How to Make a Flower Crown

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!

How to Make a Flower Crown – What You’ll Need

  • Floral Wire
  • Floral Tape
  • Fresh Filler Flowers

First things First – How to Use Floral Tape

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. Jump to 40 seconds in in THIS VIDEO to see this in action.

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

Great filler flowers for making a flower crown:

  • baby’s breath
  • waxflower
  • thrypoptomeme
  • limonium (that’s what I’m using here)
  • lavender
  1. Cut a long piece of wire – should be about 2″ less than the distance needed to fit around your head
  2. Using your floral tape, wrap tape around 2″ on both ends of your wire.
  3. Create a small loop on both ends of your flower crown – your ribbons will be threaded through these loops at the end. (shown above)
  4. Cut small pieces of your fill flower (approx. 3″ in length) and remove any foliage or flowers at the bottom 1″ of the stems.
  5. Start at one end of your crown and attach your first piece of filler to your flower crown using floral tape. Do not rip the tape afterwards. Place your next piece of fill flower on your wire form so that the flower covers the tape that attached the previous piece. Secure with the tape. Again, do not rip the tape but keep it attached to secure the next piece. Attach the next piece so that it covers the tape from the previous piece and so on. All flowers should be placed going in the same direction and with the majority of the flower facing outward. Feel free to use small clusters of flowers rather than a single stem if you want your crown to be a bit more full.
  6. Cover your entire wire crown with your fill flower.
  7. Thread a ribbon through both loops and use the ribbon to adjust, tighten, and tie the crown on your head. Enjoy wearing your custom flower crown around!
