supplies needed to make a floral crown

Supplies:

Flower wire 18 – 20 gauge
Floral tape
Wire cutters
Faux flowers in a variety of colors and sizes

Make it:

fitting the wire to your head

Wrap the thin wire around your head to get the size so it fits comfortably; remember you will be adding flowers to it so don’t make it too tight to start. If you have a measuring tape, you can simply measure your head and leave a little for overlapping the wire.

measuring your head with a tape measure

Once you know the length typically 18-22 inches, wrap the wire several times around so you have 5 or more layers of wire; this makes the crown sturdier when you are adding the flowers. Or start by using a heavier gauge wire for the base.

Wrapping the wire strands together

Be sure to wrap the ends by covering them with floral tape so the wire doesn’t poke your head. You can also wrap the entire hoop with floral tape to create a smooth base.

Securing the ends of the wire head piece

Decide on the color flowers and theme you want.  You can use real flowers, but you will have to store the wreath in the refrigerator with water-soaked paper towels after you are finished.  This demo features faux flowers so you can save your floral crown and wear it any time you want.

Using your wire cutters, cut each flower leaving about a 2-inch stem.

cutting the flowers the stems

Lay the flower stem on the wire hoop and wrap the stem to the wire using your floral tape. Wrap it securing around the stem several times. Lay the next flower close to the previous flower and wrap the stem with floral tape. I found that I got the best results when I stacked the flowers close together when adding them to the headpiece.

If you see areas that look empty, add more flowers to the headpiece until it’s completely full. In this case, more is more and less is a bore. You can also add more greenery at this stage too.
