This spring weather has me feeling all the feels! Give me a little warm weather and its not long until I start collecting flowers, drinking sweet tea, and wishing I was floating on a boat somewhere. Since nothing says spring to me more than flower crowns, I decided to be adventurous and attempt to make my own faux flower crowns! I seriously wish flower crowns were like hats and you could just wear them all the time without people looking at you sideways. Any one else want to start this trend with me and wear flower crowns on the daily? 😉
When I went to the craft store to pick up a few things for Savannah’s new room, all of a sudden I was like, “You know what? These flowers would look awesome around my head!” So, project flower crowns began. I have no idea if this is the “right way” to make a flower crown but it worked out so well for me I thought I would share it with you guys!
I’m a crafty person for sure, but to a certain extent. And by that I mean, the hot glue gun is my best friend. I use it for way too many things that I probably shouldn’t, but hey, it never fails me and its so much easier than some of the other options…like sewing…bleh. So lets get down to the nitty gritty and make some flower crowns!
Unwind the rope and shape it around your head so that it hangs where you want it. Then leave enough to tie it in the back and use some wire cutters to cut the appropriate length.
Wire Cut the flowers and greenery that you want to use and kind of lay it around the crown to see what looks good next to each other and if you need more or less of anything.
I started by glueing the greenery on the backside of the crown close to where I tied it together, maybe a couple inches away from the actual tie. Making sure both sides of the crown were in a similar greenery and flower pattern was important to me so I knew it would look good from both sides. I used primarily eucalyptus leaves and some baby rose looking flowers.
As most of you probably know, hot glue takes only a few minutes to set so you really don’t need to wait long until its ready to wear! Another reason why I love the hot glue gun, because I am probably the most impatient person ever. This whole process only took me about 20 minutes from start to finish! That’s my kind of project. I made two flower crowns out of it that will last forever since they’re artificial flowers! It’s also a fun project you can try and include the kids on. I let Savannah help pick out the flowers, etc, and she totally loved it and pranced around in her flower crown for hours.
So, if you want a flower crown for an event, taking family pictures, etc, I would highly recommend trying to make them yourself! It’s fun and you can make them look any way you want! Good luck, have fun with it, and let me know if you try it!
