The Savvy Girl's Guide To
Making a Floral Crown
When I first saw floral crowns blossom into trend, I knew it would be the perfect idea for a DIY. I, unfortunately don't share the same crafting streak that so many other inventive bloggers do. So I asked my dear web friend Kacie Cone from the blog Shy Girl Loud Voice to share her artistry with us and demonstrate the simplest way to make a floral headband.
Californian-raised, Portland-based Kacie is a talented singer/songwriter with a knack for bohemian style and a genius on the guitar. I hope it won't be long before we see her debut album in stores, or if not that first, a Free People campaign is most certainly in her near future. I will now leave you in the creative hands of the lovely Kacie.
Take it Away Kacie...
You Will Need:
All you are going to need for this DIY is some flowers, a headband of any kind that you wish,
a pair of scissors and a hot glue gun.
The first thing you are going to need to do is pull the flowers off their stems.
They should slide off very easily!
The next step is to cut off the small stem but beware because that small stem will fly across the room if your not careful!
Lastly hot glue your flower directly on to the headband and make sure to hold it in place for a couple seconds to ensure it sticks.
And that's it! As you can see from the pictures shown above, the possibilities for your flower crowns are endless, so be creative and have fun!
Celebrity Inspired Floral Crowns
Celebrities have been paving the flower path with many different and endearing floral looks. You can customize the size and colours of a DIY floral crown to your personal specifications. Go dainty like Alexa Chung, Katy Perry and Kirsten Dunst. Try white daisies for an indie summertime look, as seen on Aly Michalka and Vanessa Hudgens. Or if you're particularly enamored by the trend, go big with romantic rose wreathes in pretty shades as Pixie Lott, Delta Goodrem and Lana Del Dey did.
Thanks so much to Kacie for doing this fabulous DIY. I hope you are also inspired to create your own unique floral fascinator using her easy-to-follow steps.
