I’m on a roll. DIY after DIY! Well, making a floral head wreath is part of my 2013 bucket list, and I feel like now is the time to do it in time for my beach getaway (and hopefully Wanderland music festival). There are loads of DIY guides over the Internet, so I didn’t have to do a lot of thinking. LOL. What I love about flower crowns is that wearing it instantly gives you a dainty, enchanted character that only equally confident and stylish girls can pull off. I’m assuming I’m one of them, haha!
Things you need:
- A bunch of plastic flowers
- Floral tape
- Floral wire
First, shape the floral wire around your head, circling it twice for a sturdier crown.
Cover the floral wire with the floral tape entirely.
You’ll notice that it’s a lot more secure and stronger now. Your head is already protected from all the wire ends sticking out.
Pick out the flowers that you want to incorporate in your crown. It’s nice to have a bit of the leaves or ferns, too, for a more natural effect.
Cut the lumpy connecting ends, if any, so it won’t bulge out unglamorously from the crown.
You may arrange the flowers loosely around the wire so you’d initially know how it’ll look like and so you’d save time designing instead of doing it freely one by one.
Start taping the parts on the wire. Begin taping from a centimeter or so down to the end for a secure fit.
Tape the center designs first down to the sides so you won’t have a hard time when parts overlap. You may cover only half of the wire with flowers or you may work all around it. I only did half so it’s not overpowering.
You’re done! Here’s how mine looks like. Not bad for the first try, but I want a smaller and completely bloomed flowers next time, like daisies.
Try it on, wear it loosely with a slightly unkempt or messy hair, and work it like a fairy! Excuse my face and my bad hair. LOL. I can’t wait to wear this with my bikini under the sun! This project is really fun. It’s a must try.
