Here is our simple guide to help you create your own flower head garland or flower crown:

The Materials you'll need to create your flower crown or flower head garland:


  • Flowers of your choice

  1. If you are not wearing your flower crown for a few days then artifical flowers would be better.  Paper Flowers also work really well for a flower crown, 

    Paper flowers
  • Floral wire or a flexible wire

    You should be able to pick up floral wire for your flower crown from any craft shop or even your florist.

    Floral Wire

  • Florist tape or thin wire

    Florist tape could be picked up from a local florist and craft shop or searching on google

  • Wire cutters / Snips

    Wire cutters or snips can be picked up from any DIY store, amazon or a simple google search has many options

    Wire Cutters Snips

  • Ribbon or twine

    This is where you can get creative, the ribbon could match your festival outfit or opt for timeless twine or jute string.  Ribbon is easily accessible and can be purchased from any craft shop such as the range, hobby craft or online through a google search or Amazon.

    Ribbon or twine

  • Hot glue gun (optional)

    opting to use a glue gun for your flower crown will be the best choice for durability, glue guns provide stronger adhesion, quick drying, they are easy to use, flexible, versatile against many materials and most importantly they are cost effective.  Glue guns can be purchased from many places, I did a quick google search and there were some for as little as £5 in the google search results.

    Here are the Steps for making your own flower crown

    • Measure and Cut the Wire:

      • Measure the circumference of your head where you want the flower crown to sit
      • Cut a piece of floral wire or flexible wire according to the measured length. Ensure there's a little extra for overlap

    • Create the Base:

      • Shape the wire into a circle, forming the base of the crown. Overlap the ends by a few inches and twist the ends together to secure the circle.

    • Prepare the Flowers:

      • If you're using real flowers, trim the stems to about 2-3 inches.

      • If you're using artificial flowers, detach them from their stems.

    • Attach Flowers to the Crown:

      • Begin attaching the flowers to the wire base by using floral tape or thin wire.

      • Place the flower stem against the wire and wrap the tape or wire tightly around both the stem and the wire base.

    • Create Flower Clusters:

      • Group the flowers in clusters for a more natural look. You can mix different types and sizes of flowers to create an interesting pattern.

    • Continue Adding Flowers:

      • Keep adding flowers until you've covered the entire wire base. Be sure to leave a small section at the back where you can fasten the ends together.

    • Secure the Ends:

      • Once you've covered the entire crown with flowers, secure the ends of the wire base. You can twist them together, use floral tape, or add a decorative ribbon to hide the connection.

    • Add Ribbon (Optional):

      • Flower head garlands typically have a trail from the crown. If you want to add a decorative touch, attach ribbons to the back of the garland or crown. You can either tie them or use hot glue to secure them.

    • Adjust and Customise:

      • After completing the flower crown, try it on and make any necessary adjustments. Trim excess wire or ribbon if needed.

    • Enjoy:

      • Your flower head garland is now ready to be worn! Whether for a special occasion, festival, or just for fun, enjoy your handmade floral accessory.

    Feel free to get creative with your choice of flowers and colors to suit your personal style and the occasion.
