Over the years, flower crowns have become more and more popular world wide. Whether it’s a music festival, a wedding or just an afternoon out with your best friends, nowadays flower crowns seem to be the go-to accessory. There’s something whimsical and girly about flower crowns, and they add something unique to your outfit or your whole wedding look. This DIY flower crown tutorial by Lauren Conrad is super easy and won’t take you hours to complete. We recommend doing it with your besties, it’s a fun project you’ll all enjoy doing together!
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Wire cutters (floral)
- Flowers (real of faux, your choice!)
1. First, take a piece of floral wire and form it into a circular shape. Rest it atop your head to see how long you need the wire to be to form a loose crown around your head. Cut off excessive wire, and form the rest into a circular shape. Tape the circle shut with floral tape (you’ll want to wrap the tape around the wire several times)
2. Choose your greens and flowers. Start your crown with a layer of pretty greenery that covers the wire, which will act as the base of your crown. Once you have your greenery, you’ll tape it to the crown with your floral tape.
3. Once you have the greenery taped to the crown, it’s time to add your flowers. To attach each flower to the crown, make sure the flower stems are at least 3 inches long (you can cut off excess stems with scissors or wire cutters), and, using floral tape, tape the stem to the crown (see photo below). Just like for the greenery, you’ll want to wrap the tape around the stem about four to five times to make sure it stays.
