DIY: Flower Crown

June 9, 2014

With a little more wire left over from the DIY candle lanterns we made for my sisters bridal shower, I gasped at my epiphany and realization that I had enough wire to make flower crowns. After I hunted down whatever supplies I could get my hands on, I began constructing my first flower crown as a trial with the intention of making the next crown I do into a DIY post. So here it is! Whoop!

What you'll need:

              • Green tape
              • Wire 
              • Green wires
              • Pliers
              • Fake flowers


1. Measure your head by wrapping the wire you're going to use as your base, around your head once. Then mark it by bending the wire just a little.


2. Wrap the wire around two or more times. Then make a twist to secure the circular base. 


3. Next, take your green tape and wrap it around the wire base. 

I went on pinterest to see how others constructed their flower crowns and noticed that they all used garden/floral tape to wrap around the wire. After going to most of the garden shops, grocery stores, and stationaries I could find, I now know that this country does not supply it's locals with garden/floral tape. :(

4. Now arrange the flowers in the order you want them to be in. 

5. Now take your first flower and begin wrapping the green wire around it to secure it on the base.  


6. Continue wrapping until it's time to place the next flower. This step is mostly on your own estimation on where you decide to place the flowers. 
7. Continue on until you decide to stop. I stopped half way, covering only one side of the base. 


8. Once you're done wrapping the wire around. Wrap the green tape over the wire to secure further. 

9. And that's one side done!


10. Do the same thing on the other side. Wrap, secure, wrap some more, then double secure it with tape. 

* For those of you having a hard time figuring out how to hide the wire that's sticking out. Just slip it into the space between the wires and flower stems. Then you can just wrap the entire crown with green tape to hide the wires. *

And you're done! I took about an hour or so to make one and to properly secure the flowers and leaves onto the crown. If you're having a hard time, don't fret, ask someone for help. 

I hope you all enjoy making this as much as I did.

Have a great day y'all!
