I have a real treat for you DIY couples out there today. WWW teamed up with Interflora on this delightful flower crown tutorial a few weeks back now. With WWW intern Anna’s sumptuous concept, Interflora brought it into glorious life.

Decadent rich toned blooms work wonderfully against the ferns and foliage. And you know what, it’s super simple to re create. I have a real fondness for the flower crown (yes I was a flower crown bride) and I think there are definitely here to stay. YAY.

To make the base of your crown, tape two pre-cut lengths of florist wire together with florist tape. Cover the wire by wrapping a length of florist tape around it.

TOP TIP: To get the perfect fit, measure around your head with a length of yarn and cut your florist wire to size.

 

Step 2

Bend the wire into a circle, and twist the ends together to secure. For extra strength, wrap a small piece of florists tape around the join.

 

 

Step 3

Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut the stems of the flowers and foliage to approximately 2 inches long. Mount several ivy leaves onto wire by stitching a length of thin florists’ wire through each leaf. Fold the wire in half, and wrap one length around the stem to secure

TOP TIP: Wrap a length of florist tape around the stem and wire to create a cleaner finish.

 

Step 4

To mount the flowers onto florist wire, fold a length of wire in half and hold against the flowers’ stem. Wrap one end of the wire around the stem, in the same way as wrapping wire around the ivy leaves.

Begin to arrange the wired flowers in clusters to the crown, making sure to alternate the colours and different flower sizes as you work along the length.

TOP TIP: Start the crown with a length of asparagus fern clustered with a large hydrangea head and a small spray of kalanchoe for a pop of colour.

 

Step 7
