I am excited for today’s post. If you remember, I made a flower crown for myself and a flower corsage for Cleo in my farewell photoshoot with her. Well, I wanted to show you all how I made that flower crown.
When I made my original crown, summer flowers were still available. But, you will see, flower crowns are equally gorgeous with fall colors and flowers.
My method is very simple. I realize there are probably many other methods and techniques to a flower crown, but I wanted to keep it as easy as possible with as few materials as possible. So, I have a three step process that only uses flowers, floral wire, and floral tape!
Last time, I made myself a flower crown. But, this time, I wanted to make one to fit our adorable border collie/Pitbull mix, Lady. She was the only one willing to be my model, and she definitely seems to adore being a flower child. Plus, is there really anything better than a Pitbull wearing a flower crown?! I think, not.
I adore flowers. If I had more disposable income, I would have a huge floral bouquet on my dining room table every week. It is the easiest way to give your home an instant art piece, pop of color, and element of nature. Some of my favorite flowers include: peonies, dahlias, and hydrangea.
How to: Flower Crown in 3 Easy Steps
I recommend buying three bouquets of a mix of flowers you enjoy and look beautiful together. You can also add in some baby’s breath or greenery for some added dimension.
- Take some floral wire and measure the circumference around your head.
- Start at the back of your crown and add flowers using floral tape in one direction.
- At this point, decide how you want the flower crown to look and add flowers accordingly. Cut flowers leaving 1”-1 ½” of stem, and remove any leaves.
- Use floral tape to secure the stem to the floral wire. Add another flower next to the first flower. Continue securing in the same direction.
- If a flower seems to be slipping from the flower before it, use a little floral wire to secure it better. Then, go over it with floral tape.
- Continue filling in the crown with flowers, until you reach the back of the crown. Wear the crown and feel like the queen that you are!
This process takes a little bit of time to cover the entire circumference of the crown, but if you play your favorite music in the background, it goes by fast! Plus, wearing a crown and feeling like a goddess is more than worth the effort. It’s fun to splurge and do something for yourself or your adorable fur baby every once in a while. 🙂
Here are a few examples of the side effects from wearing a flower crown (aka instant joy and happiness):
I hope this post inspires you to make yourself a crown! There’s something about a flower crown that makes everything feel a little more whimsical.
My next post is going to be a breakfast recipe! I’m looking forward to sharing my acai antioxidant boost smoothie bowl. It is fruit filled and fabulous.
