My good friend Krista asked me if I knew how to make flower crowns because she was doing a photoshoot and her client wanted to wear a fresh flower crown in her hair. I love flower crowns and told her to come right over with the flowers she wanted in the crowns and I would help her.

The supplies I used were: floral wire, wire coat hanger, fresh flowers, Glue gun, wire cutters and twine/ribbon.
After cutting the hook part of the hanger off, I bent the wire into a circle shape. For Krista's wreath we glued a neutral gimp on the wire and for mine I glued fat twine. The reason I did this was so the wire would not show since I did not want the flowers to go all the way around, just mostly.
I cut the flowers stems short and then
started to arrange them in pattern I liked. I cut the floral wire into short pieces ( about 5 inches or so).
To attach the flowers to the wire circle, I wrapped the floral wire around and around a few stems to hold it tight. I keep doing this until I was done.

To keep the flowers fresh until the photoshoot, I placed them in the refrigerator.
