How to Make a Flower Crown

Whether you have an upcoming party or wedding to attend, or you just want to wear flowers in your hair while hanging around the house (no judgement here), a flower crown is the perfect way to add a little fun to your outfit!

Start by measure the grapevine around your head where you want the crown to lay, then twist the ends around to hold in place. Then make bundles of your flowers, stems should be about an inch in length, and secure with floral tape (the process is very similar to making a wreath). Once you have enough, place on the grapevine, all facing the same direction, and wrap ends with floral wire. You’ll use the next bundle to cover the base of the previous one so that no floral tape is visible. Continue until you’re all the way around and wear!

Before hosting the Flower Crown Workshop at West Elm last weekend, Hello Lidy and I teamed up with our photographer (Ian Kennelly) to make this fun video. It’s hopefully the first of many videos to come, so I hope you enjoy!
