to secure in place.
