You Don't Need To Rob A Bank! Here's How To Make Your Own Flower Crown (DIY)

The flower crown has never ceased to express vibrancy, femininity, and beauty. From Coachella to the runway, the flower crown is everywhere.

This incredibly easy DIY tutorial is going to teach you how to make a flower crown in just 3 steps!

To make your flower crown, you’re going to need:

1. Floral Wire
2. Twine (optional)
3. Scissors
4. Flowers! (Real or Faux)
5. Greenery (e.g. leaves, vines)
6. Heavy Duty Glue or Needle and Thread
7. Floral tape

Step 1: Take your flower wire, and making a loose circle, place it on top of your head for good measure

Taking your craft or floral wire, begin twisting a good length of it. Form a loose circle and place on top of your head for good measure, adjusting and cutting off excess wire as you go. Once you’re happy with the fit (flower crowns aren’t meant to be snug around your head, but shouldn’t fall off too easily either), twist the crown close by overlapping and intertwining until secure. Don’t worry about the bumps and little knots, the rougher and more natural the flower crown looks, the more beautiful it is. The floral tape and flowers will mask any mistakes you might have made along the way.

Step 2: Wrap the base around with floral tape, and begin adding greenery.

Adding a glue to your crown will provide a smoother canvas for you to attach your greenery. You can either wrap around, super glue, or sew on your leaves and vines until it’s nicely strewn around the whole crown. Add as much as you please. These will serve as a beautiful accent for the show stopper - your flowers!

Step 3: It’s time for the part everyone’s been itching to do - the flowers!

Take your flowers, making sure that you keep a little bit of the base of the bud and the stem together, so it’s easier for you to attach them to your crown. When dealing with real flowers, it’s best to use super glue, as the flower is too delicate for the needle work, and twisting the flowers on with the wire might risk crumpling the flowers and losing those valuable petals, and we wouldn’t want that. Faux flowers are fine, and you can either use your floral wire again, or use your needle and thread to do the job for you.

For a much more delicate twist on things (if flower crowns could get any more delicate), instead of having a full circle of wire for the crown, you can opt to have strips of ribbon attached to the ends, that way you can adjust the crown a little better by securing it onto your head with a cute little bow, as seen above.

These beautiful little gems come in all shapes, colors, and textures! From big and bold statements pieces, to tiny, intricate pieces. There’s a flower crown for everyone!
