I can't imagine a better hair accessories for summer than a gorgeous fresh flower crowns. They are prefect for festivals, summer weddings or birthday parties... and they're really easy and fun to make!
All you need is a bit of wire (you could substitute that with a bendy branch like an olive branch or some ruscus), floral tape, scissors and flowers of choice.
Wrap the wire into a circular shape and measure to your head to see if the crown will fit properly. Then wrap some pretty greenery around it to cover the wire, secure it with some floral tape. Cut the stems of your blooms to 2-3'' in length and then attach them to the crown with floral tape. That's how easy it is!
You can make the crown as big or small as you want, it all depends on what flowers you choose. It would look fantastic if you used big flowers like peonies!
I love playing with flowers and usually make floral crowns whenever I have some blooms left over from arrangements. Making floral crowns would make for an amazing bridal or baby shower activity if you are looking for something different to do!
Have you ever tried making a floral crown?
