Did you know that floral crowns are making a comeback? Floral crowns tend to be associated with folk music and hippies from the 60’s, but they are so beautiful and easy to make that they have never really gone out of fashion.
As you can imagine, flowers, bouquets and floral arrangements are essential for weddings and this is where these whimsical floral crowns have gained a firm following. There is nothing quite as beautiful and romantic as a blushing bride wearing a fabulous floral crown to offset her flowing bridal dress.
Floral crowns can be worn to many other events, not just weddings, because they add a touch of carefreeness and light-heartedness to your day.
You can use any type of lower for your floral crown, matching it to your outfit. Most flowers are easy to find, but if you want to use exotic flowers in your floral crown, then the quick solution is to order online. This is because you don’t only get the convenience of not having to leave your house to buy one, but you can also expect that you’ll receive it as fast as you can ever imagine. In fact, in Australia alone, you can receive your fresh flowers delivery in Melbourne or any major city the very same day, as long as you place your order in the morning.
So the supplies you will need to make your own fabulous floral crowns include:
- Flower wire
- Wire cutters
Once you have your supplies ready, here is a step by step guide on how to create your very first floral crown.
1. Gather all of your supplies and your flowers and greenery together in one place. The kitchen bench might be the best place to create your floral crown, because it’s easy to keep it clean.
2. First you need to measure the circumference of your head to make sure that your floral crown sits comfortably and isn’t too small or too large. Add about 10cm to your measurement, cut the wire forming it into a circle, and use the extra 10cm to twist the ends together firmly.
3. Next, wrap the tape around all of the wire a couple of times, making sure that all the wire is covered evenly.
4. Now it is time to trim the flower stems, making sure to leave about 10cm of the stem attached to the flower. Bundle a few of the flowers together and then carefully tape them to make sure that they stay in place.
5. Decide where you want the flowers to sit on your floral crown and then use the tape to attach them evenly to the wire circlet. Once you have attached all of the flowers, you will have your very first floral crown!
Floral crowns are easy to make, quite inexpensive and add a touch of whimsy and fun to your day. You can wear them on dates, to a local dance, picnic or to the beach with friends.
