How to Make a Flower Crown in 6 Simple Steps

Flower crowns are a breathtaking addition to any look, whether you're headed down the aisle or to Coachella. Read on to learn how to make a flower crown yourself in our complete step-by-step guide. But first things first: let's talk about what flowers to use in your flower crown.

When it comes to making your own flower crown, not all flowers are created equally. You want to look for small filler flowers because these smaller blooms will fill in gaps between your focal flowers. Yarrow, ranunculus, spray roses, baby’s breath, or wax flowers are all solid choices. Pair the filler flowers with your choice of greenery. We love eucalyptus because it's soft and flexible and gives your flower crown an ethereal look. Sturdier alternatives like olive branches and Italian Ruscus also work well.

For an even bolder flower crown, you can incorporate larger, centerstage focal flowers like garden roses, peonies, anemones, or orchids.

Now that you know what flowers to use, let's dive into how to make a flower crown.

Supplies needed for making a flower crown

In this example, we're creating a stunning bohemian flower crown — all the flowers came from the wholesale in flowers included in the bright bohemian mix pack from FiftyFlowers using some items from our basic flower crown supply kit.

We chose this pack because it includes an eye-catching blend of colors and textures, including thistle, purple statice, pink spray stock, orange spray roses and purple statice.

In addition to your flowers, you'll also need:

Here's exactly how to create your flower crown!

1. Connect Two Pieces of Wire

Start by connecting two pieces of wire. Pro tip: If you plan on using heavier flowers, double up on the wire to prevent the blooms from drooping. Cross the wires at about five inches and twist them around each other. You can also use a fabric-coated wire, similar to the one found here, which is what we decided to use for our bohemian-themed flower crown.

Step 1 of How to Make a Flower Crown - Measure and Connect Wire

2. Measure the Wire Around Your Head

Measure the wire around your head. You will want to make sure you leave some extra room as the floral tape will cause the wire to become smaller as the flowers are wrapped around it. Twist the other side of the wire until you have formed a circle. (Also, don't forget to keep your hairstyle in mind to make sure you have enough room for the crown to fit comfortably on your head!)

We had an additional spool of plain floral wire on hand in case any ends of the stems needed some extra reinforcement to get them into the rounded shape. We, fortunately, were able to get away with just floral tape attaching them to the crown form, but it would still be a good idea to have extra wire on hand for the occasional wily stem.

3. Trim Your Flowers

Trim your flowers, leaving about three inches of stem. (You can always trim your stem a little shorter if you think it is too long for the design you have in mind.) To save time, we recommend cutting and prepping your flowers all at once so you don’t have to go back for each flower.

Next - Trim your flowers

4. Wire Each Flower Stem

Depending on the flower, some stems may not be as sturdy as others. If you’re working with flowers like ranunculus, we recommend wiring the stem for added support. Cut a piece of wire about four inches long, push it through the stem close to the head of the flower, and bend the two wires down the length of the stem. The flowers we used in the bright bohemian mix pack has hardy flowers so we skipped this step.

5. Wrap With Floral Tape

Use floral tape to wrap the entire stem. This step is also optiona
l, but it makes the biggest difference as it adds support and creates the illusion of one solid stem. You can also wrap a few blooms together to create a small bunch of flowers.

6. Attach Flowers To Crown

Find a pattern of blooms and greenery that fits your style and begin to add the flowers to the crown, all the while securing them with floral tape. Add each stem in the same direction, making sure to alternate your flowers and greenery if you're adding it, adding clusters of the filler flower in between.

Attach your flowers to the crown

7. Fill in the Empty Spaces

Use the floral adhesive to attach the filler flowers in any empty spaces. Pour some of the glue on a disposable container and let it become slightly tacky. Then, dip the stems into a small amount of glue, and insert the filler in between the other flower stems. In this particular crown we made, we chose to only cover a small portion of the crown, but you could continue to add more flowers or greenery until you get a fuller, more elaborate look. It's up to you!

8. Refrigerate Your Flower Crown (If You're Not Wearing It Immediately)

If you make your flower crown in advance, store it in the refrigerator to help keep the crown as fresh as possible! Make sure it is placed in a safe spot, away from fruits and veggies. If you have an abundance of fruits nearby your flowers will emit ethylene, a natural gas that speeds up ripening and flowering. To be safe, you should remove any fruit in the refrigerator, or make sure they’re contained in a plastic bag or crisper drawer. When you’re ready to wear your crown, mist it with some water and it'll look fresh and fabulous!
