Flower crowns are so easy and the materials are super accessible for just about everyone.
Step one is gathering your materials. You can use one kind of flower or a combination of blooms. For this one, I decided on some pretty blue hydrangeas, a couple bunches of them, each costing only one dollar. You’ll also want floral tape and strong scissors or snips.
With a measuring tape, or even a piece of yarn or string if you don’t have a measuring tape, measure the circumference of your head–or if it’s for someone else, measure them. Be sure to measure where you want the crown to sit. This will give you the length you’ll want to make the floral rope before we shape it into a crown.
Start by pulling off the small bunches of blooms from the larger stem or bush. (As I did in the photo above.) You may have to snip them if they won’t pull off easily. Next, you’ll want to remove the smaller bunches of blooms. (See photo below.) Be sure to keep track of all the little blooms! They’ll be going back on the stems.
While the stems are bare, use the floral tape to attach them together, making sure to leave the area the blossoms will slip back onto empty.
It’s best to reattach the blooms as you go so you can see the design as you work. But if that makes it difficult, you can leave them off until the very end.
Continue this process until the floral rope you’re making matches the measurement you took earlier.
Use the same floral tape technique to join the end to the beginning and you’re all set.
A flower crown that will last for ages and only cost you a few dollars!
You know I’m gonna want to see pictures of your project. 😉
