How To Make A Flower Crown In 6 Quick Steps?

You may create beautiful crowns year-round with flower crowns. Fall and winter are not the only times you may use flower crowns; you can also make them during spring and summer. It’s all a question of the flowers and greenery you select.
You may make any design you want with various colors, shapes, and sizes as you are not limited to options. You can quickly achieve this by doing the following.

  1. Step #1. Select the flowers of your choice

    Flower picking is one of my favorite things to do. It’s a lot of fun to “pick” real or silk flowers to construct a bouquet that is full of the blooms and colors you adore.
    When collecting the flowers, I had my niece in mind. So I picked some of her favorite colors together with some other nice-looking ones that would look amazing on her.
    I always have the flowers held in my hand during picking. This is because they usually give me an impression of how they will look like a bouquet.

  2. Step #2. Create the Crown

    The most straightforward approach to making a crown is to wrap the wire around your head three or four times and allow for some breathing room. It’s best if it isn’t too tight.
    You can always confirm the circumference of the head of the person you are making it for. You can also do an estimate if the person is not around. 
    Once done, you can now fix the ends together. Again, do this using floral tape to prevent the wire from poking out.

  3. Step #3. Wire wrapping and bundling

    Once done fixing the crown, the next step is setting the flowers. It is always advisable to leave about 2 inches of stem allowance whenever you cut flowers.
    If you plan to have a bundle of flowers fixed in one spot, wrap them together using a wire. After that, you can wrap it to the crown. However, if you wish to use a single flower, for example, a large daisy, you can cover it directly to the crown.
    Remember: You can wrap them into a bundle without using a wire when using fresh flowers. However, if you plan to use the flower more than once, you need to wrap it with the wire.

  4. Step #4. Wrap it with Floral Tape

    Using the floral tape, wrap it on the stems and the wire. By doing this, you are simply giving shape to the crown.
    Despite holding the crown together, the floral tape gives it a nice look when complete and prevents the wire from poking the head of the wearer.

  5. Step #5. Do This Several Times Until Done

    While attaching the flowers to the crown, always ensure they face the same direction. The trick looks best on a crown with no ribbons tied. It creates a magical make that does not show the start or ending point to the crown.
    If you plan to attach ribbons to your crown, you will have to change the flowers’ direction. The trick gives the crown an impression of flowers emerging from the back.
    The best result of a directional change is achievable when you don’t do it from the front to center but from a single side.
    The best way to accomplish the directional change is not front and center but off to one side. Another good technique is to cross a longer-stemmed flower behind a shorter one to hide the difference and make it seem more natural.

  6. Step #6. Adding Ribbon

     Having a ribbon tied to your flower crown is not a must. However, you can add the ribbon by leaving an allowance of about 2 inches at the back covered in floral tape. The length, coloring, or amount you need on your crown is a personal choice.
    I attach them by making a long string, folding it in half, inserting the ends through the middle of the crown, pulling tight, and tying a knot at the bottom for further stability.
    When you follow the above steps, you can come up with a flower crown made of your choice.
    Flower crowns are an attractive way to make your hair an accessory. You can create these little art pieces with flowers, leaves, vines, or other natural materials to create a unique look for any occasion. Flower crowns are also great for adding texture and dimension to naturally curly hair! 

Tools:

  • Flowers
  • A scissor that you will use to cut the ribbons and flower tape
  • A flower tape

10 How To Make a Flower Crown Ideas in 5 Quick Steps

Flower crowns can be made from silk flowers to fresh garden roses. The type you choose will depend on the event, your style, and what’s in season at the time. It’s best not to wear one outside if it is raining because they are only meant as decorative pieces that need special care afterward. If you want something more durable but still pretty, try using fake flowers glued onto ribbon instead of florals. Here are some other ideas for materials to make a flower crown:

  • Step #2. Cut your vines.
    Cut two pieces of vine to the length of the circumference you measured, plus an extra foot or so for stability and manipulating into position. Measure out a small section at first to get used to the amount that will fit around your head, then continue measuring the rest in chunks.
  • Step #3. Create an outer ring by wrapping vines around the head.
    Wrap the two pieces of vine around your head to create an outer ring, then tape into position with floral tape. This is what you will attach your flowers to, so make sure it is sturdy.
  •  Step #4. Make an inner ring with other vines.
    Cut another two pieces of vine similar to the length of outer ring vines. With these, create another inner ring by wrapping them around your head in the opposite direction.

    Once you have your primary wire with the attached flowers, add a piece of floral tape on the back of the wire. It will help secure the wire when you connect it on top of your head.

#10. Ivy flower crown

Ivy flower crown

 Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Floral Wire
  • Glue Gun
  • Flowers

 Steps:

  • Step #1. Gather the leaves you need
    This is an area where it’s better to go more than you think you might like. Once you cut them, they lose their strength and will wilt fast if not kept in water. If you’re using ivy (which I recommend), make sure to find vines with many leaves per stem.
  • Step #2. Prepare the leaves for the wires
    Cut the longest leaves down with a pair of sharp scissors and keep them aside. Remove all the tiny leaves at the base of each leaf and discard them, as they wilt quickly and don’t look nice in crowns.
  • Step #3. Attach flower wires to the leaves
    Prepare your wire by cutting it in half. Make a slight bend at the end of each piece and use that to attach them to the leaf stems. If you don’t have flowers already, this is the time to do it. A glue gun works better for this part because you will need minimum damage to your leaves.
  • Step #4. Begin to assemble your flower crown
    Start with some leaves and add your wire to their stems. Then add around 10 roses of one color, wind the wire so it’s on top of the flowers, and add some leaves. Next, add about ten more roses of another color, wrap them up and add some leaves again. Repeat until you finish all your roses/colors/leaves.
  • Step #5. Finish the flower crown with a little bit of floral tape
    That’s it! You now have a beautiful flower crown that you can tuck into your hair or just let it fall on your shoulders. It will last as long as you keep it in water.
