DIY- Flower Crown

DIY
Flower Crown

Hello everyone! Today I have a lovely project that my sister and I made for the Demi Lovato concert we went to (still miss that day asdgkn). And also, just because she wanted a flower crown to wear whenever she wanted hehe.
Aaanyway, it looks like this:

It's pretty simple and doesn't take too long to make either! 

What you need:

Fabric or felt of choice (we used an old lace t-shirt!) // hot glue gun // scissors // wire hanger or garden wire // ribbon (optional) // tea or food coloring to color (optional)



To start:

Take your wire, and measure it to fit on top of your head, then cut and twist the ends together.

If you're using a wire hanger just untwist it then wrap it around into a circle like so, until it is the right size for you! 


Next take your fabric and cut it into about 3in. circles.
Bigger if you like!

If you want to color your fabric pieces you should do that now. For the pink ones we used water and red food coloring, and with the beige ones we used a cup of tea!
Just let them soak up some color and leave them to dry while you move on to the next step!

While they're drying you can wrap your wire in a ribbon or bakers twine- you could do anything you want actually! We wrapped this one a couple times around. When you get to the end, finish it off with a dab of glue.
Tip: if you are wrapping your band in something, I recommend putting a drop of hot glue every so often to keep it from unraveling til you get to the end.

Next, take your dried circles and follow along with the photos below!
What you're doing is putting a dab of glue in the center and pinching it into a little bunch.

Once you have four of those you put a drop of hot glue onto the bottom of one circle and press it with the bottom of a second circle. Then the third, then fourth!
 //2nd pic putting glue on, 3rd pinching together, 4th adding all four together//

When you have enough flowers you can start assembling them onto your band!

And now you're done!
Oh and if you're interested in the nice lipstick she's wearing, that's a DIY too!
I did a guest post about it over at The Blog Hermit! Click here to see how to make it.
It's really quick, pretty and you probably have everything for it at home. :)

And here's a full view of the sweatshirt my lovely model and little sister Kori made in honor of our love for Doctor Who- we are MAJOR fangirls- and she says would be more than happy to make a tutorial on how to make one yourself if you guys would like it!

Okay that's all for now! I hope you guys like it!
If you make one I'd love to see a picture :) You can email me (flickeroflight4@gmail.com) or @justpepperminty on instagram!

Stay Minty,-Juli

  2. Looks so gorgeous, and professional. I tried to make a flowercrown once but it looked like a two year old had made it.
    Your sister is beautiful btw and I love the bad wolf sweatshirt. I'm also a huge Dr. Who fan and would love to see a tutorial on how she made it.

  16. This is a great idea!
    I've always seen the ones where you have to use fake flowers, and I can never find fake flowers that look nice, or that I like enough to use on a flower crown!
    I'll definitely be trying this!
