A while back, I blogged about my sister’s wedding, you can read about it here. The wedding is less than a month away and we are so excited! As I was going through the wedding planning check list, I realized it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged anything else about the big day.
Honestly, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged at all. So busy with life and everything going on that I guess I just haven’t made time to put pen to paper, or in this case, keyboard to word doc. Blogger’s block I call it. I finally turned on my laptop this morning and decided to share another DIY wedding idea.
To complete the flower girls’ look, we decided on cute flower crowns. Flower crowns aren’t just gorgeous, they’re a simple way to add an elegant touch to any look. They’re inexpensive, available online, in stores like Claire’s, or you can make them yourself. Just google “how to make a flower crown” and you’ll find plenty of blogs, articles and video tutorials on how to DIY. Here are the sources I used to get started:

Or check out YouTube here for video tutorials.
Look at these beautiful flower crowns:
I spent less than $12 on materials to make three flower crowns (and I still have lots left for other crafts.) Materials can be found at any craft store or your local Walmart. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Wire cutter
- Real or faux flowers and/or greenery
The article or video above provide detailed instructions, but here’s a diagram. It’s so easy!
My daughter and I made them together. I added some champagne colored beads to the flower crowns for a jeweled look. They turned out nice, this one is my daughter’s!
Flower crowns are so versatile! Bridesmaids, flower girls and even brides can wear them, and they can be worn for other occasions as well. You can make a simple crown using baby’s breath, or go crazy and add flowers of all colors, shapes and sizes. The best part? They’re cheap, quick and easy.
Stay tuned for my next blog and find out what we did for centerpieces.
