Floral crowns are not suitable for every oppertunity because it always will be an eyecatcher.
I recommend to wear one with a plain outfit that has a touch of boho in it. A big statement crown for festivals, a small white crown for a wedding or a colorful variation for a night out.
I didn’t know what to think when I first saw a flower crown. It was in the video “Born to die” from Lana Del Rey. Because of her peculiar bearing and the shocking element in that videoclip I didn’t like it at all. My younger brother kept on turning on her music and after a while the crown intrigued me.
Loving the 3d flower trend and so I decided to make my own floral crown, fitting for my festival outfit. I decided to make one with a lot of happy spring/summer colors.
Things you need:
– I used high quality imitation flowers that I bought in a garden centre.
– 5 mm thick iron decoration wire that you can buy in a hobby shop.
– 1 mm tick iron wire
– 2 different kinds of ribbons from a fabric store.
– Some transparent beads and thread for the finiching touch
– a hobby plier that has a part that can cut and a round part to bend small eyes
Follow the easy steps in my photo collage;
1-3 The iron wire:
Sidenote: Bend the 5mm tick iron wire around your head to get the right form and length before cutting.
4-6 the flowers:
Sidenote:When you cut all the flowers from their stalks leave enough to wrap around the 1mm tick iron wire
7-13 Placing the flowers:
sidenote: Before you start assembling the flowers onto the wire, decide how you want that the crown looks like so you can subdivide the flowers on color and size beforehand.
14-15 Finishing off:
Use the small ribbon to perfect the crown and for more solidity. Wrap all the iron and stalks under and inbetween the flowers with the ribbon.
Fix the wide ribbon on the ends of the crown so you can knot it on the backside when wearing the crown.
Tip: Use some sliding pins to fix the crown in your hair for comfotable wearing.
This is the result.
I hope you like it. Have fun with making your own!
