I made this flower crown for Piper Jane a few years ago and have found myself wearing it randomly around the apartment when I clean or brush my teeth or lift weights. If you haven’t ever experienced what it’s like to live alone, I recommend you try it. You will soon find that you are a very weird person. Things like lifting weights while wearing a child’s size flower crown are just things you do sometimes. Anyway, this crown is way too small for me. It looks funny when my hair is down, but I thought it might look pretty with the old “grab and pin” up do I sometimes do. If you don’t know what the old grab and pin up do is, you are so missing out! You just grab and pin! Sometimes you do a pony tail first (like I did here), sometimes you curl first, but then you just grab and pin! I’m not kiddin’…works every time.
Anyway, I made this crown with a simple crafting wire, green tape for your silk flowers needs, and silk flowers from Michael’s. I do think it looks like it’s made out of silk flowers, but it’s still pretty. I’ve had a good crush on flower crowns for a long time, and don’t know why I haven’t made one for myself. Little Piper is probably sick of me borrowing the one I made for her anyway. I wouldn’t mind having one of my own that fits my adult sized head properly, and that would allow me to wear my hair down. Also, I wouldn’t mind mastering the REAL flower crown. Silkies are nice, but the scent of real flowers in my hair would make for a very good day. Still inspired by these ones.
PS all this talk about flower crowns has me thinking Halloween costume thoughts. It’s never too soon you know.
