Spring is here and what better way to embrace the new season than with a gorgeous flower crown DIY that’s 100% hippy approved. Enjoy! 

Howdy! It’s been a while since I’ve written and I have to say that it feels good to write again. I’ve started wedding planning and let me tell you, it is so fun! However, as some of you may (or may not) know, weddings are expensive and I’m definitely not planning to break the bank. Because I want to save on my wedding, but still have it be truly beautiful and classy (or as my future mother-in-law would say, “Posh!”), I have decided to unleash my inner-creative and do as many wedding decor DIYs as possible. This is going to be one exciting feat, but I look forward to every moment of it!

Yesterday, I actually met up with a florist (which was fun) and she asked me what I liked, my favorite flowers, and any ideas I’d seen on Pinterest. That part was a blast! Then she gave me a ballpark estimate on how much everything I liked would cost. Guess how much it was? Let me just tell you… apparently I have very expensive taste! One of the things I asked for was a flower crown for my flower girl. After she told me the cost of the flower crown, I thought to myself, “Alexa, I bet you can make one of these yourself.” So here I am… writing a blog post on how to make flower crowns. Trust me, friends… I’m educating both you and me!

Alright, as with any proper DIY, we need to talk materials because we all know that right after you read this post, you’re probably going to run to the store and buy all these items so that you can make this flower crown asap! Right? Of course! 😉

So here’s what you’ll need:

Now that you have your list of supplies, you need to measure how big you want your flower crown to be. I’d suggest wrapping the wire around your head just to get an idea of how large or small it needs to be. Remember to leave about a ¼ inch wiggle room while you make your crown.

Now that you have your wire measured, gather the flowers and greenery you’ve chosen for your crown and begin assembling mini-bouquets like the one below.

There’s room for your creativity to flow in this step because you can make your mini-bouquets as dainty or lush as you’d like—it really all depends on what style of DIY flower crown you’re going for. In order to complete this step, you’re going to need to trim your flower stems down. I would make the stem a good index finger’s length.

Now here comes the fun part - taking what you imagined in your head and bringing it to life! Begin assembling your mini-bouquets or individual flower strands together. As fun as this step is, remember it can be a little tedious so be patient. Place the mini-bouquets on the DIY flower crown wire. Wrap the stem with floral tape. Repeat. Slowly but surely your floral headpiece will begin to take shape! You have the option of tying a ribbon at the end or just leaving it as is, which is JUST as beautiful!

For starters, can we just say ooh la la to that pink hair! Oh my goodness! I don’t think I’ve ever seen pink hair done better than this updo here. What I love about this flower crown is that it’s simple with a bit of drama on the side. I love how the navy contrasts so beautifully with this woman’s pink hair. Plus, navy, white, and blush are an absolutely gorgeous color combination!
