Easter is right around the corner and we are doing a few last minute preparations. A good cleaning of the house, baking of treats, gathering goodies for the baskets and, of course, laying out the Easter outfits. The season of spring calls for soft colors, pastels and lots of flowers so I decided to add this element of nature into our Easter style.
Follow the simple steps below to make your own flower crown for Easter or any occasion!
You will Need:
faux flowers or fresh (I used nice faux flowers for this crown)
green florist tape
green or natural florist wire
scissors or shears
STEP 1: Gather your supplies! Cut flowers from the stems, leaving about an inch or so to work with.
STEP 2: Take your floral wire and make a circle shaping it to fit your head. I used two wires. Wrap the extra wire around to make a strong circle base.
STEP 3: Begin to arrange your flowers. Use the green florist tape to secure the flowers in place. You can either set out the flowers how you would like them arranged or just work as you go.
STEP 4: Continue taping and wrapping the flowers in place. Get creative and remember, there is no wrong way to arrange the flowers.
STEP 6: Once you are happy with your crown double check that all the flowers are securely taped in place and then you’re done! This delicate flower crown also makes a cute decoration to hang or place on a bed post. Happy wearing!
