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
Now enjoy it! Trust us, you will look stunning in this flower crown and feel like a princess whenever you have it on.
