Make the Wire Crown

To begin a DIY flower crown, first form the crown structure using the wrapped floral wire. Twist two pieces of wire together at intervals to create a scalloped pattern. Add additional wire pieces as needed, tightly twisting the ends into the design. Once you’ve created a length of scalloped twisted wire that is long enough to make a crown, twist the two ends of the crown together to create a circlet.

Attach Artificial Flowers

Next, assemble a variety of artificial flowers, both small and medium. Cut off an assortment of small and medium floral leaves from their stems, to include in the floral crown design. Finally, choose a handful of floral sprays with tiny flowers, to add interest to the flower crown design.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the artificial flowers along the crown. Alternate between medium and small flowers. Glue on flowers to reinforce and hide sections of the crown where you can see overlapping wire ends.

Finally, detail the crown by gluing on miniature leaves interspersed among the flowers. Cut up the floral sprays and glue on segments of tiny flowers tucked beside the small and medium blooms. Add ribbon streamers to the back of the flower crown as a whimsical touch.

You can design a DIY flower crown using any style of flowers you’d like!

How to Make a Flower Girl Bouquet

You can also easily create a miniature flower bouquet using a variety of inexpensive craft materials. You will need:

  • artificial flowers with stems of the same length
  • floral tape
  • ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • wire cutter
  • ribbon

Assemble the flowers into a bouquet, trimming the stems to an even length. I used several guidelines to arrange the flowers. First, I put the tallest flowers near the center of the bouquet. Next, I evenly mixed large and small flowers to create an even floral design. Finally, I wrapped the artificial flower stems with floral tape to keep the bouquet together.

Once you’ve arranged the artificial flowers, tightly wrap the stems together with floral tape. Glue down the end of the floral tape with hot glue.

As an extra touch, wrap the stem of your bouquet with ribbon. Secure the ends of the ribbon firmly in place with hot glue.

I finished these flower girl bouquets by tying on several extra pieces of ribbon and a decorative bead.
