How to make a DIY Flower Crown: Easy flower crown tutorial

Have you ever wondered how to make a flower crown? Flower crowns are the perfect accessory for any season, and if you’re the creative type, they’re fun and really easy to make. Whether it’s for your Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Wedding, or your bridesmaids, our step-by-step guide will show you how to make a DIY flower crown to help you make your fairytale fantasy come true.

Before starting, make sure you have all the materials you will need.

DIY Flower Crown Materials

  • Floral tape – Floral tape is best for wrapping fresh flowers together because it blends easily. You can see it in shades of green, brown, and other natural colors so it’s almost imperceptible.
  • Scissors – A sharp pair of scissors can be used for cutting flowers, wire, and tape.
  • Craft wire – Instead of using pre-cut wire, a roll of craft wire allows you to measure the wire for your crown to the exact size of your head. You will use this to tie the flowers to your crown.
  • Wire – Also known as pliable twine, grapevine wire, or vine wire, this will be used as the base of your crown.
  • Flowers and plants – Cut stems to about 2 to 3 inches to make assembly easy. Try getting a mix of larger statement and smaller filler flowers to vary your textures and designs.

How to Choose Your Flowers

The flowers you use will influence the look and feel of the wreath. For example, large statement flowers will give your crown a bold look, while crowns with smaller flowers are great for a softer, more delicate look. If you’re not a superstar botanist, don’t worry. Here’s a guide to the best flowers for your chosen look:

Bold flowers:

  • Spray Rose
  • Daisy
  • Dahlia
  • Peonies
  • Anemone
  • Carnations

How to Make a DIY Flower Crown

Step 1: Shape the wire

Wrap the wire around your head to find the best fit. Leave half an inch of extra room, then trim the excess wire. Secure the ends together with floral tape.

Tip: If you’re planning to wear your flower crown to a special event, consider your hairstyle. Your crown will likely look different depending on how your hair is styled.

Step 2: Wrap the plants around the base

Using floral tape, attach the stems of your plants to the floral wire. If you want your wreath to focus more on the flowers, skip this step and add more flowers instead.

Step 3: Make mini-flower bunches

Before attaching the flowers to your wreath, start by grouping three blooms together in a group and wrapping their stems together with floral tape. To make sure it’s secure, wrap floral tape from the base of the flower to the bottom of the step. Once you have about eight bunches, you can start attaching them to your crown.

Tip: To create a balanced look, combine your statement flowers with smaller, more delicate flowers.

Step 4: Attach your flower bunches to the wreath

Take your first bunch of flowers and attach the stems to your wreath using floral tape or craft wire. Continue placing more bunches over the stems to create a seamless look.

Tip: make sure the flowers are going in the same direction, facing outwards. If you want to create a focal point, attach some statement bunches of flowers to the front or side of the wreath.

Store your finished crown in the fridge to keep it nice and fresh, and to make it last longer! Spray with water to refresh the blooms when you’re ready to wear them.
