Happy May! Awhile back I posted a fun DIY on Babiekins Magazine blog on how to make a flower crown. I thought the first of May would be the perfect time to repost that crafty tutorial here on my personal blog.

You will Need:
faux flowers or fresh (I used nice faux flowers for this crown)
green florist tape
green or natural florist wire
scissors or shears
wire cutters

STEP 1: Gather your supplies! Cut flowers from the stems, leaving about an inch or so to work with.

STEP 2: Take your floral wire and make a circle shaping it to fit your head. I used two wires. Wrap the extra wire around to make a strong circle base.

STEP 3: Begin to arrange your flowers. Use the green florist tape to secure the flowers in place. You can either set out the flowers how you would like them arranged or just work as you go.

STEP 4: Continue taping and wrapping the flowers in place. Get creative and remember, there is no wrong way to arrange the flowers.

STEP 6: Once you are happy with your crown double check that all the flowers are securely taped in place and then you’re done! This delicate flower crown also makes a cute decoration to hang or place on a bed post. Happy wearing!
