Flower crowns are a sweet way to elevate any outfit for any occasion, such as weddings, baby showers, engagement parties, birthdays, or just for fun, especially during spring and summer.
This is a design I came up with for a faux baby’s breath crown, utilizing simple materials that will go with any outfit or color palette!
DIY BABY'S BREATH FLOWER CROWN
- pliable green wire (sized to fit around head)
- green floral tape
- 1 bunch faux baby’s breath
- faux wire leaf garland (like boxwood)
- white lace (I used 2.5″ wide)
- Cut 2-3 inch strips of floral tape, and wrap tightly around green wire (which should be looped at the ends), until wire is fully covered all the way around. Press firmly to make sure the tape sticks correctly.
- Remove mini bunches of baby’s breath from main stem. Secure one mini bunch at a time with floral tape along the green wire. Have each successive mini bunch begin approximately halfway down from the previous one, until you have worked your way around the whole circle of wire.
- Once baby’s breath is secure around the green wire, wind leaf garland around wire, through the gaps in the baby’s breath. Once the garland is completely around the green wire, it should conceal any gaps between the flowers.
- Finally, cut approximately 1 foot of lace. This length may be more or less, depending on if you are making this crown for a child or an adult.
- Put one end of the lace through the hole at one end of the wire, then through the other hole.
- Placing the crown on your head (or your child’s), slowly draw the ends of the lace together until the wire ends join up and the crown fits snugly. Tie the lace ends together into a bow or knot.
