Flower crown

I left work early today because i have this dumb head cold, and I went home and took a 3 hour nap and then felt like doing some crafts when I got up. So today I made flower crowns! Nasty gal and other places sell really cute ones, but why buy when you can make.

What you'll need:

  • silk flower assortment
  • floral wire
  • floral tape
  • patience

It's kind of meticulous, so stick with it and don't get too frustrated ^.^

First thing to do is to choose you flowers and a pattern you want to make on the crown. Once you have a direction, make the base of the crown by overlapping a few rounds of floral wire in a circle that fits your head. 

Next use smaller segments of wire to connect your flower bunches to the headband.

Once you finish adding your flowers, it should look kinda like this....

Next you'll wanna wrap all of the exposed wire, or as much as you can, with floral tape.

That's all folks!

Lovely Rachel and her lovely crown
