DIY Floral Crown
You don't need a wedding or a festival to try your own DIY flower crown, but those two occasions are the perfect time to don a pretty flower head dress!
Create Your Floral Crown
This project could not be easier. With just a few professional florist materials you'll be creating your own masterpiece in no time!
Floral Crown Materials
- 1 roll sticky floral tape
- 1 roll floral wire - Any size or gauge will do that's comfortable for you.
- Roses or other small and tightly gathered blooms
- Wax flowers, baby's breath or other tiny little clustered bloom for accenting your roses or focal flowers
- Scissors or Wire cutter
Floral Crown How To
Start by cutting a piece of your floral wire that's long enough to fit around your head and add a few inches to serve as your hook and loop (or eye) to clasp your floral crown.
Next, twist a couple of inches of one end of your wire into a loop (eye).
Now, cover your wire in floral tape by EITHER wrapping the tape around the wire OR laying the wire lengthwise down a long strip of floral tape and wrapping that around the wire.
NOTE: If you haven't worked with floral wire before it's super cool, but there's trick! You have to pull it and stretch it to make it tacky and able to stick. I like to pull off a few pieces at a time and get those a little tacky so I have them ready to go for when I'm wrapping my blooms onto my covered wire.
Once your wire is prepped you're ready to start adding blooms.
With your pruners, trim your blooms down to about a 1/2"-3/4" stem, just long enough to secure to your wire. You want to keep your crown lightweight too, so getting rid excess stem weight is a good idea.
Next, start at your HOOK end (not loop) end about 2" from the every end and attach your first bloom with your blooms facing TOWARD the loop (as if you were going to secure it). This is important because you want enough floral coverage to cover your hook and loop when your crown is complete.
Continue adding blooms as you overlap your floral tape to hide it from view. You can make your blooms as close or as far from each other as you'd like. Have fun!
When you're approaching the loop end, affix your final bloom as close to the end as possible.
Fold your hook and fit into your loop. Do that and adjust sizing as needed.
Check your work in the mirror and enjoy!
