52 Week Challenge: #14 DIY Flower Crown

Monday, April 23

So, I've been seeing a lot of flower crowns lately, and I really wanted to give one a shot myself. Here's some inspiration...
1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Aren't all of these so pretty? Here's what you ned to make your own:
Faux flowers
Plyers with a wire cutter
scissors
Thick wire
Floral wire
Fabric wrapped floral wire
Floral tape
1. Twist thick wire into a hoop to measure your head.
2. Gather a little bunch of flowers, and cut the stems to about 2". Use floral wire to wrap around the hoop.
3. I continued to wrap the little blooms to the hoop, overlapping them so that the wire wold not show. I also changed the direction of the flowers periodically, so that it appeared fuller. Then, I concealed some of the metal wire with some green fabric wrapped wire.
4. I used a macrame knotting technique to cover my wire with yarn, I talked about the method in this post. But, a simpler way would be to cover the wire with floral tape.
Happy Crafting!
