Flower crowns have been taking the world and our IG accounts by storm recently. Whether it’s a baby shower, a wedding or just playing dress up, flower crowns seem to be the go-to accessory nowadays, and I am loving the trend! I made an easy Christmas Floral Crown for the girls to wear for our Christmas photo this year and I am in LOVE with how they turned out.
I put together a tutorial for all of you so that you can make your very own Christmas floral crown for the holidays or for any occasion. Take a look…
How to Make Flower Crowns
- floral wire (I used this one)
- floral coiled wire (like this one)
- floral tape (you can buy some here)
- floral wire cutters
- flowers or berries (real of faux, your choice!)
- optional: glue gun
1. Take a piece of floral coiled wire and form it into a circular shape. Rest it atop your head, or your child’s, to see how long you need the wire to be to form a loose crown around your head. Cut off excessive wire, and form the rest into a circular shape. Tape the circle shut with floral tape (you’ll want to wrap the tape around the wire several times to keep it secure).
2. Choose your greens and flowers and or berries. You’ll want to start your crown with a layer of pretty greenery that covers the wire, which will act as the base of your crown. Once you have your greenery, you’ll secure it to the crown with your floral wire at the base of each greenery stem (like pictured below) . Then wrap it around the coiled wire and secure with the floral wire again so it covers up the coiled wire.
3. Once you have greenery secured to the crown, it’s time to add your flowers and berries. To attach each flower to the crown, make sure the flower stems are at least 3 inches long (you can cut off excess stems with scissors or wire cutters), and, using floral wire or floral tape, secure the stem to the crown. Just like for the greenery, you’ll want to wrap the tape around the stem about four to five times to make sure it stays, or use the floral wire in place.
4. Add flowers or berries to as much or as little of the rest of the crown as you’d like.
To be honest, there’s no wrong way to make a flower crown. It really depends on your style and what occasion you are making them for. I can’t wait to make a girly floral crown for my girls in the Spring. It took me a little while to get the hang of it but I am confident you will be able to make your own floral crown with ease! Practice makes perfect, and I am not sure there’s anything better to practice making than these sweet little crowns.
