If you're like me, then you're obsessed with Snapchat- and let's be real, the filters that come with it. I have loved the flower crown filter- I just enjoy the little extra fun. So I decided I finally would learn how to make them!
What I love about this craft is it's easy- it can be time consuming depending on how many flowers you're using. But it's also inexpensive. The wire & tape you use- you can use it for so many other projects & it's going to last you. The flowers- if you're like me & love coupons, then you can get these inexpensive at the craft store! You can also decide how big, small, simple or extravagant you want these to be! It's a fun project to do with your girlfriends with some wine & snacks!
Here is how I created mine (and trust me, I learned the hard way of not doing my research ahead of time):
I like to also sort everything out as I'm cutting. It just makes the thought process of the kind of crown your creating & the actual creating of the crown a little easier. I sort out the flowers based on size & color if necessary too.
Once I do this, I start thinking about how it's going to look. Am I going to create a pattern? Is it going to be totally random? Do I want it to have a ton of flowers? Do I want it on the lighter side? You can make this however you have envisioned it!
If you need more tape- get more tape or you can trim the stem right from here too. You're going to keep repeating this until your crown is complete!
I tend to do repeating patterns on my crowns. So if you're doing this- to make sure it's even, I do one set of pattern on one side, then one set on the other side & continue to alternate until I hit the middle.
If you're using the thin headband, decide what you want to be the focal point on the top of your crown which will be on the top of your head. I'd start here at the middle point & work your way down the sides!
