How to make a Wedding Flower Crown

This article is going to share and follow Christy Meisner Doramus's  step by step guide to create the most stunning yet easy Flower Crown; published in her book Flower Crowns: 30 Enchanting DIY Floral Creations. The following step by step guide has been cited from www.brides.com and the photos below are courtesy of Christy Meisner Doramus.




Step 1: Begin by cutting each of your flower and greenery stems about 2 to 3 inches long to make a pile of sprigs that will be woven into your flower crown.

Step 2: Measure the moss-covered florist wire to fit around your head and secure it in a circle by twisting the ends around each other. This piece will serve as the base of your crown.

Step 3: Attach the first sprig to the moss-covered florist wire with florist wire by wrapping the two together.

Step 4: Cover the florist wire with florist tape and wrap it around the first piece, leaving extra tape at the end to begin securing additional sprigs. Tip: The florist tape will stick together very easily so when you need a new piece, simply wrap it around the initial piece.

Step 5: Gather 1 to 3 additional sprigs of assorted flowers and greenery. Pinch them together and add to the growing strand by securing them to the moss covered wire with florist tape.

Step 6: Continue building your crown by adding flowers and greenery in small bundles while using your florist tape to wrap them around the growing strand.

Step 7: Once you have reached the desired length and design of your crown, begin to finish it by clipping the remaining stems so they are even.

Step 8: To create an even look on both ends of the crown, you can use a piece of greenery identical to the one you began with and turn it the opposite way, wrapping it to the end with florist tape to cover the ends of the stems.






Although flower crowns tie in perfectly with Boho wedding themes; you don't need to have a Marquee/Outside venue to embrace this look. Flower crowns are elegant and classy and can look amazing regardless of a theme! 

However, if you are going for this theme we think that our bespoke Boho Cones and Boho Envelopes will look stunning and timeless. We also recommend earthy coloured petals; such as Apple Blossom and Snow Drop hydrangeas, Champagne and A Hint of Pink rose petals and Cotton Candy and The Main Ingredient Larkspur confetti. Given that a Boho themed wedding will most probably contain lots of flowers and lots of floral decorations; we think that keeping the confetti as neutrally coloured as possible will give off the definite 'less is more' vibe.
