DIY: Flower Crown

I don't know if it's the warmer temperature or that Coachella is this weekend, but it's bringing the flower child in me out.  A flower crown is the ultimate bohemian accessory and it's so simple to make and cost around $4.  I fashion this one in 5 minutes!



First, you need to gather your supplies:
Flowers/ Scissors/ Strings (you may use twisties, I had some leftover threads, so that was what I used). Floral tape would be great, but if you just want to use what you have around the house, thread works just fine.

Second, I arrange the flowers in ascending order and securing the flowers every couple of inches.  Remember to bend the stems slightly to make the crown. 


































I try to end my crown with two stems together, that way, securing them together is much easier.  But if you're in situation where your crown ends with two flowers, fear not, what you can do is cut out a stem and tie both flowers onto that stem.



Lastly, I cut up some roses (you can use any flowers) and you just fill in the gaps.







Ta Da!  Your very own flower crown!
