DIY Flower Crown

DIY Flower crown - Learn how to make your own flower crown

DIY is fun to do, it is all about practicing and enjoying what you do. For my wedding, thanks to Pinterest and all other inspirational ideas, I decided to make my own DIY flower crown for myself and for the guests. Once you get hold of it, everything get easier then you can easily get creative and come up with impressive designs.Β 

You don’t need many things to make these crowns, you can even make it with the flowers you already have in the vase from last week which you are planning to throw away.Β Once you use them, all you need to do is just spraying some golden/silver paint to get them polished. You can find what you need and how to do the DIY flower crown below. Even if you don’t have headband you can use simple wire to make headband shape or even use ribbons and wrap the flowers around it. So let’s get started…

DIY Flower Crown

Supplies

  • Flowers (fresh or fake, however you want)
  • Greenery
  • Headband (if you can’t find it, you can use floral wire as well)
  • Floral tape
  • Wire cutter

Instructions

  1. Decide on shape and how big you want your crown to be
  2. Arrange the flowers and greenery you want to use for your crown and cut them with wire cutter to get rid of excessive bits
  3. You can start with greenery or just flower of your choice, so decide your main feature then place it on the headband
  4. Once you decide where you want the flower/greenery, you will tape the stemΒ to the headband with floral tape
  5. After fixing the first flower/greenery, then you can add rest one by one by fixing the stems with floral tape and creating your floral crown’s shape that you want
  6. Once you are happy with the shape, wrap the leftover tape to the headband to fix it properly

It is all about your imagination and how big or small you want your DIY flower crown to be. It is fun to do it and with a little bit practice it doesn’t take much time. You can make it for the weddings, birthday parties or even just for yourself, people will love it!

      • I made this ones with the leftover flowers and I didn’t have a chance to take photos of the original crowns (I made over 50, crazy!). I made a big one for myself, you can kinda see it in this photo.
        Ignore the state of my hair, after so much dancing, it’s a big mess!

  • Me and DIYs are like oil and water, we just don’t get along. I love reading DIY posts and each time I swear up and down that I will start getting into it and nope, nothing ever happens. I just give up half way because the results just never look as good as the original.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Haha, oil and water you say? So exactly like in my case, haha! I’m dreading already all the DIY projects my sons will have at school in case they will need my help. LOL! x

    • You should keep practising, like Dagmara said you will be helping your son soon so you need to get good at it πŸ™‚

  • This looks so pretty! I am dying to try this out with fake flowers, so it’ll last, but I find it difficult to find fake flowers which don’t look tacky. I’ll keep my eyes open though! x

    http://www.bisoushollyolivia.co.uk

    • It is really hard to find real looking fake flowers, I had to search a lot and ended up finding decent ones. This is such a fun and easy diy, you should give it a try! x

  • This is so beautiful! I’m not the best at DIY’s but I’ll keep an eye on this if I get invited to a summer wedding. I’d love an excuse to wear it πŸ™‚

    • It is so simple, I am sure you will do a great one πŸ™‚

  • Such a fun and cute idea! I bought one from Primark a few years ago but I really want to make one myself!

  • Such a lovely DIY project. I’m not a DIY-er, so I’ve never made a flower crown.. but my sister has made a bunch and they turn out beautifully. I love the simplicity of the flower crown that you made. Also, really great images and steps.. very clear. Sometimes instructions are like “what!?” and a deterrent to creatives. But these step by step tips are easy enough!!

    I tend to like DIY things depending on the occasion, for day to day I usually can’t be bothered but then when it comes to things like Halloween I love getting crafting and making my own costume or something like that.

    This flower crown DIY is really cool, I’d probably use fake flowers though to avoid attracting bees or something like that :p
