DIY Flower Crowns
Is it me or is everybody suddenly wearing flower crowns on their heads? Its a Summer trend I absolutely love and as much as I adore flower crowns made with real flowers, I thought it would be a bit more practical and a fun keepsake to use crepe paper to make the flowers for the crowns we wore at Nicole’s 30th Birthday Party.
I bought the Martha Stewart Crafts flower kit to start me off in my flower making. It includes supplies (floral wire, tissue paper, foam orbs, pre made paper leaves) and instructions. The included pre-cut sheets of tissue paper were a great way to get started and refresh my memory on how to make paper pom pom flowers.
There’s also lots of DIY inspiration on making paper flowers on line. Some are great and super detailed. Check out our Flower Crown Pinterest board for more details and lots of inspiration. In addition to the Martha kit I bought magenta pink crepe paper (sold in a pack like tissue paper) and a roll of green streamers (also crepe paper). I also bought headbands to use as a base.
Summer may be half over, but I hope this inspires you to make a beautiful crepe paper Summer crown for yourself… especially since this one will last forever! I have the feeling we might be making some more versions of these in the future… Life is Sweet! Xo Dani
