My friend Ama asked me to demonstrate how to make a flower crown for her blog L’Effrontée. We had a fun evening putting this together for you.
You will need:
1. Floral tape
2. Thin wire
3. Flowers (consider colour combinations and flowers that will happily last without water for a day)
4. Foliage (ivy is great, or whatever you can forage)
Measure the wire around your head. Keep some length to create a hook to secure as below
Wrap the floral tape around the wire
Prepare flowers and foliage – cut to size and work out what you want to go where
Begin to place flowers and foliage two at a time, securing with more floral tape
Then it’s as easy as continuing to place two pieces at a time and keep securing with floral tape. Try to place flowers thickly so the wire isn’t seen. Once finished you can store the flower crown in the fridge to keep it fresh.
And here they are!
