Today's post is awesome because it was a request :)
Monica made a suggestion for a flower crown, and I thought it would be something that I would be able to do. Stay tuned ^^~
You will need:
- Garden wire
- A material that wont clash with your flower colors
- Flowers with individual "stems"
- 1/4" ribbon in a color that matches your theme
- Hot glue
When I said that you will need flowers with individual stems, this is what I meant. Each flower is separate.
Use wire cutters to cut a piece of the garden wire to your desired length. Just a tip: Smaller crowns often look a bit cuter :)
Then, cut a strip of fabric (1"-2" wide). You can use one looong strip or several strips of medium lengths. It doesn't really matter...I promise ^^
Bend your wire into a relatively circular shape.
Wrap your material around the wire, and use a bit of hot glue every few wraps.
Wrap the stem of a single flower around the band of the crown.
Repeat this step while starting a pattern that will be maintained throughout the headband.
Lastly, tightly wrap your ribbon around the "stems" of the flowers, using hot glue to secure.
Now you're done ^^ Enjoy your crown~
