    DIY Floral Crown

    DIY Floral Crown Tutorial

    I have always loved crafting! I can remember when I was much younger, I would often craft alongside my mom, who was always a big crafter. She once had her own little side business with one of her close friends where they sold stuffed bears, ties, and all other kinds of fun trinkets. I love that my mom always encouraged me to flex my creative muscle when I was younger.

    A few years ago, after my job ended, I knew I had to do something to keep my creative muscle flexing, so I followed in my mom’s footsteps and started my own little crafting business. It was alot of work but I had a blast making one-of-a-kind creations. Once I got pregnant with our third baby, I was just too tired to keep that business going. A few months later, we were packing up to move to Toronto and I decided to pack up that business for the time. 

    My kids have definitely inherited that same crafty gene as they absolutely love anything to do with arts and crafts. We are still at the stage where they need very supervised and assisted craft time, therefore, I find myself doing many stick puppets and and paper crafts rather than what I used to make. A time for everything, right?!

    So I was so excited when my friend told me she was doing a flower-themed party for her daughter! Perfect excuse to get my craft on again! I wanted to make a floral crown for her little girl! I’ve never made one before, but knew it wouldn’t be difficult to figure out! 

    It turned out so well that I wanted to share it with you! Honestly, this craft cost me less than $5 and took less than 30 minutes to make! Now that is the kind of craft I have time for these days! So let’s walk through it!

    DIY Floral Crown Tutorial

    Step 1: Gather materials

    The materials you will need include:
    – Silk flowers
    – Floral Wire
    – Wire Cutters
    – Glue gun & glue sticks
    – Measuring tape

    Step 2: Measure head & cut wire
    Measure the persons head you want to make the crown for. Make sure to add an inch or two to your measurements so that it will sit properly on their head. Then triple that measurement. Cut enough wire, make two loops and then use the excess wire to wrap those two loops together. This will help make the crown more sturdy.

    Step 3: Remove flowers from their stems
    Take all your silk flowers and remove the flower head from the adjoining stems. You will only need the flower heads. Make sure you don’t pull too hard as you don’t want the whole flower to fall apart…but just enough for it to pop off the stem.

    Step. 4: Start layering flowers on the crown
    Pick a starting point and go! I took my biggest flower (the light pink gerbera) and put it off the side, where I wanted it. Then I built the rest of the crown around that. Make sure to really layer your flowers, constantly pulling back the petals beside where you want to glue the next flower and getting it as close as you can. You don’t want any gaps between the flowers. If you find there are some gaps, layer in a few more flowers until you no longer see holes.

    Step 5: Finishing touches
    You may choose to go all the way around the crown or just do the front half, which is what I did for this one. I also added a piece of felt behind the flowers to make sure nothing would poke her head when she was wearing the crown. Remove any of the glue gun strings (those blasted things!) and shape the crown to fit the head (we don’t have perfectly circular heads, so you may need to bend the wire a bit to make sure the fit is just right).

    DIY Floral Crown Tutorial
    Well there you have it! A super easy yet incredibly adorable floral crown! These are so hot right now and seriously, so easy to make! The perfect gift to bring to a baby shower or birthday party! I think I actually want one for myself too! Stay tuned for that look! And I know I’m somewhat biased, but doesn’t my girl just look angelic or what?!

    So pretty! I have made something similar using jute and flowers, but nothing like this. Crazy to think…I already have all the materials used. I need to try this. This would be perfect for the summer or for a spring/summer photo shoot.

    • Reply Christine May 11, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    i keep thinking I should make a floral crown since they’re so popular especially since they really are so simple. sometimes you just need to see someone else do it first to realize how simple it really is.
