I am SO happy I finally made this! I guess it takes a little trip to Boracay to make things happen. HAHA I’ve always wanted to make my own flower crowns (floral crown / flower headband.. too many names) because those ones sold outside are either too expensive, the flowers are too ugly or they are too small for my big head.
So yup, I finally went to the craft store and bought some supplies. Went to a couple of florists to buy fake flowers. Damn, they are quite expensive too!!
Anyways, I bought them for RM 33 for 3 bunches, the pink roses had 12 flowers, and another 2 was smaller type of rose / peony buds in shades of purple and cream. I super love them cause they came in 2 shades and it just makes the crown prettier.
They were relatively easy to make, just glueing flowers on the wire, really. But it takes abit of sense to not place them too symmetrical, or too well arranged. Cause its just meant to be a summery, fun, bohemian, chillaxing thing. Hahaha not sure if that makes any sense but just try not to be too engineered about it.
So let’s get started
Here are some of the supplies you need. Floral wire, green floral tape, pliers, glue gun and most importantly, flowers.
If the wires are not long enough to go around your head, just connect them by twisting it.
now, to use floral tape, you need to stretch it before you twist it around. It is only sticky after you stretch it.
And you’re done!
I made a couple more after this.. I’ll bring them ALL to Boracay! HAha I’m a little crazy. Till then!
*suddenly my hair looks so nice with a pretty cool ombre, but actually I was just standing in front of my balcony door with a sheer curtain, at 8.30am.
