Summer is right around the corner! That means music festivals, after church brunches, and beach outings. With all these activities to indulge in, you have to look cute! What better way than with a flower crown? It can easily be paired with a basic dress or t-shirt and jeans; taking your outfit from a 4.5 to a 10.
Sure, you can buy flower crowns from the store, but wouldn’t it be satisfying to create your own? They take a little effort, but I promise if you can make one, you can make twenty!
If you’re convinced, keep reading to learn how to make a flower crown.
Materials & Equipment
For this DIY project, you will need a bouquet of faux flowers, cord or ribbon, one sheet of felt, beads (optional), a hot glue gun, and scissors.
Begin by removing the flowers from the stem.
Remove the outermost green plastic petal from the back of one flower. Squeeze an ample amount of hot glue onto the back and reattach the plastic petal. Cut the tip from the flower. Repeat this step with the remaining flowers. This step may seem a bit odd, but it will insure that the flower stays intact over time.
Cut ovals from the felt. They should be large enough to cover the backs of the flowers. Create an oval for each flower.
Cut enough cord to wrap around your head and tie a bow. I cut one yard to be on the safe side. Fold the cord in half and mark the spot. If you have an odd number of flowers, you will place the first flower directly in the middle. If you have an even number of flowers, you will place flowers on each side of the middle mark. This will keep your crown centered.
Squeeze a large glob of hot glue onto the back of one flower and place the cord in the hot glue. While the glue is still hot, firmly place the felt oval on top of it. Add more glue to the edges of the oval to secure it to the flower.
Continue this step with the remaining flowers.
Tie a knot on each end of the cord. To embellish the cord slide beads onto it before tying the knot.
You’re summer ready! Make more crowns and give one to a friend.
