Once the base of your crown is finished, cut your flowers and attach them by wrapping the stems around. If this is not strong enough, attach them more firmly with the wire. To further solidify your headband, you can use the second ribbon by wrapping it all around. You can choose to arrange your flowers on the entire crown, or stop at 3/4.
If you want a crown that lasts in time, you can, of course, opt for artificial flowers. The most beautiful are found in decoration shops, florists or specialized sites.

ADORABLE CROWN OF FRESH FLOWERS
Too happy to meet you today with an article very different from what I usually offer you. A few weeks ago I participated in the festival We Love Green with Lajoiedesfleurs.fr and I was able to make my very first wreath on their pretty stand. I imagined it would be complicated but it is really within the reach of everyone even less manual. I found the experience really fun but also very relaxing. And what’s more fun than being able to create yourself the perfect accessory to decorate your hair or a hairstyle?
Today I offer you a quick tutorial to make a crown at home, at home. I chose to leave on a crown thin enough to wear as a jewel of hair. You will see that there is no need for a lot of material and all the steps are very easy to do.
An assortment of very fresh and seasonal flowers. I chose lavender, baby’s breath, small branched roses, eucalyptus, astrantia, round blue thistles, statices and Achille millefeuille. I advise you to go on species that age well drying because you can keep your crown very long. Do not hesitate to ask your florist for advice! If you are in Lyon I recommend a thousand times to go to my florist of love from me, Miss, located at 42 cours Charlemagne 69002 Lyon.
The first step is to prepare all the plants. The stems are cut so as to leave only 3/5 cm and the leaves are removed. It must be ensured that each plant is as clean and regular as possible.
Once all the plants are prepared it is necessary to attack the structure of the crown on which one will come then arrange the flowers. To do this, there is nothing wizard! Just join the two wires wrapping them with Floratape. This tape is stretchable and allows to perfectly cover the iron wires giving them the appearance of a real plant stem. The Floratape also makes it possible to create a catchy and non-slip surface to facilitate the adhesion of flowers. Be careful to wrap it at an angle so that you do not iron several times at the same place, the result will be much thinner.
Once you have a regular stalk, create a mini loop at each end. Cut a Floratape strip a little longer than the stem. Stretch it on each side so that the material is well adherent.
Place a first plant at the beginning of the stem and then fix it by wrapping the beginning of the Floratape band around. Do this with all the elements alternating colors and varieties of flowers. Note that if you want a large crown and provided, it will first create mini bouquets that you will then assemble to each other. Here I voluntarily chose to associate the plants one by one for a very fine, light and delicate rendering.
