3. Prepare the Wire

The next thing you need to get right for this tutorial- How to make a flower crown- is the wire. It is the building block of your flower crown. Take the wire and wrap it around your head to find the best fit. Leave about half an inch of extra wire to wiggle. Then you can just secure the ends with floral tapes.

4. Wrap Greenery Around the Base

This is a simple step in a DIY flower crown. You can just secure the greenery to the floral wire. Greenery like myrtle and lemon leaf will add delicate detail to your DIY flower crown headband. But if you want a most extravagant and fuller flower crown, you can use greenery like a leather leaf and dusty miller.

5. Add the Mini Flower Bunches

You would want to choose your flowers wisely. You can bunch together three blooms and attach the stems with flora tape. You can combine the statement flowers with some fillers to achieve a more balanced look. Once you are done making the bunches, attach them to the wire. 

6. Add a Few Statement Flowers

Get the flower bunches and attach them to the wire with craft wire or floral tapes. Layer it with more blooms and flowers to create a seamless look. Make sure to attach the flowers in one direction with the flowers facing outwards. Keep adding flowers to your crown until it satisfies your heart. But like everything else, you can make a few focal points in your easy DIY flower crown by adding some statement flowers.
