DIY Flower Crown


You will need:
Stemmed Flowers - As many as you wish
A plain headband
Artificial leaves
Smaller flowers 

1. Start by aligning where you would like your larger flowers to go and wrap the stem around the headband. Add as many as you wish until it looks something like the picture below.
 2. Next you want to add the smaller flowers in and around the gaps, using the same technique. Spread them as widely as you want or compress several into the same place. I think it looks nice either way.


3. Lastly wrap the leaves around any gaps left, or if you want to cover up any of the bits you are not completely happy with. This also makes it look lovely and realistic.


And that is about it! I love how easy these are to make and also how sweet they make an outfit look. I got pretty much all of my bits to make the crown on ebay, they have a huge array of artificial flowers of all sizes and colours.

What do you guys think and what colours would you choose?

Oh also it is the last day to enter my giveaway, the winner will be decided tomorrow evening at complete random. So if you haven't already entered you can do so here.

  1. So pretty--I love the colors you chose! I would probably do this with blue roses. Those have always been my favorite kind of roses!

  7. Such a gorgeous crown! The little flowers are a great touch.
    I was going to make one like this with very similar red flowers from Hobbycraft as I loved the colour, but they're just too big for my head. Where did you get the little yellow flowers from as they would definitely work? xx
