Flower crowns seem to be all the rage this summer. They are whimsical, carefree and naturally beautiful. Whether you’re heading to a music festival, a wedding or want to make a garland for your favourite bride-to-be,  I’m here to give you the down-low on this summer’s hottest DIY project!

floral wire cutters
leafy greens
flowers (real of faux, your choice!)

Directions:

1. Cut a length of floral wire to form a loose circle around the crown of your head. Rest it atop your head to make sure it fits comfortably, but not too tight. Double wrap the loop so that it is a sturdy but not stiff circle.

2. Fasten shut the wire ends by wrapping them together, then tape the circle shut with your floral tape. Gently wrap the floral tape all the way around the wire so that the circle is smooth.

3. Choose your greenery and flowers. If you’re using real flowers, cut them with plenty of stem, about three inches at the minimum. You can always trim the stems afterwards with your wire cutters. Fill your crown with lush greenery to provide a solid beginning to your garland. This will act as the base to your crown.

4. Tape the flowers and greenery to your crown with the floral tape. Wrap the tape around the stem and the circle about four to five times to secure your crown together. Use a mixture of colours and textures to create a beautiful look!

So I’m curious– where will you wear your crown?  Is it for you or is it a gift for someone special in your life? I made this crown for my sister’s stagette weekend and I think that she absolutely loved it. It was a stunning accessory for her to wear as the bride-to-be on our adventure picnic hike to Cheakamus Lake.  Now I’m looking forward to making my crown #2 (for me! hehe)..I’m thinking of going for this look! What do you think?

The final product!
