Inspiring handcrafted how-to’s for your home, life and well being. Our Made By Hand series features distinct DIYs made with a little love and a lot of creative spirit. Today’s post comes from Made By Hand contributors Tegan and Lindsay of Treasures & Travels.
Real ones are beautiful, but for those long festival days they don’t always last. Having a good fake flower crown on hand to throw in your bag is a festival necessity. It won’t get ruined in transit and hopefully will last through the entire festival season.
You can always add some fresh flowers to this crown to mix it up as well. Keep it nice and simple and pick some daisies at the festival to adorn the crown once it’s on. You can never have too many flowers in your hair!
This crown costs under $10 to make! We found all of the supplies at the dollar store and love how the wood beads add a fun twist to your classic floral crown.
- craft wire
- floral tape
- fake flowers
Step 1 | Start by measuring the wire around the crown of your head to size. Wrap it around twice so you have two bases, one for the flowers and one for the beads.
Step 2 | Add beads to one of the wire bases, you can make a pattern, use all the same beads, or just put them on randomly.
Step 3 | Once you’ve added all the beads, twist it around the remaining wire to secure it in place.
Step 4 | Now add your flowers! Rip off a piece of floral tape, stretch it so it get’s sticky, and use it to secure a flower to the crown. Floral tape will just stick to itself once it’s stretched out.
Step 5 | Start at one end and keep adding leaves and flowers in a continuous pattern around the wire.
Step 6 | Keep going until you have the entire wire covered in floral and leaves!
Enjoy wearing your new floral crown to all your favorite festivals this summer! Be sure to tag your Minnetonka festival style with #FestivalFringe on Instagram.
