How to Make a Flower Crown | DIY Hair Accessories
What You'll Need to Make a DIY Flower Crown Headband:
- a selection of faux / fake flowers
- florist's wire
- florist's tape
- wire cutters
These super-cute flower crowns are stylish, summery accessories. Plus, they're so fun to make! Follow these simple directions to bring out your hidden flower child.
By the way — these floral crowns are also perfect for the Fourth of July!
Create a crescent-shaped frame for your crown by doubling up a few lengths of florist's wire. Your crown-frame should be seven to nine inches long.
If you're not sure on the length of your frame, measure it on your head to decide on a good length. Then tie a length of ribbon to each end of the frame.
Cut the faux flowers, leaving about an inch of stem. Using wire, attach the flowers securely along the frame, alternating types. Make sure the blossoms all face in the same general direction and are evenly spaced.
Place your flowers where you like them. Then take the florist's tape and wrap it around the base of the crown to cover up the wire and stems. Be sure to cover the tied ribbon ends for an extra clean look!
To wear the flower crown, you can tie it in a nice bow at the nape of your neck.
Summer Flower Crowns
We made two floral crowns. One is a flower girl crown with pink and yellow blossoms. While the other one has red, white, and blue flowers for the Fourth of July.
Aside from faux flowers, you can also play around with different kinds of blooms. You can use silk flowers, flowers made from crepe paper, or even fresh flowers.
Whatever you choose, this is a fun and easy craft. A floral crown headband is the perfect summer accessory for the flower child in you!
