Check out this flower child and Mother Earth fabulousness. I am digging some big-ass colorful flowers for a spring wedding headpiece. How gorgeous would this look with something like this vintage-inspired dress or this bohemian sleeved dress?

If you want to craft your own, you'll need a few things: silk flowers, wire cutters/pliers, heavy floral wire, thin floral wire to attach the flowers, and floral tape or ribbon.

The trick is to make the heavy floral wire crown part a little bigger than you think you need due to the ends of the flowers taking up space. Then it's a matter of attaching your chosen flowers to the base with the thin wire and smoothing all the edges with tape, if needed. Keep all those poke-y bits from digging into your head.

You can also use much smaller flowers if you're looking for something more subtle. But in this case, my motto is "more is more, bitches." Speaking of more, here are more detailed steps:

BONUS FALL HAIR CROWN:
HalloweenParty_07-017This was a flower crown I made for Halloween with a really similar process (plus a bunch of other floral doo-dads). This is more autumn-like or maybe even summer, if you're going for that. And don't think I wouldn't wear those point-y ears and crazy eyelahes to my wedding, too. I'm ALL IN.

We've got a whole tag archive of flowers in hair, so go peek for more inspiration. Ooh, and here is some colored hair and flower combination fun, too!
