DIY Flower Crown Tutorial

I’ve lusted after flower crowns for a long time and if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know all about my love for the hair accessory. But it’s been really difficult to find one that I absolutely love and want to pay for. A lot of them are either not what I want or so expensive I can’t afford them anyway.
So after a bit of research, I decided to dive into the world of DIY Flower Crowns.

Excuse any bad photography, I was also watching Green Street while doing this and if you know anything about Charlie Hunnam, you’ll understand how I could get distracted.

Also, I have to point out that these flowers cost me very little. The long yellow and pink garlands were only $2.50 each and they have roughly 50 flowers on them so that’s a lot of flower crown for not a lot of money. The larger flowers cost a little more but I bought fewer because they would act as the center piece of the headband.

  • Fake Flowers
  • Floral Wire (various colours)
  • Floral Tape
  • Wire Cutters
  • Scissors
  • Beads

I started off by measuring my head with the floral wire, adding two thumbs worth of wire and then chopping it to size. That should fit around your head nicely. I wrapped the wire around at the ends and tucked it around itself so there aren’t any wire ends poking through.
Then I trimmed the fake flowers to the size I wanted and attached them to the wire headband with more floral wire. I spent a while arranging the flowers so they suited the headpiece and looked the way I wanted.

I also strung beads on some floral wire and worked that into my floral crowns (I made more than one).
When I was happy with my flower crown, I used floral tape to hide any wire I didn’t want on show.

I also wanted to make the headband a bit bigger so it can be adjusted depending on people’s head size.

Are you going to make your own flower crown?

  • it looks so good! I want one Saaaam! I've been meaning to try and make one forever but nooooo time! I might have to try it now though xx

  • Making one will always be way more fun than buying one (especially because the ones I've seen are always so expensive)

  • We could totally make these together when you come to visit 😛 And Sunae too. xxxx

  • Ugh I know! I was looking at ASOS last night and they wanted $98 for a flower crown with fake strawberries in it. That's just daylight robbery.
    And I did have a lot of fun making this!
