DIY: Flower Crowns

DIY: Flower Crowns

With Coachella ending this weekend, we were left with much inspiration on trends that we saw there. The flower crown being one of the most prominent trends. It is never too late to wear your flower crowns, as there are many more music festivals ahead! This fun DIY will make you want every day to be music festival day! Have fun!


Supplies:
• Silk or fabric flowers
• Thin floral wire in green
• Thick rustic floral wire in brown
• Wire cutters
• Felt
• Scissors
• Glue gun and glue


Follow these easy steps:

Step 1. Take the thick rustic floral wire and create a loop for your head. Choose the best fit and size, then twist the ends to close the loop.

Step 2. Select the flowers you would like on your crown, and lay them out. This way you have an idea of how you want your crown to look.

Step 3. Pull the long stem off the flower, then cut the little stem behind the flower. This way it lays nicely on the crown.

Step 4. Cut a 1x1" square or circle from a felt sheet. As long as the square/circle of felt is smaller than the flower, you should be fine. The felt will be the foundation for the flower.

Step 5. Attach the felt square/circle with the glue gun to the back of the flower, then when dry glue onto the rustic wire.

Step 6. Once dried (about 3-5 minutes), you can add smaller flowers to fill in gaps (if any). Attach the smaller flowers by wrapping around the crown with the small floral wire. Add as many flowers as desired to create your ideal look.

Step 7. Enjoy your flower crown!
