I am obsessed with floral crowns and even more obsessed to see how with a little bit of work and time I was able to create my very own DIY floral crowns.
- Greenery cut 2-3 inches long
- Flowers cut 2-3 inches long
- Floral Tape
- Floral Wire
- Wire Cutters
- 30- 45 Minutes
- This was one of the more difficult DIY’s I have attempted. Don’t let it discourage you from trying it out though. Make a few as practice before you need the final product.
Take the wire and measure a circle around your head to see how big to make the crown. Leave just a bit extra so you can tie it off and trim the wire to size.
Wrap the wire with floral tape. This was surprisingly tougher than it sounds. The floral tape will not stick to the wire, but rather stick to itself.
Start by covering the crown with your greenery by attaching the end of the greens to the wire with floral tape. Wrap each piece of greenery you attach to the wire with 3-4 times around with floral tape.
If there are any pieces that are sticking up, use a small amount of floral tape to attach the pieces in other places to the wire.
Once your greens are down you can start adding the flowers. Using the same technique to attach the flowers to wire that we did in the winter boutonniere (you can click here to check it out). Wrap the wire around the crown base, and cover with floral tape.
Once you are happy with your crown twist the ends together to complete the circle!
Place upon your head, and you’re finished!
*When placing the flowers and greenery, I tried to make things as symmetrical as possible. Pick a spot to be the center of your crown, and work back and fourth to keep the piece looking balanced. Also, the thicker the floral wire the more sturdy your crown will be.
