Celtic Inspired Flower Crown

Celtic Inspired Flower Crown

This St. Patrick’s Day, skip the tacky green gear and instead don a flower crown reminiscent of the Irish countryside. You'll look like a Celtic princess while everyone else will look like a bunch of hooligans.

I already owned the snips, wire, and floral tape so this flower crown cost me only $3 to make. One bunch of baby’s breath yields at least 3 crowns worth too, so that’s only $1 per crown! Each one takes about 20-30 minutes to make but it is a zen activity (at least for me). Would be fun for a girls’ night activity as well.

Materials and tutorial below!

You’ll need:   bunch of baby’s breath     1/2 inch floral tape      floral wire     wire snips    floral snips

You’ll need:

bunch of baby’s breath

1/2 inch floral tape

floral wire

wire snips

floral snips

How to make your crown:

Measure 2.5x around your head with floral wire, right above your ears, and snip.

Fold the entire wire in half and twist a 1 inch loop on one end.

Twist both wires together until both wires are completely entwined. Fold the wire ends into the loop, completing the circle. Snip any loose ends and twist the excess around the hoop.

Wrap the entire crown with floral tape, starting from one end and going to the other. This will take a few minutes, and you’ll want to work in sections (6 inches or so). Getting the floral tape to stay tight is a little tricky but you can smush it with your fingers as well.

Pull off several small bunches of flower, about 2-3 inches in length.

Starting from the bottom of the hoop (to the right of the closure) lay a bunch of flower stem side down beside the hoop. Secure the stem of the bunch to the wire by wrapping tightly with floral tape. Snip off any excess stem.

Continue around the hoop layering flowers and securing with floral tape.

You’re done when your crown looks full with flower to your liking.

Put on your head and wear, flower child!
