DIY Flower Crown

Why spend big bucks on a flower crown when you can DIY? Here are 5 easy steps to get you ready for a summer full of flower crowns! In honor of Memorial Day, we're repping our American pride with our red, white and blue...

What you'll need to get started:
ribbon (thicky and shimmery/slightly transparent)
flowers
scissors
hot glue gun
hot glue sticks
measuring tape (optional)

Step 1: Measure length of ribbon around your head
Using your ribbon (or tape measure), loosely measure one time around your forehead. Cut your ribbon to match this measurement, adding an extra inch. Take the two ends of the ribbon and tie it in a tight bow or knot. If needed, wrap the ribbon around your head to double check where your bow/knot should start. It never hurts to double check!

Step 2: Trim flowers
Next, start cutting off the stems of your flowers. Leave enough stem left that you can still pinch the stem and hold up the lower. Throw away the excess stems.

Step 3: Hot glue flowers to the outside of your ribbon
Starting at the ribbon knot, begin hot gluing your flowers to the outside part of your ribbon. Put the hot glue directly on the flower stem, instead of the ribbon to keep the ribbon looking pretty. There is no right or wrong way to arrange your flowers, so pick and style and go for it!


Step 4: Hot glue flowers to the inside of your ribbon
Once you have glued flowers all the way around the outside of the ribbon, begin hot gluing the rest on the inside. Gluing flowers on both sides of the ribbon will make your crown more full!


Step 5: Let the glue cool down and flowers set
Let the glue cool and harden (approximately 10 minutes to be safe). Once your flowers are safe and secure, you're ready to style your new flower crown!


Make your #OOTD extra fun, festive, and vibrant with a flower crown! Wear it with straight hair, a messy bun, a loose braid or summer beach waves!
