Festival Flower Crown

Materials:
Fresh flowers & greenery
Florist’s wire
Florist’s tape
Shears

Step 1:

Using the shears, trim the stems of your flowers to just a few inches long. To determine the amount of wire you’ll need, carefully wrap the wire around your head, being sure to overlap slightly. Once you know the length, cut the wire with your shears and wrap it tightly around itself to create a base for your crown.

Step 2:

Next, begin securing the flowers by selecting a few at a time, and, using your florist’s tape, wrap the stems tightly against the wire.

Step 3:

Continue adding and wrapping the flowers until your wire is completely covered. Enjoy!

    Not sure I’ll be going to any festivals, but wearing a flower crown nevertheless! http://therevolutionelle.com/2014/03/08/when-in-doubt-put-a-flower-crown-on-it/

    this is so pretty! I love that you use fresh flowers rather than silk and then tied them to the crown with floral tape. I did that too in my blog:

    I just hate how most use a wire to tie the flowers onto the crown because I worry about it ending up scratching my head when I wear it!
