- Un-flowered greenery, i.e. vines
- Flower clippers
1) Trim about an inch off the bottom of each flower then put them in a vase of water for at least an hour, adding flower food if they came with it. That way, the blooms are well hydrated before you begin building your crown.
2) Measure a length of floral wire around your head. Leave about 1⁄4 inch of wiggle room, because you’re going to pack it with a bunch of greenery in a second.
3) Pick out a few flexible pieces of your un-flowered greenery, and use short lengths of wire to secure it to the wire base.
*Mix it with a variety of un-flowered greens
4) Add flowers. Clip flowers so it has somewhere between 1⁄2 inch and 2 inches of stem beneath it.
5) Secure the flower to the greenery base by wrapping a spiral of floral wire around the steam. If you have more than 1⁄2 inch of stem, you may need to secure the flower with wire both at the base of the bloom and at the end of the stem. Make sure the ends of your wire aren’t pointing to the inside of the circle. Otherwise, they’ll poke your scalp when you put the crown on.
*Add flowers until your crown feels finished!
*The blooms should face outward, of course, because your head needs to be inside the circle.
