What you’ll need:

  • fresh flowers trimmed down to 2-3 inch stems
  • 2 pieces of 16 gauge floral cloth wire, or wire twine
  • green floral tape
  • scissors

For a recent dinner party hosted by our friends at forage, we were inspired by the bohemian theme, and went on a hunt for wildflowers.

We took to the trails at Bellair Farm in search of Spring blossoms, and found a variety of colors for our crown-making.

Step 1:

Create the crown halo with two pieces of floral wire. Bend each wire into a half circle and be sure to check the fit around your head. Tape the overlapping halves tightly together with the floral tape.

Step 2:

Start 10-15 small clusters of flowers, taped together at the base. Trim the bottoms as necessary. Have fun creating patterns with the flowers!

Step 3:

Add the clusters to the circle crown halo. Tape the clusters one by one along the outside of the wire circle, using floral tape to tightly attach the clusters. Continue to overlap the clusters around the circle in the same direction until the crown is filled.

Step 4:

Spritz the crown with water and keep it in a cool place until it’s time to wear it!

We had a blast making our flower crowns, and know you will, too. Check out how we wore them at forage’s Color Me Bohemian dinner party… coming soon!
