D.I.Y Floral Crown.

Hello Lovely people,

So as promised here is the D.I.Y for the floral headband/Crown I wore in my post yesterday.
This is a really simple & quick D.I.Y & I am happy to say this D.Y.I cost me £2,75.
Which is great because the floral crowns in the shops can be expensive & I can never find exactly the colored flowers I want.

So here's how it's done:

Supplies you need:
Fake/fresh flowers, I used fake (£1.75 local garden center)
A braided hairband (£1)
Sharp scissors or wire cutters
Don't forget the most important part, a hot cuppa to refresh you as you work :)

Push/ remove the leaves from around the flower so you can see the stem.

Decide where you want to cut, then using the sharp scissors of the wire cutters snip away.

If using fake flowers remove the plastic from the stem carefully so you are left with just a short bit of wire.
Thread the flower though the braid and wrap the wire around the top of the stem at the bottom of the flower to keep it in place.
Then repeat with all the flowers and there you have it, your very own floral crown.

Please do send me pictures if you decide to make one, I would love to see how yours looks too :)

Ciao for now
Lots of love

  1. This is so cute!! I tried making one of these before on a regular stretchy hairband and the flowers did not stay in nicely and kinda clumped together in some parts. I'll definitely have to try it again with a braided hairband!!

  2. Thank you!!! Make sure you send me a picture!!!
    I'd love to see how it turns out :)
