Floral Crowns seem to be the go to accessary nowadays.


I have seen them worn at Outdoor Weddings, Prom Nights, Hen Nights, Outdoor Festivals, and even Baby Showers.


My Tutorial will give you a guide on how these are made and I hope it will give you the inspiration to have a go.


If you need any advice please get in touch and I will be happy to help with any questions.

Supplies Needed:

Floral stub wire available at any good florist (Medium weight.22 gauge its similar to 24 but a little stronger).

Floral Tape Parafilm

Flowers of Choice

Greenery of Choice

Ribbon (I use 2inch/5cm Hand torn Silk Ribbon around 1.2 m)

Large Sweet Tin

Tissue or Paper Towel

Large Tupperware Box


Additionally you may choose to spray the finished crown with a floral preserving spray (like Smithers Oasis Clear Crowning Glory) available on Amazon: This spray traps moisture. Or spritz with water to refresh the blooms when you are ready to wear it.


Store your beautiful crown in the fridge in a Tupperware box covered with damp tissue paper to keep it fresh for your event.


However not all flowers are OK in the fridge such as Gerbera, Orchid, and Tropical Flowers. These would need to be made on the day so not really suitable for the DIY bride simply because of the time unless someone else is making your crown.


Hydrangea flowers can be used if using my hydration chamber method and should be fine but they need a lot of water so with this in mind I would advise to give them a miss for DIY.


Opting for a flower crown doesn't mean you have to forgo a traditional veil... You can wear both of them together.

Use the same florals in your bouquet and headdress for a totally pulled together look. Each crown will be unique.
