DIY: Flower Crown





Make your own crown using fresh flowers! This gorgeous boho accessory is easier to make than you might think! I picked up the wire at a hardware store for about $4.00 and picked the flowers right out of our planters.





Step 1: Take your wire and measure it around your head to create the base for your crown. Make it a little studier by wrapping around twice with a looping motion. Make sure to twist the ends securely, and  tuck in any ends so they don't poke you.

Step 2: Once you've made the base, take some greenery and wrap around the wire crown. If the stems are long and flexible enough you can just weave them in. Ivy or other creeping plants work really well for this, I used Bittersweet nightshade with delicate purple flowers.

Step 3: You'll want to wait to the last minute to add the flowers so they're less likely to wilt. Add your flowers in the same fashion as the greens, concentrating on the front of the crown. If your blooms are heavier, you'll need to use some more wire or tape to secure them in. The yellow petunias I used were light with slender stems, so I just tucked them in.

Step 4: Try on your creation! You might want to use some bobby pins to secure the crown in your hair.
