Music party season is in full swing, and flower crowns make the wonderful hair accessory for a hippie look. Create this vibrant flower crown with ribbon ties, so you’ll be the standout “flower child” at music festival such as Coachella.
• Heavy-duty scissors
• Green floral tape
• 26-gauge green floral wire
• Faux flowers
• 2 to 3 styles of assorted ribbons
By your heavy-duty scissors, cut both flower from its main stem, leaving approximately 2 1/2 inches of stem attach to the flower.
To stay your workplace neat, type your flowers into bunches by type and color. This will create it easier to choose flowers for placement on your crown.
Compute around the top of your head to verify how much wire to cut off to make the base of the flower crown. Leave a few inches in case you require the extra wire later. Cut the wire and form it in the shape of a circle to go around your head.
Take a flower and bend the stem into a curve to follow the curve of the green wire. Start to wrap the green wire around the stem. Stay adding flowers to the green wire, wrapping the wire around the stems as you go. Wrapping the wire around the stems causes the wire base to become shorter, allowing room to insert ribbon ties at the end.
Previously you have finished wrapping your flowers into the green wire, cut another piece of green wire and wrap it around the entire crown for support.
When you have completed reinforcing the crown, wrap the green floral tape once around the exposed wire and flower stems to cover them.
Apply three ribbon styles to complement the colors of the flowers in the crown, if preferred. When choosing ribbons for your crown, select at least one ribbon style that is 1 1 1/2- to 2 1/2-inches wide.
After cutting 2 pieces of just about 1 foot of each ribbon style — one for every side of the floral crown — create a stack of one set of ribbons. Then, place the stack of ribbons on one side of the end of the flower crown, and cut one more piece of green wire to wrap approximately the ribbons and hold in place on the crown. Do again for the other side.
