Step 1: Wrapping the Wire with Florist Tape
To begin creating your flower crown, take each piece of wire and tightly wrap florist tape around one end of each wire. The tape should be wrapped to ensure it is secure and won't loose during crown-making. You can wrap the tape to approximately 10 cm on each wire, but the length can be adjusted based on personal preference.
This step aims to add and provide a sturdy base for your flower crown. The wire will help the crown keep its shape and hold the flowers in place. The florist tape provides an adhesive surface to hold the flowers and covers the wire to give it a clean and polished look.
Traping the tape tightly around the wire is essential to ensure it won't unravel as you add flowers and greenery. The tape should be wrapped smoothly and evenly, with no bumps or gaps that could detract from the crown's overall appearance.
Once you've completed this step, you'll have a sturdy base to build your beautiful flower crown.
Step 2: Forming the Loops of Your Headband
After wrapping each wire with florist tape, it's time to form a loop at the end of each wire. To do this, you must bend the end wrapped with florist tape in half, creating a loop that will serve as the foundation for your flower crown.
The loop should be formed by folding the wire end in half and ensuring that both sides are aligned correctly. You can gently bend the wire to form a neat, secure loop with your fingers or pliers. The loop size can be adjusted based on personal preference, but ensuring that both loops are the same size for a balanced and symmetrical crown is essential.
Forming the loops is crucial because it provides a structure for the crown and helps to hold the flowers and greenery in place. The loops should be positioned at the base of the crown, and the remaining wire should be pointing upwards to make it easier to add flowers and greenery.
Once you have formed the loops, you can move on to the next step, securing the loops with florist tape. With these simple steps, you are well on your way to creating a stunning flower crown that will make you feel like a true flower queen.
Step 3: Securing the Loops of Your Headband
Once you have formed the loops at the end of each wire, it's time to secure them tightly using florist tape. The florist tape should be wrapped around the loop several times to ensure it is secure and won't lose during crown-making.
It's essential to ensure that you have secured the loop tightly on both ends of each wire. This is because the loops serve as the foundation for the crown and need to be secure to hold the flowers and greenery in place. If the loops are not secured properly, the crown may not hold its shape or may fall apart while you're wearing it.
The florist tape provides an adhesive surface to hold the flowers and covers the wire to give it a clean and polished look. The tape should be wrapped smoothly and evenly, with no bumps or gaps that could detract from the crown's overall appearance. Cover and wrap the entire loop tightly when wrapping the florist tape.
A well-made flower crown is not only beautiful but also durable and long-lasting. Taking time with this step is crucial to ensure the loops are securely fastened. With these simple steps, you are on your way to creating a stunning flower crown that will make you feel like a true flower queen.
Step 4: Decorating with Greenery
Now that you've created a sturdy base for your flower crown, it's time to start decorating with greenery. Start by selecting your greenery- anything from Viburnum, Pennygum, Ivy, or any other small and dainty-leaved plant.
To attach the greenery, use florist tape to tightly wrap the plant stem around the wire. Start at one end and work your way down, leaving the loops exposed on either end. This creates a cohesive look and helps to keep the greenery securely in place.
Taking time with this step is essential to ensure the greenery is attached securely and evenly. Be sure to distribute the greenery evenly around the crown to create a balanced look. You can adjust the amount of greenery based on personal preference, but ensuring it does not overwhelm the flowers is essential.
Decorating with greenery is important in creating a beautiful and cohesive flower crown. It provides a foundation for the flowers and adds a touch of elegance and natural beauty to the overall look. Once you've completed this step, you can move on to the next step and add flowers to your crown.
Step 5: Adding Flowers
Now that you've added your greenery, it's time to add flowers to your crown. This is where you can get creative and choose the flowers you love the most. For this crown, we used Roses, Asters, Status, Viburnum, Lace flowers, and Heather, but you can use any flowers you like.
When adding the flowers, start by selecting the flower of your choice and using florist tape to wrap the stem around the wire tightly. Start at one end and work your way down, leaving the loops exposed on either end. Try pairing a rose with some lace or heather to create a fuller look.
It's essential to take time with this step to ensure the flowers are attached securely and evenly. Be sure to distribute the flowers evenly around the crown to create a balanced look. You can adjust the number of flowers based on personal preference, but it's essential to ensure that the flowers do not overwhelm the greenery.
As you add more flowers, use the florist tape to play with colour combinations and height. Make sure the florist tape is wrapped tightly and cut off as you finish with each flower. This helps to keep the flowers securely in place and gives the crown a polished look.
Adding flowers is crucial in creating a beautiful and unique crown. It allows you to express your creativity and personal style while creating a stunning accessory that will make you feel like a true flower queen. Once you've completed this step, you're ready to move on to the next step and continue filling up your crown with flowers.
Step 6: Keep adding more and more flowers down the wire until you find your flower crown is filling up nicely.
Step 7: If the hair on your crown gets fuller, it may become challenging to wrap the florist tape around it. In that case, use a glue gun to attach flowers to match the wire in hard-to-reach hair and areas.
Step 8: When most of your chosen flowers are attached, use the glue gun to fill in the gaps. Break the stems off the flowers and attach the remaining section with a blob of glue.
Step 9: Measure a piece of ribbon to roughly 30 cm and thread it through each loop. This will make your crown adjustable and allow you to tie it in a bow at the back. The crown should sit comfortably on your head.
