What you'll need:
- Thin, bendable wire or twine - this will act as the base of the crown
- Flowers and greenery
- Craft wire and or floral tape (this will be used to secure down the flowers to your crown)
Step 1: Measure Your Wire
Shape your wire or twine around your head and determine how big you want your crown to be. Leave 2cm of extra wire for space. Make sure you take into account how your hair will be shaped at the event (if you're wearing it for an event) and how you want the crown to fit your head.
Step 2: Add Greenery
Great greenery options include Myrtle or Leather Fern for a delicate look. For a bolder statement try Ivy or Eucalyptus leaves. Wrap the stems around the wire and affix with floral tape.

Step 3: Add Flower Bunches
Create bunches of flowers by wrapping three stems together using floral tape. We recommend one larger flower with two smaller flower varieties.
Once you've created five or so flower bunches, begin to wrap the bunches around the crown. Use the flower tape or craft wire and make sure the stems are secure and position the flowers to face outwards wherever possible.

Step 5: Store Your Crown
Voila! Until you're ready to wear your crown, make sure to store it in the fridge to keep the flowers fresh.
