Items Needed:

Floral wire
Flowers & leaves of your choice, taken off the stem
Dark green or black felt pieces, cut into small circles
Hot glue gun

DIY Instructions

Step 1: Wrap the floral wire around your head, so that it will easily stay on your head, but make sure it’s not too tight, or else it will cause flower-crown-head (like hat head) and/or give you a headache. Wrap the wire around one or two more times so that you have a sturdy base for your crown. Using wire cutters or sharp scissors, cut the wire and wrap the end around a few times (see picture below). This is the base of your crown.

Step 2: Take one of your flowers and hot glue the bottom of the flower directly onto the outside of the wire. On the opposite side of the wire and the flower (i.e., the side your head would touch), hot glue a felt circle so that you cover up the glue and the base of the flower. This will also ensure you don’t cut your head on something sharp or pointy.

Step 3: Repeat this process all the way around the crown. To add more color, glue a few pieces of leaves around the inside of the crown.
