Paige Lowe has been toying with the idea of wearing a flower crown for her upcoming wedding this May (check out her amazing Iceland engagement pics) so the other day she got together with the lovely Rachel of Figgy Bakery to try their hands at whipping a few up. The flowers were purchased from Trader Joe’s, and all of other supplies were found at the dollar store! Such an affordable and easy way to make something beautiful for your big day!
- Floral Tape
- Floral Wire
- Wire cutters
- An assortment of your favorite flowers (they used Mums, Asters, Purple Iris, Yellow Salidago and some greenery)
Step one: Create a circle that fits comfortably around your head, that is accessible to remove and put back on whenever you would like. You can double up on the wire to make for a more sturdy base crown, or use just one; Either works.
Step two: Cut your first bloom and place it on your crown, in the desired location and direction you would like the flowers going. You can switch up the direction of flowers at any point, if you feel. Using roughly 3 inches of floral wire, use to wrap the bloom tightly around the wire crown to keep in place. You can use your hands or pliers to wrap the wire tight.
Step three: Take your floral tape, and wrap it around the bloom to cover the wire.
Step Four: Continue this same process with more blooms, layering around the wire crown until you form a solid crown of gorgeous flowers.
You can completely fill your crown with flowers, or leave 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 open! This is your flower crown, do what you like! Be creative, have fun!
