Are you wanting to channel your inner hippie self for festival season and learn how to make floral crowns? Here are 4 ways to rock floral crowns and #SavorSummer with Martha Stewart. We had so much fun making ours with real flowers. Follow these guidelines as a starting point. The beauty is that each one is unique and different. We actually named our crowns: Boho chic, Soft and Romantic, Wild for Color and a Sweet Surprise. We’ve listed the types of flowers we used for each one to give you some ideas for your own. We hope these will inspire you to make your own and post on Instagram. There are prizes to win and you may just be featured on Martha Stewart! Details below.
DIY : 4 Ways To Make Floral Crowns with Martha Stewart
How to Make Floral Crowns : Materials and Tools
To make floral crowns yourself, all you need are the following materials.
- oasis floral tape
- covered floral wire
- floral shears and wire cutters
- flowers and greenery of choice
- Wrap the covered floral wire around your head to get the right circumference. Cut and attach the ends to make a ring out of the wire. Double it for extra strength.
Cut your pieces of greenery and flowers to desired lengths. Place a flower on top of the wire ring and wrap together with floral tape. Add a second flower on top of the first flower stem, and wrap with floral tape. Repeat until your ring is full of blooms.
- The floral wire is nice to use if you don’t want to fill your crown with flowers all the way around.
4 Ways to Rock that Floral Crown
1. Boho Chic – mainly greens: tree fern, myrtle and broom corn
2. Wild for Color – zinnias, sunflowers, myrtle and tree fern
3. Soft and Romantic – green tea roses, pink alstromaria, myrtle, tree fern, wax flower
4. A Sweet Surprise – the white hydrangea and purple one : lime light hydrangea, broom corn
