From outdoor concerts to summer weddings, there's nothing quite as romantic as a pretty floral crown — and it's actually super simple to make on your own!
Kate Pankoke, the designer behind Elaya Vaughn Bridal and a former "Project Runway All Star" contestant, shows us how to make a DIY flower crown in just three easy steps.
What you'll need:
- Silk flowers and foliage
- Hemp-wrapped wire
- Plain wire
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
What you'll do:
- Measure your head with the hemp-wrapped wire and twist pieces together to create the base. Pro tip! The band should rest comfortably on the back of your head, not wrap around the forehead.
- Lay out the design you like best and mold the stems to fit the curve of the best. And glue! Pro tip! Aim to have a good mix of large and small flowers.
- To ensure the flowers are secure, wrap the entire base with plain wire. Then cover the exposed wire with foliage.
Then, just place on your head and go! It's really that simple.
