TOOLKIT

What You Need:


Step One

To start all you need to do is position your first flower in the middle of your headband. Then once in position simply begin to tightly wrap the wire stem of your flower around the the band, making sure that the flower head is nice and secure.

Step Two
Carry on wrapping the complete length of the wire around the band, in a figure of eight action. Make sure that the end of the wire is tucked flush underneath so that there isn’t any excess wire sticking out.

Step Three
Continue using this method for all your flowers until you’ve covered your headband or until you reach your desired amount of coverage.

Alternatively you could purchase a thin simple alice band from eBay and use a hot glue gun to stick the heads of the flower straight to the top.

And it’s as easy as that! The great thing about doing this method is you can reuse the flowers multiple times and also it allows you to change the headband as the base of the crown. You can opt for different shades of flowers, try a mix of lilac and white or a full red flower crown.
