DIY Floral Crown

Hello Lovelies,

I love floral crowns and wanted one for a party I am going, but gosh they are expensive in the shops, so instead of shelling out I got my DIY on, grabbed the glue gun and set to work.  For this little project you will need:

  • fake flowers (mine were from Hobbycraft)
  • floral wire
  • floral tape
  • a glue gun
  • and spare glue
  • sharp scissors 

The first thing to do is plait your wire so you have enough to wrap around your head, my wire came in lengths so I had to use two and tape it twice.

Once the wire is all ready in your little halo, you need to get cracking with the flowers, start with your small flowers that you are going to cover the majority of the crown with you need to snip them of the main stalk then pull of the silk flower part so there is no plastic left, then start sticking around the wire crown.

After you have added your small flowers start adding the larger ones place them around your crown until you are happy with your floral creation.

To finish it all off and make it nice and neat I like to snip off the leaves from one of the plants and line the crown, it makes it look pretty on the inside and you can also see a slight hint of green from the outside.

Hair up or hair down I love the finished
