Make Your Own Floral Crown For Music Festival Style
First you will need a flower arrangement (real or fake) of your choice. If you are using fake flowers, I find that silk ones work best as they look the most realistic. You will also need a headband to wrap the flowers around, wire to attach them, and a hot glue gun to tidy up the floral crown for a finishing look.
The first step is to cut off a flower, leaving about 5 centimeters of stem. This is necessary when attaching the flower to to the headband. Next you will cut off a piece of wire, about 6 inches long. Begin to wrap the wire around the stem of the flower, leaving a bit of slack. Then you will wrap the extra piece of wire around headband, with the stem on the bottom side of the band. Repeat until you have as many flowers as you'd like on the headband.
There may be visible wire when you wear the headband. If so, glue down petals around the showing wire in order to hide them.
