We used fresh Peruvian lilies to create this stunning and simple DIY flower crown; using fresh flowers instead of fake ones may require more attention to detail, but adds an intoxicatingly fresh scent that is sure to turn heads!

How to Make a Flower Crown:

  1. Wrap the floral wire around your head to measure the size of your crown. Wrap a second time so you have extra wire to strengthen the frame. Set aside. diy-floral-crown_wire-shape
  2. Trim the flowers, leaving a medium sized stem, while removing any excess leaves.diy-floral-crown_flowers
  3. Take a few flowers at a time, and use the floral tape to secure along the wire frame. Continue this process until your whole crown is filled with beautiful blooms!diy-floral-crown_wrap
