DIY: Flower crown ♥

Hello lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

Remember how promised you a little DIY post? Well, here goes. Hopefully this is any helpful!

So today, I give my view on how to make a flower crown from fabric flowers.

You'll need:

iron wire
wire cutters
pliers (for handling wire)
scissors
florist's tape, green
silk/fabric flowers & leaves

Feel free to get as much flowers as you want, that's the part that makes your crown unique. Ready? Let's get started!

First, measure a wire that goes around your head three times. Then, before cutting the wire, wrap it around itself like in the pic, so that you'll have a "ring" that fits to your head. You should now have the wire going four times around. Use pliers to secure the ends.

Next, prep your flowers and leaves if necessary. For example, mine were from IKEA, so they had still a lot of stalk and extra things on them that weren't needed for the crown.

Then, attach the greens (if you have those) around the wire crown with the florist's tape.

It should look something like this. After this, attach the flowers the way you want: all the way around, or just on the front or whatever you like. I put mine all over the crown. You can secure the flowers with thin wire, but that's totally optional. For me, it was the best option.

The ready product looks like this. Well, at least, mine does. Yours might be totally different.

And it's like this when worn. Pretty neat, huh?
