There’s no denying that flower crowns are always a hit. From enchanting fairy princesses to girls at Coachella, there’s never a wrong time to sport a flower crown. Halloween is no different. With the right blend of colors, you’ll have a crown perfect for the spooky season.
Embrace your inner Bohemian this Halloween with a sweet floral crown. There’s really no right or wrong way to make one of these, but here are some basic guidelines to help you create your own. We decided to go with orange, black and white flowers to stick to traditional Halloween colors, but you can create an arrangement that will coordinate with your Halloween costume or outfit.
- Silk flowers – gather more than you think you’ll need
- Wire cutters
- Floral tape
- Floral wire
Measure wire around your head. Add about a ½ inch to that length and twist wire on itself to secure in a circle shape. (TIP: Needle nose pliers will allow you to make your twists tighter.)
Wrap the wire around circle shape at least two more times to make crown more stable. Cut wire.
Secure small filler flowers around crown using floral tape. (TIP: Start securing flowers on one side of the crown and work your way around to the other side, periodically checking for even spacing and balance.)
Add leaves to crown just under small flowers.
Wire larger flowers in between smaller flower clusters.
Fill in gaps with more filler flowers. For added interest, insert spikey feathers where desired.
It’s that easy to create a flower crown fit for the storybooks, or your Instagram feed. Just think of all the cute photo ops you can have picking pumpkins or treat-or-treating with a stunning Halloween flower crown.
