And now its time to learn how to make your own!

You Will Need:

  • Flowers
  • Flower Wire
  • Flower Tape
  • Scissors
  • Wire Cutters

1. Pick your beautiful flowers.

Assortment Of Flowers

Choose a mix of flowers based on the colors you want your crown to be. Also be sure to get both large and small flowers. You will also need some un-flowered greenery. You may also want to trim any of the leaves on the stems that you don't like.

2. Measure and cut a length of floral wire around your head.

For this you will want to use the wire cutters. Make sure that you leave about 1/4 inch of space so that when we add the flowers, it still fits on your head. Once completed, we will call this the wire base. An example of this wire can be found here.

3. Use flower wire or flower tape to attach your unflowered greenery to the wire base of your crown.

Your wire base is now starting to look great and no longer looks like a piece of wire. When using the flower wire, make sure that none of the ends are facing the inside of the wire base so that you don't hurt yourself when you put the crown on. Flower tape can be found here.

4. Prepare your flowers by cutting the stems to be approximately 1 inch.

5. Time to attach your flowers to the wire base by wrapping flower tape around the stem of the flower and the wire base.

Make sure that you place the blooms facing outward since your head will be on the inside. Also, although we recommend using flower tape, you can also use flower wire to attach these flowers to the wire base, however this alternate method would be much heavier, and you would have to make sure the ends of the wire are not facing inward so you don't hurt yourself when putting on the crown.

6. Continue adding flowers until you are happy with the results!
