Step one – Prepare your materials
Before getting started, we advise
you to get prepared. Clear your workspace, and ensure you have all of the materials
you need readily at hand.
To create your DIY dried flower
crown, you will need the following;
· Wire – to shape to your head, creating the base
of your crown.
· Floristry Tape – to attach your dried flowers
to your base.
· Dried Flowers – Carefully select your favourite
British grown dried flowers from our website.
· Ribbon -
You will require some ribbon to tie your crown to your head, if you prefer a more
rustic look, try using jute instead.
· Secateurs – To trim your dried flowers, wire and
Step Two – Measuring your crown
Now that you have everything you need, you can begin to get
creative. Start by measuring your wire around the circumference of your head. Make
sure you leave around 3 inches extra on the ends, as you will need to twist
these to create a loop for your ribbon.
Do this by folding the bottom of your wire back on itself,
then twist the two wires together, which will leave you with a loop.
Tip - Double check
your crown still fits, and re-adjust if you need to.

make it much easier for you to arrange your dried flowers along the wire, and
make it must less fiddly.

will not only give the crown a nicer fuller finish, but also ensure it is more
Tip - We recommend, changing which three you add each time
to give variation.
Attach the stems using your floristry tape, by wrapping it around
the stems a several times until you are happy they are fixed in place.
Step Four – Begin to Make Your Crown
Now that you have added all of your dried flowers to your
crown, and are happy with how it looks. It is time to add your finishing touch.
Choose the desired length of your ribbon, you may want a
statement trailing bow, or something quite rustic and simple.
Thread your ribbon through one of the loops you made
earlier, and then through the back of the second. This should leave you with
two ends to tie as a bow once placed on your head.
Step Five – Voilà!
Position your flower crown, tie the bow, and enjoy a little
