How to Choose Your Flowers

How To Make A Flower Crown | The Ultimate Guide

To more effectively bring out the beauty of your design you will need to know what variation of flowers you will need. Some types of flowers come in many colors, bi-color, and some that only come in one color.

It is essential to keep this in mind to know the best flowers for your arrangement. Every flower is unique. The Dahlia flower does not resemble the Rose.

However, putting some different types of flowers together makes a powerful, beautiful statement in your design. You can read more about the different sorts of flowers you can use here.

When choosing your greenery, keep in mind the shape of the foliage and its size. Be careful to take time to choose the right greenery.

Tools and Supplies

How To Make A Flower Crown | The Ultimate Guide

Before we start making the flower crown you have envisioned, we should discuss the tools and supplies you will need. 

  • Two aluminum wires with a thickness of about 1/8 inches. Make sure the wire is approximately 20-40 inches long. This wire forms the circle placed on the head of the person you intend to make it for. I used this wire.

  • Flowers to adorn the flower crown width to increase its focal appeal and match your vision. You can use real fresh flowers, permanent botanical flowers, wax flowers, dried or wood flowers. 
  • Greenery to place on your flower crown if you want to give it a look that it is cascading.

  • Floral Tape to tape the flowers you will be using in your crown. I used this floral tape.
  • Wire Cutters. This is used to cut the wire you need to put on the head of the person you are making it for. I used this wire cutter.
  • String. This is used to assist you in measuring the head of the person wearing your flower crown so that it will fit properly. Remember to leave 2 to 3 inches of extra space for adjustment. I used this string.

    After you have obtained what you need for your flower crown, then you can begin creating your own flower crown.

    • Take a piece of string and measure the head of the person who will wear the flower crown.
    • Cut your flowers and greenery two to three inches from the stem. This is estimated to be around the ideal size so they can be laced upon your crown.

             Be sure to remove any parts of your flower and greenery you do not want present in your flower crown. This can include dry leaves, stems, and pedals.

    • Take your wire or other material and form it into a circle that overlaps itself two to four times. Be sure to measure your flower girl’s head to make sure the flower crown you are making is the right size.

             You can overlap it more to give it a thicker look. Be sure to leave a 1/2 inch of wire when forming the circle with the wire. Twist the end together to attach them.

             Use floral corsage tape to complete this step by taping the ends of the flower crown’s wire together. The floral tape has a unique way of keeping all the flowers together.

             This is because it has a special adhesive. When the floral tape is stretched, it releases the adhesive wax that makes it stick to itself so you can wrap the tape around the stems.

            Remember to roll your tape around your crown two to three times to ensure it stays in place.

    • For more stability over the design form, you can use floral tape to more efficiently attach the ends of your flowers to the wire of the crown.

            Start placing flowers at the point where you joined the two ends of the wire and make sure they are facing towards the loop. When you reach the end of your wire, fit the last flower as close to the end as possible.

            Be sure to place the florist tape near the top of the stem.

            You can tape one flower at a time to your crown, or you can choose to tape several flowers at once—tape multiple flowers together to more effectively keep your flower crown in place and use your time smartly.

            Remember to keep your crown lightweight so take time when preparing your flowers and greenery. 

    Tip: Make sure that when you start attaching flowers that they are facing outwards, away from the joined ends.

      • To help add to the thickness of the design, you can add parts of greenery together, then use florist tape to tape them to the end of the flower you just placed on the wire of the crown.

              If you believe this will enhance the look, you can also cool glue the accessories to your crown, such as butterflies. If you are a ribbon lover, don’t be afraid to add it to your design.

      • Continue this process, placing flowers and greenery to your crown until you are satisfied with the look. For better results, try to leave minimal parts of the wire exposed if you use designer wire.

              Be sure to use lots of smaller flowers to fill in the space where you believe your design will look better. Remember that you can also cut mini branches to add to your design’s look.

      How To Make A Flower Crown | The Ultimate Guide

      Now that we are ready to arrange the flower crown for your flower girl let us discuss how to arrange your flowers and greenery to improve your design look.

      Below is the most popular way to make the flower girl crown. I will give you a different idea of the mechanic and design for another crown

      1. Use a headband already covered with fabric
      2. Make sure you choose the correct size
      3. Cutting the flowers
      4. How to add the flowers to the headband
      5. Finishing the crown

      This crown is very easy and fast to make because you already have the headband ready to glue the flowers on. You will not use wire or floral tape. This design will save you a lot of time.

      The flowers we will be using are seeded eucalyptus and spray roses. Cut the seed of the eucalyptus florets very short at half an inch. Cut about 15 to 20 spray roses. Be sure to cut all the stems off. 

      Now let’s glue the spray roses on the headband. I use beacon fabric-tac glue because it provides a permanent bounding. Start from the center as the higher point of the crown. Glue the largest spray roses first to achieve the center form of the crown.

      Don’t glue the sweetheart roses too close, because later we’ll be adding the seeded eucalyptus to the spaces between the roses.

      Now that we finished gluing all the spray roses, the next step is to continue with the eucalyptus seeds. After cutting the stem as short as possible, add a drop or two of glue on the stems and place it onto the empty areas.

      Repeat this step until the whole crown is covered. The following step is to put the crown on the flower girl’s head. If the flower girl is not available at this time, then you can use a mannequin head.

      See if any of the fabric from the headband is visible from the front and back and cover it with seeded eucalyptus. Leave a few spray roses if needed to have a clean finish product.

      Conclusion

      Remember to keep it hydrated now that your flower crown is perfectly made the way you envisioned. Use a plastic container and put a double layer of paper towel and spray water onto the paper towel.

      If you need an extra cushion for your flowers, add more wet paper towels to the bottom of the plastic container.

      Now place the crown in it and place a layer or two of paper towel already wet on top of the crown, making sure it is not heavy. Put the lid on and keep it in the refrigerator to assist in prolonging its lifetime.

      Wrapping it up, now that you are confident in making your flower crown, you can experiment with the different combinations of designs you have envisioned.

      This instructional information will help you prepare your flower crown and put it together for your flower girl or another member of your event. Take your time and prepare thoroughly.

      If you plan to make flower crowns for adults, make sure to use larger flowers to balance their size. You can also make oversize crowns. It all depends on your client’s request.

      Don’t be afraid to show your style and personality when making your own. Always remember to keep on practicing so you might stumble upon creating a masterpiece.
