// Floral Clippers or Scissors

Tutorial – Step by Step Instructions

1 // Start your flower crown by making a skeleton of olive twigs and attach them with floral tape. Measure your head as you go – you want the crown the feel somewhat loose, since you’ll fill in by adding the flowers.

2 // Once your ‘skeleton’ is ready, choose your flowers. Cut about 5″ of wire and stick it through the flower bud. Fold it along the stem and wrap it with floral tape. This gives your flower stability and makes attaching it much easier.

3 // Attach the first flower to the greenery with floral tape. Cluster the flowers slightly on the side to make the prettiest, most natural impact. You can add wired flowers, clusters of berries and additional leaves or greenery.

It’s a pretty simple approach to flower crowns and looks oh so gorgeous! If you’re looking for a bit more flowers, you can go all the way around or add small clusters along the greenery. Play with it and see how it comes together!
