It’s DIY Tuesday again, and today we are going to re-cap one of my all-time favorite DIY classes that we’ve done, flower crowns! This is such an absolutely darling project for any wedding, and the raw materials are also seriously affordable! This look can be created for a gorgeous bridal look, or for your darling flower girls!
- floral wire
- baby’s breath
- floral tape
Step One: Using your floral wire, shape it to the size of your head. Unless you’re creating a flower girl crown, you will likely have to use two pieces so trim the excess off using the pliers. Once your base crown has been made, begin to add the baby’s breath to the crown. Cut off individual pieces of baby’s breath and secure it to the base crown with floral tape.
Step Two: As you begin to lay out the baby’s breath, be aware of your baby’s breath placement. Make sure not to lay two sections of flowers over one another, instead lay the floral portions over the bare stem sections. As you begin to fill up most of your crown with baby’s breath, you will now want to focus on covering up the sections where the floral tape is showing through. To do this, instead of taping on new pieces begin to weave shorter stems of baby’s breath into the spaces between the base crown and the taped on pieces of baby’s breath.
Step Three: Now that you’ve filled your crown with your finishing floral pieces. For this, you will not want to use floral tape, because it will show through. Instead cut the roses with about a two inch stem. Once you have the stems cut, begin to weave these into the existing crown. As you begin to do this, decide where you want the front of your crown to be. In this front section, place the floral thicker to make a big statement. Continue to add the flowers until you’re happy and voila!
