My best friends and I got together to do an impromptu shoot using flower crowns made from fresh flowers.

It’s super simple to make and you get a really pretty outcome! Its perfect for a music festival or, even if you just feel like being a forest fairy for the day!

All you need is :

    1) Fresh flowers

    2) A pair of Siccors, (big ones preferably, the stalks and wire were pretty hard to cut!)

    3) Brown/Green wire ( I got mine from Daiso in the gardening section. I suppose you can purchase these at any gardening store, or any DIY store!)

    4) A black hair band or wire to wrap the flowers around.

All you really need to do is to gather the flower selection and wrap the wire around it to secure it properly. I chose really small flowers like baby’s breath because it looked so delicate and fresh, and to balance that “freshness”, I picked flowers that were slightly on the duller side. After doing 2 of the flower selections, I tied them to the 2 ends of the hairband using the brown wires and started to bend them inwards to meet in the middle. Voilá!  There you have it, a perfect flower crown.  You can do more than 2 sections, depending how thick you want the crown to look. I don’t usually do DIY things, so for my first DIY project, it was SO EASY. I’d definitely be making these again!

The flower crowns really brought my inner flower child/hippie out. Enjoy!
