When Sheela Goh asked me to do a floral themed outfit, I thought: ok cool I’ll pick a floral outfit and go from there. I decided however to get inspired from Coachella and put on a floral crown. Who said floral crowns are only for the spring and summer. You can totally rock them for the fall.
Floral Crown Options
I decided to go shopping for one without any luck. All the options were disappointing. I mean come on, with all the Coachella inspiration out there which I wrote about, could someone not come up with something more attractive than what I was seeing??
DIY Floral Crown Accessorizing
That’s when a lightbulb lit. I decided to make my own. I picked a floral crown from Ardène that had small flowers.
I wanted to use it for my floral outfit but I felt it was incomplete. So I decided to revamp it with some Babys Breath.
If you love the dress I’m wearing, you can find similar ones at Max Fancy. It’s a global community of visionary women’s fashion clothes. They offer the beautiful dresses, tops & tees, beachwear, knitwear, jackets and coats with great price points and awesome quality.
DIY Floral Crown Revamping
I had a discussion with my friend and she told me how much she regretted not buying that all black H&M floral crown. I thought that would make my floral crown even more suitable for all 4 seasons of the year. I figured this should be an easy fix.
Here’s what you need to create the crown. Most of these items can be found at the Dollar store or Michael’s.
- Headband (in my case I took the one I bought from Ardène which already had small flowers on it and I accessorized with some Babys Breath). Try to get one that’s braided or has multiple bands so you can have areas where you can glue the flowers
- Larger flowers
- Diamond stickers
- Small paint brush
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks for gun
- Black acrylic paint or fabric paint
- flat plastic plate or lid to put paint in
Cut the Babys Breath in smaller strands so you are able to stick them around the headband.
With the hot glue gun, add some glue on the headband and turn one of the Babys Breath strands by around it to secure it.
Repeat the process until you cover up all the holes.
While the crown dries, with glue gun, add the sticker diamond to the middle of one of the large flowers.
Sticking it without gluing won’t suffice. Repeat until you have a diamond on each flower.
Add some paint to your flat plastic plate or lid and dip the large flower into the paint. Make sure to cover off all of the petals.
You can dip it again for a second coat after it dries.
Once you’re done with the paint and the flowers are dry, add glue to the hole in the headband.
Stick one of the large flowers in the hole with the glue.
Repeat until you stick all the flowers.
If your headband had existing flowers like mine, you can paint them in black with a brush.
Leave it aside to dry.
The Jest of it
To DIY a floral crown, all you have to do is add some flowers with glue gun to a headband as described above.
