Spring is officially here! To celebrate our favorite flower-filled season, we put together this sweet and simple flower-crown tutorial. All you need are some little blooms, floral wire, and floral tape and you’re good to go. The best part? It only takes 15 minutes to make! How darling would these look on your little ones for Easter? Or perhaps for a springtime wedding?
Click through for step by step instructions…
• Flowers with small blooms (I used pretty pink wax flowers!)
• Floral wire
• Floral tape
• Scissors/wire cutters
1. Determine crown size by measuring head circumference. Connect two pieces of floral wire (or any heavy-gauge wire) by wrapping two ends to together; or, simply cut a length of wire if you’re using a wire spool. Gently bend the wire to form a circle shape, leaving the ends loose.
2. Cut a 3.5- to 4-inch section of flowers. Start on one end of the wire (roughly where the crown would rest on the head, behind the ears) and wrap the bundle of flowers to the wire using floral tape. Be sure to pull the tape taught (it stretches!) and wrap tightly to secure; do not cut the tape.
3. Continue adding sections of flowers by placing the next bundle of blooms on top of the stems you just wrapped, securing everything together by wrapping with more floral tape. Continue until you’ve covered about two-thirds of the wire circle.
4. Finish off the last section of flowers by wrapping the stems to the wire with floral tape. Loop the ends of the wire to secure the crown ends to each other.
