Depending on the size and color scheme you’d like your flower crown to be, select different varieties of flowers that create a unique blend. For ours, we’re selected daisies, spearworts and pink flowers of varying sizes to create both depth and an appealing look but anything works! Nothing smells better than fresh flowers, but if you’d like to wear your floral headband for more than a couple days, we strongly suggest making yours with artificial flowers like ours.

Instructions:

Take a piece of floral wire, and form it into a circular shape. Rest it atop your head and adjust to see how long you’ll need it to fit loosely. Cut off excessive wire and form the rest into the final shape that you want your crown to be. Use floral tape to keep the wire in a circular shape, wrap the tape around multiple times to both keep the wire in place, and to create a barrier between the wire and your head.

You’ll want to start by adding beautiful greenery that will act as a base of your crown and hide the floral tape. You’ll want to continue adding greenery until all of the tape is covered. Once the base of your crown is looking beautiful, it’s time to add the flowers! Remove stems from flowers and apply a generous amount of hot glue to their base. Once tacky, apply the flowers to the headband and hold until they stay attached on their own. Feel free to add as many or little as you’d like. For ours we chose more in front and less in the back for a fun, layered look.
