Flowers are beautiful, but they also take time and effort to create. If you want to add some flair to your outfit or even add a floral theme to your party, why not try making your own floral crown?
There are plenty of tutorials out there showing you how to make a crown from scratch, but it takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it. The good thing is that once you master the technique, you can easily replicate the look at home.
Making a crown is easier than you might think. All you need is a basic knowledge of flowers, a glue gun, scissors, and patience. Once you’ve got the basics down, you can customize your crown to match your style. So, just read on to discover how you can make your very own flower crown!
How To Make A Flower Crown: Step-by-Step Instructions
Step 1: Gather Materials
You’ll need a few things before you start this project. First, you’ll need fresh flowers that have been cleaned thoroughly. You may use any type of flower, as long as they are healthy, fresh, and in good condition.
Alternatively, you could even use artificial flowers if you want your flower crown to last longer. You’ll also need a glue gun, scissors (for trimming), and wire cutters.
Step 2: Cut The Crown To Size
After you have all the materials that you need and you’re ready to begin making your flower crown, you should proceed to cut the flower crown so that it fits your head.
To do this, simply take the cardboard (or whatever you are going to be using) and wrap it around your head, and then use scissors to cut it.
Step 2: Choose Your Flower
Once you know what kind of flower you’d like to use for your crown, you will need to choose which one. There are so many different types of flowers available, so it would be best if you go with something easy to find.
For example, roses are often one of the most popular types of flower because they’re very common and easy to find.
If you don’t want to spend much money on flowers, you could always buy them at a local grocery store. They usually sell small bunches of mixed flowers for about $4.99.
Just like we have already mentioned in the previous step, if you do not want to use fresh flowers to decorate your crown, you could instead opt to use artificial, fake flowers in place of real flowers.
Step 3: Prepare The Wire Cutters
Before you begin cutting the stems off the flowers, you should prepare the wire cutters. To do this, simply heat up the metal blade of the cutter using the glue gun. This will ensure that the blades stay sharp. Make sure that you are using your wire cutters safely in order to prevent any injuries.
Step 4: Trim The Stems
Now that the stems are trimmed, you can proceed with removing the petals. Start by holding the stem firmly between your thumb and index finger. Then, gently pull the petal away from the stem. Repeat this process until all the petals are removed.
Step 5: Glue The Petals Together
Now that all the petals are attached together, you’ll need to apply glue to each individual petal. Hold the petals together while applying the hot glue. It’s important to keep the petals flat against one another when gluing them together.
Step 6: Add The Leaves
After you finish gluing the petals together, you’ll need a leaf to complete your crown. Use the wire cutters to remove the leaves from the branches of the plant.
As a side note, you don’t necessarily need to attach leaves to your flower crown if you do not wish to, although many people find that it adds the perfect finishing touches and helps to make the flower look as natural as possible. Adding leaves will also help to hide the base of the crown.
Step 7: Attach The Crown To Your Head
Once you have finished making your flower crown and you’re ready to wear it, you can then go ahead and put the crown on your head!
For the most part, all you will need to do is simply place the flower crown on your head, however, if you would like to prevent it from falling off – then you could also fasten your flower crown down with some hair pins or clips.
As a side note, if you would like to pin your crown down to your head, then you should aim to place the clips in discreet spots so that you cannot see them.
What Can A Flower Crown Be Used For?
A flower crown can be worn during special occasions such as weddings or graduations. If you’re looking to add some flair to an event, then this is definitely the way to go.
The beauty of making your own crown is whatever design you want. You can even change the colors of the flowers that you use in order to suit your mood!
Making flower crowns is also one of the best activities for sleepovers, and is sure to keep your children entertained while also allowing them to tap into their creative sides! The possibilities are endless when it comes to wearing a flower crown.
To sum up, everything that we have talked you through above, a flower crown is a simple way to elevate any outfit with a feminine and floral touch – which makes it perfect for slumber parties, weddings, and even birthday parties!
In order to make your flower crown, so long as you make sure that you have all of the materials that you will need as well as all of the flowers that you would like to decorate the crown – you’ll be a pro at making flower crowns at no time at all. Thanks for reading!
