A flower crown tutorial

Coucou ! C'est Aurélie ! J'ai fait quelque chose qui est parfaite pour le printemps...

A flower crown! I decided to share this tutorial in case you would like to make your own.
Here's what you need:
-faux flowers
-floral wire
-floral tape
-ribbon

First, cut three pieces of floral wire. Make sure that each piece is a little bigger than the circumference of your head. You will need to either twist or braid the pieces of wire together. Using three pieces, I found, makes the crown more stable. 


Now, here is why it is important to make sure the wire is long enough. You will cut the flowers and twist the wire around their stems.

Next, you want to conceal the twisted wire by wrapping it with the floral tape.

So, here is the almost-completed flower crown. 

Now, make sure that it fits around your head.

Tie ribbon to each end for the finishing touch, and then tie them into a bow.

Here's the completed flower crown!

I chose pink flowers since pink is my favorite color, but the color combinations are endless! If you decide to make a flower crown of your own, please send me a link. I'd love to see it!

Bisous,
Aurélie
