Today we have another pretty DIY brought to you with our partnership with AFloral, our favorite silk flower company! Spring brings on so many gorge colors so we thought it would be fun to make, of course, a flower crown! But with a twist – its all made of silk flowers so you can enjoy it year-round! Or if you plan to DIY a flower crown, using silk flowers let’s you complete this project a month in advance (or more!) so you don’t have to worry about this the day of your wedding when you should be enjoying the day!!
Lots of possibilities with AFloral’s selection, so you can really get creative here and make this your own! Here’s how we made ours…
What You’ll Need:
• Silk flowers from AFloral. We picked berry spray, pink baby’s breath, daisies, lambs ear, cosmos, lilac + waxflower; which all can be found on this curated page on Afloral.com
• Floral Wire
• Floral Tape
Step 1: Begin by taking your floral wire and shaping it around your head to fit.
Step 2: Trim the heads of your silk flowers beforehand, then begin one at a time wrapping floral tape around the wire frame to the flower. Floral tape gets sticky as it stretches, so give it a tug to help keep in place. Also face your flowers in one circular direction as you move along so that they all face forward.
Step 3: Continue moving along your wire frame with flowers. We used a lot of medium sized flowers first, then filled with bigger focal flowers (Dahlia) and filler flowers (berries).
Step 4: Lastly, fill in any spaces with filler flowers or extra flowers you have to make the crown more full. Reinforce any loose pieces with more tape/glue.
Such a pretty spring or summer look! And it pairs pretty perfectly with the Alhambra Gown from BHLDN, right?!
If you make your own flower crown with AFloral using these steps or supplies, we’d love to see how it turns out, so please share on Instagram along with the hashtag #GreenWeddingShoesDIY. We’ll regram our faves!
