As a follow up to my last post {a recap of the Bellinis & Blooms Party I threw in my new home in Miami}, I am excited that my party co-host Christy Doramus of Crowns by Christy is here today sharing her steps for how to make her highly sought-after Flower Crowns. I have worn both her live and faux crowns for birthday parties, holidays {like for the 4th of July in Aspen}, and for bachelorettes, and they are always the highlight of the photos!

At our Bellinis & Blooms party Christy set up an entire table of lush flowers to choose from, from peonies and spray roses, to garden roses and babys breath. She walked guests through the steps, allowing them to take a tray and cutters to create their crowns from start to finish. For those of you at home, get out your notepad because she is kindly sharing her step-by-step tutorial today and it is totally do-able! {and highly recommended whether you are looking to get crafty at home, or want to make this a fun activity for a group of girlfriends!}. Oh and for those of you not so DIY, have no fear because Christy takes orders online {here}! Thanks Christy for sharing this fab craft!

How to Make a Flower Crown by Crowns by Christy:

Supplies needed:

  • florist wire
  • garden shears or scissors
  • thick and pliable craft wire
  • fresh seasonal blooms (we used blush and white flowers such as spray roses, garden roses, baby’s breath, lisianthus and ranunculus)

Step 1:

Cut your flowers, leaving 1.5 – 2 inches of the stem and create a pile of blooms to easily select those you want to use as you work.

Step 2:

Use the craft wire to create the base of your flower crown. Measure it around your head to make sure it fits and then twist the two ends together.

Step 3:

Place your first flower  against the craft wire. Us the florist wire to wrap the flower to the craft wire 2-3 times around, but make sure not to pull too tightly as it can rip through the stem.

Step 4:

Repeat Step 3 by adding individual flowers or small bunches of blooms in the same direction (1-3 pieces at a time). Every time you add a flower, you can cover up the wire from the previous bloom.
