Because You’re a Princess, You Need a Crown


HEy everybody!!! It has been requested that I show you how to make the flower crowns in some of the more recent photos of my daughter. I am excited because it gives me a reason to make a new one (or five) and I adore flower crowns. I love what they add to my pictures and I am totally in love with the ethereal atmosphere they add.

Before I start, I should tell you there are definitely multiple ways to make these and this is just one of those methods, so feel free to follow these instructions, adjust and adapt where you want or need, and then PLEASE PLEASE show me what you come up with!! I love to see what others are working on!

You ready? Okay, here we go!

Materials you will need: 

-brown floral wire

-green floral wire

-green floral tape

-faux flowers

-snips or nippers to cut (I use scissors or cuticle cutters)

Step one: take two twine wrapped wire pieces and twist them together at one end.

Step Two: Wrap said wire pieces around the head to be adorned with the crown, then twist together when you get it where it fits how you want it. Make sure to leave extra room all around because when you attach the flowers, they will use that room right up.

Step Three: Cut your floral pieces from the bouquet or from their stems.

Step four, using the green floral wire and green floral tape, arrange and apply flower cuttings in a way that makes you happy.

Step five: feel glorious with a gorgeous floral crown perched atop your head.

All done! I think I’ll wear this one to do my grocery shopping….spice life up a bit 😉

Please share what you make with me! Wednesday Sweden
