Floral wedding crowns are ideal for simple garden weddings and of course for a rustic barn wedding.

We have rounded up a few simple steps on how to make a gorgeous floral wedding crown.  Here is how to make your own.

  • Choose your flowers

Of course, you want to start your floral wedding crown with a layer of beautiful flowers that cover the wire. This will serve as the base of your crown. As possible, choose a combination of small and large ones. Make sure to choose some un-flowered foliage-eucalyptus leaves and succulents are very popular right now.

Trim off the leaves on the stem near the bloom, but not so close that the flower or leaf won’t stay in the floral wire for your floral wedding crown.

  • Measure the floral wire’s length around your head

When measuring, leave around one-fourth inch of wiggle space since you are going to pack it with a lot of greenery. Remove the excessive wire; the rest should be formed into a spherical shape.

  • Choose some flexible items of your un-flowered greenery, use short wire lengths to shelter it to the wire base

Before you know it, you’ll have a circle of greenery, not a circle of floral wire. This will serve as the base for your awesome floral wedding crown creation. You may want to leave it as is at this point because it’s surprisingly gorgeous, if you don’t like the idea of wasting all those beautiful flowers you just trimmed though, start adding them.

  • Add flowers

Make sure the stems of flowers are at least three inches long to attach all flowers to the crown. Tape the stem to your crown using a floral tape. Similar to greenery, make certain the tape wraps around the stem about 4 to 5 times.

  • Secure the flower to the base of greenery by covering a spiral floral wire around the stem

If the stem is more than a one-half inch, it may be necessary to secure the flower using a wire at the stem’s end and at the bloom’s bottom. Make sure the ends of the wire are not pointing to the circle within. This is to avoid poking of your scalp when the crown has been putted onto.

Floral crowns can be simple or complex www.thehoneycombshop.com

Additional tip:

In order to make an even look on the crown’s ends, use a piece of greenery similar to the one you started with and turn it the reverse way – wrap it to the end using florist tape so that the stems’ ends will be covered.

When arranging the flowers, begin to the side of center, which leaves a gap in between. Arrange your flowers to ensure they’re facing similar way. When you are done with the sides, choose the element to be used as your central point.
