Floral Headdress

Step 1-
Gather the flowers for the headdress. Choose colors of different types and sizes. Choose colors that coordinate with the outfit it will be worn with. Include filler flowers such as babies breath or greenery

Step 2-
Shape heavy gauge craft wire into a circle that is just larger than the crown of the head. Make the circle large enough to sit just above the ears. Twist the ends of the wire together to close the circle

Step 3-
Wrap the entire wire circle with floral tape. Overlap the edges of the floral tape so that no part of the wire shows. Wrap the tape snugly, allowing for no movement once the entire circle is wrapped

Step 4-
Trim flower stems to 1/2 inch. Attach the flowers to the headdress by wrapping the stems with floral tape. Place flowers close together, placing filler flowers in any small gaps.

Step 5-
Heat up a hot glue gun. Put a small dot of glue on the headdress to glue any loose flowers in place

Step 6-
Tie ribbons to the back of the headdress. Leave lengths of ribbon hanging from the back that are around 12 inches long.

Step 7-
Store large floral headdresses in a refrigerator until it is time for them to be worn
