alt

It's just not summer without a decorative flower crown to wear to any outdoor gatherings or weddings (or just a picnic in the park!). It's a simple process to make your own, keep reading to see how!

Supplies:

 

  • Fake Flowers (you can use real ones too!)
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters (not pictured)
  • Natural rope
  • Ribbon

Measure the rope around your head and then double it and tie it in a knot on one side (as pictured above)

 

alt

Start with some of the leaves. Snip off a few at the base with the wire cutters

 

alt

Cut a piece of floral wire and twist it around both the stem and onto both strands of the rope

 

alt

Attach a few other leaves and greens in the same manner spaced out along the rope

 

alt

Now we'll do the same thing but with the flowers. Cutting them at the base and attaching them by wrapping wire in and around the leaves you've already attached

 

alt

Continue until you're satisfied with the look of your floral crown

 

alt

Attach a couple strands of ribbon to each end of the rope with a tight knot. Trim the ends of the knot after tying

 

alt

Try the crown on your head and tie the ribbons in the back to hold it in place.

Now you've got a gorgeous summer floral crown to wear!
