Flower Crown DIY

Though the weather is rather cool in L.A., it’s finally spring.

Spring reminds me of flowers, sunshine, weddings, and oddly music festivals. During this season I tend to see a lot of flower crowns. I’m not a big fan of exaggerated accessories so I wanted to make one that was a little more sweet and romantic.

I had a short trip to Joann’s, the closest local fabric and craft store in my area, and picked up some flowers. They are rather expensive for paper/plastic flowers but fortunately there was a 50% off sale!

Here’s what I used for this project:

  • Flowers
  • 20 Gauge wires and 26 gauge wires (not in the photo above)
  • Ribbons
  • Scissors and pliers

I cut out a piece of the 20 gauge wires around the size of my head and bent the ends so that when I wear it, it won’t poke/scratch me.

Then, I separated the flowers from the stem it was attached to.

With individual flowers and leaves, I used 26 gauge wires to wrap them along the 20 gauge wire.

I continue wrapping the flowers along the 20 gauge wire until it’s completely covered with flowers and leaves.

With two pieces of ribbon, I attach it to each end with 26 gauge wires. Finally, just tie a bow and it’s completed.

I don’t have any occasion to wear this yet but I’m hoping I get to soon.

Do you own any flower crowns and if so, where do you wear flower crowns to?

  1. This is so cute. I’ve been thinking about buying one for some photos, but now I might try to make it. AND I was surprised to see you have a Joann’s. That’s my local craft store in Indiana 🙂
