Gosh, i haven't posted anything on tumblr in a long time! Recently flower crowns seem to be the 'in' thing, and just yesterday someone asked me how I make mine. I thought I'd post my tutorial here!
This is the finished look:


Step 1:

Materials needed: floral tape, scissors, floral wire (optional), flowers. A LOT OF FLOWERS.

Step 2:

Gather a bunch of flowers. Mine are fresh and were found on the side of the road. If you think you have enough, then get twice as much as what you've got, because believe me you do not have enough. Keep the flowers in water and preferrably stored in cool place, especially if you plan on waiting a day or two to make the crown.

Step 3:


Step 4:

Take your assorted flowers/weeds and wrap some together with floral tape to make a bundle. Make a lot of these. Try not to make them too thick, or else you'll have trouble putting the bundles all together. Once you wrap your bundle, cut the end. Leave 3" of stems so you can layer them easier.

Step 5:


Step 6:

This is where you begin wrapping your bundle on your base. If you decided not to have a wire base, its ok! Take one bundle and place it just below the other, layering them and creating a more lengthened piece. At this point, you just have to keep layering the sprigs and wrapping. You can already tell here that its starting to curve a little.

Step 7:


Step 8:


Finish:
