How To Make It 
You will need floral wire, floral tape, floral wire cutters, scissors, flowers, and greenery.

1| Measure the Wire

Make sure the flower crown fits perfectly to your head. Cut a two-foot piece of floral wire and hold it up to your head. Cut off any excess wire if the piece is too long.

2| Add the Greenery

Cover the wire with greenery as the base layer of the crown.

3| Mix in Small Flowers

Gather flowers together and secure stems with floral tape onto the crown. The type of flower is entirely up to you, so get creative!

4| Complete with Larger Flowers

Bunch together clusters of larger flowers and use wires to tie each of these to the crown. Tie these side by side until you reach the end.

5| Tie Off Ends

Tie off the ends with a small string or rope. This will not only keep the flowers in place, but it will connect the two sides of the crown for a complete halo.

6| Wear it
