DIY: Flower Crown

DIY flower crown

Here is a fun DIY to make your own flower crown! I have two styles that I made and both are fairly easy to do. I made them both in under two hours – and it will probably be faster for you since I had a few trial and error issues that you won’t have to figure out :)

DIY flower crown

Supplies Needed:
• silk or fabric flowers (I bought these from Michael’s)
• thin floral wire in green
• thick floral wire in brown
• wire cutting scissors
• felt squares
• scissors
• tacky glue

We are creating two different looks today. The first is a yellow + white ranunculus flower crown (as seen above).


Step 1.Take the thicker floral wire and create a loop for your head. This is the time to decide how low you’d like it to fall on your head. Then twist the ends for the size you’d like.


Step 2.Select the flowers you want to use in the order you like.


Step 3. You’ll notice the flowers still have a little stem on their back when you pull them off the longer stem. Cut the stem off, so you can attach it easily to the wire.


Step 4 and 5.To make sure the flower’s don’t flip around, you will need to cut some small circles with the felt. Since we have 5 large flowers, we’ll need 10 circles. The size of the circle should be smaller then the flower petals so you won’t see it from the front. Attach the felt circle with tacky glue to the petals. Once those have dried (about 10 minutes) attach the second circle with the flower crown circle between – this will prevent the flowers from moving around.



Step 6. After the large flowers are attached, you can now add some smaller flowers. To attach these smaller flowers, wrap them around the wire crown with the small floral wire. Keep adding more flowers until you like the look of your crown. :)

For the second one, we wanted a bit more bohemian look, so I used small silk magnolia flowers to achieve this.

With these flowers, they can just be attached with the small floral wire – no felt needed. Cut each bloom with a few inches of stem still remaining so you can attach the flower with the wire. As a tip, just keep attaching flowers from the center and moving outwards until you get the look you like. There is no right or wrong look, so just keep adding as many as you like. :)

  15. Help! I’m making these right now and the tacky glue is not working….the felt pieces keep pulling away from the flower. Any tips? I bought something called “Tacky Glue” at the store. Is there a specific brand you used?

    • Hi Kimberley – I just used the tacky glue that comes in the brown bottle. Worked great for me. If that doesn’t work for you, you could also try using a glue gun. Best of luck!

  16. That is so cute! I would never have thought to use wire underneath that is so much easier to work with then finding some kind of branch or rope to do this. Also much easier to stick the flowers on. Thanks for the tips!

  17. Your floer crown look so delicated and cute! And its super simple to do!!!
