Flower crowns are a MUST for the spring and I haven’t been able to resist making one too! There are many versions, types and colors… But in this tutorial I wanted to make a simple yet striking version only using white roses and making the crown with a section of flowers aside.
With a few materials and just 15 minutes you can join the nymphs of the spring wearing a flower crown too…
- Fabric flowers, plastic or natural flowers (color, size and shape of your choice)
- Green floral wire (available at florists)
- Special florist green tape or green satin ribbon (also found at the florist)
1. Remove the flowers from the stems.
2. Cut the neck of the flower that holds it. (it’s like a little tube)
3. Insert this tube into a wire bent in half.
4. Enter it in the middle of the flower. The tube it’s used as a top so the wire dosen’t fall through.
5. Pull the wire through the flower.
6. Open the wire. (If you do this DIY with natural flowers just pull the wire through the flower and follow the same steps)
7. Do this with all the flowers you want to put on your crown. Twist the wire of each flower to the next one putting the flowers as close as posible.
8. Make the flower section the size you want and twist the smaller flowers at the ends. If you want to take your flower crown that goes all around, continue this process until you have the measure of your head.
9. For a more romantic and natural look I’ve put a few leaves at the ends to frame the flower section.
10. Close the crown twisting more wires until you have the diameter of your head.
11. To finish the crown cover the wires by twisting the florist tape or the green satin ribbon around it.
You can wear this crown with the flower section at the front as in this photo or to the side as in the first photo of this post. If you have a nice hairdo the flowers will look great backwards.
I hope you enjoyed this post and you get inspired to make your flower crown … Ideal for any occasion this spring.
Until a new post DIY’er! 😉
