Everyone has their opinion on flower crowns. While they seem to be tied to weddings, they can be used for photo shoots, parties, bridal shower, or just for fun. This tutorial is for real flowers which will make you feel like Tafiti, (Moana anyone?) and smell beautiful.
What you will need:
-Assorted seasonal greenery and flowers. (I love ranunculus, Japanese ranunculus and garden roses- they are simple, yet beautiful)
-25 to 30 inches of moss covered florist wire
-Florist wire (got mine from my favorite place, Target)
-Roll of florist tape (also from available at Target)
Here is where the magic works. These steps and photo are from brides.com. They helped me out so much!
Step 1: Begin by cutting each of your flower and greenery stems about 2 to 3 inches long to make a pile of sprigs that will be woven into your flower crown.
Step 2: Measure the moss-covered florist wire to fit around your head and secure it in a circle by twisting the ends around each other. This piece will serve as the base of your crown.
Step 3: Attach the first sprig to the moss-covered florist wire with florist wire by wrapping the two together.
Step 4: Cover the florist wire with florist tape and wrap it around the first piece, leaving extra tape at the end to begin securing additional sprigs.
We are imagining a girls brunch with a flower crown making station. Gah! Perfection for spring or summer!
