diy : dreamy floral crown

This DIY was inspired by a Valentines Day photoshoot that I've been planning for the past couple weeks. I've been dying to make a flower crown and to have it as a prop in a photoshoot, so this was just a blast for me to make! Hope you enjoy the loveliness that's about to ensue :)

- fake flowers! 

I stuck with just a couple of big fake peonies and then picked up a lot of "greenery" to get a more natural look. I found some fake twigs, lots of leaves, and a couple of white flowery accents

- wire  &  wire cutters

 - floral tape

1. Measure your piece of wire so that it fits around your head and cut it at the proper length with your wire cutters. I doubled my wire to make my crown a little more stable. 
2. Cut your flowers/leaves/twigs down to manageable pieces. Start with a couple pieces and wrap your green floral tape around them and the wire. 
3. Repeat step 2 all the way around your wire! It's okay if you start off sparse, I filled my crown with a couple layers to make it more full. 
4. Close off your wire, make sure there's no wire showing by wrapping floral tape around. Feel free to use a glue gun to secure loose pieces....

and voila! you have yourself a beautiful, dreamy, and absolutely lovely floral crown =) 

Keep your eyes open for more from my Valentines Day shoot. The big reveal is tomorrow and I'm absolutely giddy with how lovely and dreamy this photoshoot turned out!
