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:
- 20 Gauge wires and 26 gauge wires (not in the photo above)
- 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?
