D.I.Y Flower Crown

It has been a while since I did a DIYso today I created my own floral crown, I have seen some really gorgeous floral crowns online but they are so expensive, so I decided to make my own. That way I get it exactly how I want it and at a fraction of the price

You will need,
a selection of flowers (hobby craft do really good realistic ones)
wire cutters
floral tape
and green garden wire

  2. Create a circle of wire to fit your head, I wrapped mine around 4 times to make it sturdy, i secrured it together by cutting pieces 4 inches long and wrapping it around a few sections

 3. Take your flower and cut some more wire and secure it onto the band by wrapping it around the stem of the flower

4.  Now start building up your crown by adding more flowers, keep trying it on to make sure you like how its going. I did mine so it was heavy to one side as I wanted a crown were the flowers were more to the left of my head and not all the way across.


5. Once you have all your flowers on secure the end and hide the wire on the ends with the floral tape



This crown took about an hour to make and cost about £10 to create. It was really easy to do and I love my crown! Another idea would be to make one as an alternative to a hat/fascinator for a wedding or ladies day, for flowers a little more formal but just as beautiful I would goto Randall Ribbons *. They sell gorgeous flowers that are more suitable for occasions like this, I especially love their flowers made from feathers! Amazing if you want to stand out and wear something nobody else will have!
   Let me know if you make one!  
Much Love
