Tutorial: Flower Crown

Tutorial: How to make a feminine, spring or summer, silk flower crownHeadbands are a fun summer trend. Last week I shared a fabric headband tutorial that was pretty and functional. This week's flower crown is a bit less practical. But how can you not feel beautiful when you are bedecked in flowers?

I used silk tweedia and delphiniums, but you can easily use different types of flowers to suit your mood. This feminine, floral crown would be a beautiful bridesmaid or flower girl accessory at a spring or summer wedding.



You will begin by creating the base of the crown with the 24-inch length of wire.

Note: If you are making this for a younger girl, you may use an 18-20 inch length of wire instead.
Use the pliers to bend over the wire about 1/2 inch from the end to form an elongated loop.
Insert the other end of the wire into the loop and bend it about 1/2 inch from the end to secure it.
Gently bend the wire into a circle.
Next, you will prepare the flowers.
Using a scissors, trim the blossoms from the main stem.
Make sure to leave about 2 inches of stem on each flower so it can be secured to the crown.
Cut off 2-3 inches of floral tape and tightly wrap it around the joining loops on the crown.
Cut off 2-3 inches of floral tape. Position the first flower. Starting at the base of the blossom, tightly wrap the tape around the stem and the crown wire.
It's okay if the floral tape is wrapped past the end of the stem.
Position the next flower, just below the first and secure it with 2-3 inches of tightly wrapped floral tape.

Continue securing the flowers around the crown. I placed my flowers in a pattern (1 delphinium, 2 tweedia), but it would be fine to place the flowers in a random order.

Once all of the flowers are attached, it's ready for your favorite princess to wear. And, don't worry, I won't judge if that princess is you ;-)
