DIY Floral crown

Floral crowns...So I think it's no secret that I love halos and flower crowns! You can see my first post about making halos here. Morgan, a friend I work with made this one and it is so so beautiful!!!!! I wish I could have taken it home with me.  Anyways, scroll for instructions on how to make one yourself for fun weekends ahead or for festival season!  Here we go..

Materials:

  • Flowers of your choice
  • Skinny floral wire
  • Wire cutters or clippers
  • Green floral tape
  • Scissors and ribbon (if you want to tie it in the back!)

Start your flowers with a short stem. It doesn't have to be to long because then your halo will start getting bulky but you will need a slight stem so when you wire and tape it will have more support.

You'll push the wire through the stem horizontally near the head of the flower.

Next, bend the wire over, it doesn't need to be equal length.

Using your green floral tape, start wrapping the stem and wire with the tape. Tape them tight so it doesn't come undone. Start at the top and work down. You don't need to tape all the way down because you'll end up cutting half the wire end off anyways.

The flowers we used were ranunculus and cymbidium orchids in bright spring colors!

We started by taking our floral wire and making it into a circle and shaping it to your head (mine was pretty small, I have a very small head!) Ha! Wrap your entire head piece with green floral tape. It's easier to start at the end and work toward the other end by taping the flowers on the wire band as you go. It's hard to go back if you want to add something in so maybe it would be wise to have a plan of where you are going to place your flowers.

You can use wire to secure anything that may have moved in the process.

To finish off we just bent in the wire ends (this can also help to tighten it) then finished it off with some pretty sheer ribbon to hide the wire!
