DIY flower crowns you can make to adorn yourself with blossoms!
Spring and summer are the seasons of music festival and weddings, both at which it is completely acceptable to adorn yourself with flower crowns. Of course, we think it is pretty much okay to rock a floral crown any time of year you feel so inspired to do so.
To get the floral crown look, you could purchase a fresh version from a floral designer (at great expense to your bank account), buy a dried/faux version online from someplace like Etsy, or make your own from fresh, dried or faux flowers. Making your own is probably the most economical choice, as well as being the more creative option as well.
Making flower crowns isn’t really as complicated as it may sound. First, you must make the decision whether you will use fresh flowers or not. For a wedding, you may desire the ephemeral beauty of fresh blooms, while if you want a floral crown to wear at the festival circuit, a dried or faux flower crown might be the better choice. Make the decision, then purchase and/or pick your blooms. Fresh picked wildflowers are always a great choice–even if they don’t last long.
Supplies Needed to Make Flower Crowns:
- Flowers (dried, fresh or faux), greenery, ribbons, and other additions
- Floral Tape
- Floral Wire
- Wire Cutters
