As I mentioned yesterday on “Shifty Shift
,” I’m looking forward to this weekend because it is the Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta, Georgia. So many of my favorite artists are performing: John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Lana del Rey, Lorde, and Bastille to name a few!
All summer long I’ve been seeing an abundance of festival outfits and flower crowns. I decided to follow suit and make my own oversized flower crown for this festival. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the DIY project was and elated with the result.
Gather materials: Various faux flowers ;; twine ;; floral wire ;; floral tape ;; hot glue gun ;; scissors
Bundle up a few pieces of floral wire and wrap together with another piece of wire. Be sure to leave some excess wire at the end.
Form a crown shape to your liking and use the excess wire from one end of the bundle to attach with the other end of the bundle. Wrap excessively with floral tape.
Gather your larger flowers and start wrapping them to the base with more floral wire. I wanted a very sturdy crown so I wrapped each flower multiple times.
Here’s my initial base of just white flowers. It’s a little unsymmetrical, but I don’t mind since flowers have an organic shape.
I found it easiest to attach larger flowers that had longer stem with floral wire and small flowers with hot glue. I also reinforced the larger flowers with hot glue. This crown will survive anything!
I just kept building onto the base with miscellaneous small blooms and leaves.
I just realized that the crown also looks like a petite wreath. Definitely did not think my crown would have a more functional use than being an accessory! Here is a sneak peek of my flower crown styling, keep an eye out for more pictures!
Do let me know if you attempt the crown DIY!
