DIY Flower Crowns June 26 2014

Flower crowns are a perfect DIY for the summer and they're SO easy to make. They're great for music festivals, weddings, special occasions or just because! I feel like the best way to rock this look is to do it yourself. Get creative with your choice of flower type and color to make a look that's your own. I chose to use suede cord as the headband but you can use whatever you want (elastic, flower wire, leather cord etc.)
Here's what you need:
You can get all these materials at your local craft store.
Step 1: Measure the suede cord around your head leaving enough cord to hang in the back to tie.
Step 2: Cut the stems on the back of the flowers so that they lay flat.
Step 3: Using your hot glue gun, glue the flowers onto the cord. Place the flowers wherever you want. I chose to keep them close together.
Step 4: Add beads of any type to the end of the cord and tie a knot at the end to secure it.
The other way I made my flower crown was on a braided cord/elastic headband.
Step 1: Braid your suede cord. Once you have the braid to a decent length, measure it to your head. Make sure you do not go all the way around your head. Leave some room to add the elastic so it can stretch according to your head.
Step 2: Hot glue a 2" piece of elastic to your braided cord and secure it by wrapping a piece of ribbon around the suede and elastic (close ribbon with glue).
Step 3: Glue your flowers onto the braided cord.
And thats it! You got yourself a flower crown!
