DIY: How to Make a Flower Crown
Making your own flower crown is easier than you might realize, though it might cost you more than a pre-made flower crown, depending on how much your supplies cost. Fortunately, Pro Flowers put together a four-step guide to making your own flower crown.
To get started, you’ll need floral tape, scissors, a roll of craft wire or twine; real or artificial flowers and greenery to fill in the crown. Some of the statement flowers recommended for flower crowns include daisy, spray rose, dahlia, peony, anemone and carnations.
Baby’s breath, poms, astilbe, statice flowers, snapdragon, myrtle, ivy, leather fern, eucalyptus and lemon leaf are some of the recommended filler flowers. For greenery, Pro Flowers recommends ivy, myrtle, dusty miller, lemon leaf and eucalyptus.
Before you begin the crown construction, measure your head with the wire to determine sizing. Next, create flower bunches by wrapping the stems together with floral tape. Pro Flowers recommends making around eight flowers for the crown.
Combining statement florals with filler flowers will give you a more balanced flower crown and centering a selection of flowers will create a floral focal point, Pro Flowers notes. After you have your flower bunches made, use craft wire or floral tape to attach them to the crown one.
If you’re using fresh flowers, Pro Flowers suggests making your flower crown a couple of days in advance and keeping it in the fridge. You can refresh the flowers by spraying them with water.
