I love flower crowns. Flowers in my hair is a sure way to make me feel pretty and put a smile on my face. So lets make some flower crowns! Theyre super easy! I made mine while humming the song If youre going to San Fransisco.

Supplies you will need:
Lots of flowers. I used silk. I find that getting mostly big flowers works the best.
Green wire. Theyll have it in the floral arranging section at your craft store.
Green floral tape. Also at your craft store.
Wire cutters.
Glue gun (optional)

Step one: Start by making a circle the size of your head with the wire. You can double or triple up to make it sturdier.

Step two: Use your wire cutters to clip the flowers so that they have about an inch of stem near the blossom.

Step three: Attach your flowers to the wire one by one, working backwards so each new blossom is covering the stem of the one before it. Youll want to wrap the tape around each stem several times to make sure its secure.

Optional: Use a glue gun on any loose areas. I also glued down some of the tape, since its not the stickiest!

Not optional: Wear your flower crown and never stop smiling.

I made this flower crown for a very exciting photo shoot my friend will be doing. I cant wait to share those photos when theyre up!
