Crown yourself queen of spring weddings with this DIY flower crown #Fashion DIY#Floral DIY#boho weddings#flower crown#flowers#headpiece#superficial snack March 21 2013 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by: Kelli Murray Photo used with permission from Kelli Murray 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: Photo used with permission from Kelli Murray Head over to Kelly Murray's blog for more detailed instructions and photos to help you along.

Show/Hide comments [ 8 ] I did something similar but created a grid with floral wire which I attached to the headband. That way, I can weave in real or silk flowers and change up the look whenever I want. Reply I LOVE that idea! Reply Will the floral wire get caught in dreads? :/ Reply Honestly, It can but I'm sure if you wrap the wire it would be ok. Reply Interesting. What would I wrap it with? I would love one of these, but only if it won't get stuck in my hair! Reply wrap it up with floral tape or with ribbon! You can also do a variation of the crown that is adjustable by making loops on each side of the wire and using ribbon to tie it to the right size. Reply Fun craft idea for any occasion! I love the inspiration behind it and the easy DIY steps and photographs. 🙂 Reply What a great idea. I'm really looking forward to having a bash at these ideas. Great inspirational ideas, well illustrated, and even for a clutz like me, achievable. Thanks Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
