In this post I am going to teach you how to make a flower crown in a light and airy style.
Flower crowns have been a popular floral accessory for a few years now. While I am not the biggest fan of them for weddings, I do love flower crowns for parties – especially bachelorette parties or bridal showers! There really is something so special (and extra!) about wearing a beautiful custom floral piece in your hair. I also love flower crowns for flower girls at a wedding. There is nothing more adorable than a little flower girl in a crown and they are always sooo excited when I hand them over on wedding days.
I often get asked how to make a flower crown by friends looking to do a DIY – usually for a friend of theirs on their birthday or bachelorette. Honestly, making a flower crown is not a difficult task (time consuming, yes, but not difficult with a bit of practice!). In this post I am going to teach you how to make a flower crown using just one type of flower. A fluffy filler style of flower works best for this DIY. I find the end look is simple and sophisticated but still super fun!
Floral tape is a necessary tool when making a flower crown. This tape releases an adhesive to attach to itself as you pull on the tape tightly. It does not feel sticky off the bat. To attach two things together, whether it is 2 wires, wire and flower stems, or 2 flower stems, start at the top. Hold the two items together along with the flower tape. Wrap the tape around the two items pulling the tape tightly as you go. Overlap the tap by about 1/2 to 3/4 of the tape width and keep the tape flat and straight (don’t let it twist). Practice securing two pieces of wire together to get the rotating motion. I like to keep the tape attached to the roll while using it and rip the tape off the roll when I’m at the end of securing whatever it is I’m securing.

This DIY flower crown using just fill flowers could not be more simple. The end result is light, airy, and lovely!
