DIY Rose Flower Crown

Simple steps to make your own do-it-yourself flower crown at home. Use garden flowers locally brought florals or choose faux the choice is yours!

There is something so fun and whimsical about flower crowns. Wear them for a party, wedding, festival or at the moment around your home just for fun!

Things you will need, scissors, flowers, florist wire, floral tape (or use the DIY Flower Crown Kit)

1. Take your two pieces of floral wire and fit it around your head so that you know how long it needs to be. Twist the ends together to keep in place. Shape the wire into a circle shape.

2. With your floral tape begin wrapping it around the florist wire making sure you pull it gently as you wrap so the tape becomes sticky. Take a long piece of greenery and twist it around the crown, then secure it with floral tape.

3. Begin making small bouquets with your flowers and foliage. Then wrap the ends with the floral tape to ensure all the wire is covered in florist tape.
