DIY Flower Crown


I have seen some really darling ladies wearing this flower crowns around, and for my mom's birthday, we decided to make some in celebration (sure does beat the old pointy party hats).

I took some help from the lovely bridget and miss james and of course, used a few of my own ideas.

You will need:
Floral Wire thick and thin
Floral Tape
Silk Flowers
Scissors
Pliers

I started out with thicker floral wire, so I just wrapped it around once and twisted the ends together and secured with floral tape.

Then I created little blooms and taped them with floral tape.IMG_2525 IMG_2526
After I built a few blooms of flowers, I started to wrap them with thin floral wire tightly around the crown. Then I began building upon each one as I went.

Sometimes I would just add one flower or sometimes 5, and then I add a few leaves in the back and taped the back in floral tape.

Here we celebrate by matching and eating soup.
