Floral Crowns You Can Make

When I saw another Vingler's, Claire Pettibone runway collection, I was immediately brought back to the age of romance and innocence. I thought about flowers in the hair and then started to look up ways to put a floral crown together.
Whether it's for your wedding or a baby's christening, or whatever, putting together a floral crown will take your most Spring cotton outfit to the next level. Coachella is over. Don't wait till next year to do this cute idea.
Needed:
(5) “Juliet” Garden Roses
(3-4) Berzillia Berries stems
(1) Jasmine stem
(10) Ranunculus
(2) Rice Flower stems
4′ 3/8″ Frech Double Satin Ribbon
Green Florist tape
16 gauge straight wire
Ribbon Shears
Bonsai Shears
1. Cut all of the flower stems to 2-3″ in length.
2. Wire and tape large blooms (the roses and ranunculus) individually, keeping them sturdy.
3. Cut a piece of ribbon about 4′ long because it needs to be long enough to wrap around, tie back and drape.
4. Take a piece of 16″ gauge wire and use floral tape to attach it to the ribbon about a foot from the end. The wire keeps the crown shape and adds an element of stability to heavy flowers..
5. Adding the flowers is easy! Start by using greens or berries that extend past the end hiding the mechanics.
6. Alternate the flowers and greens in an appealing way, keeping everything low and tight.
7. About three inches before the end of where you want the flowers to end it’s time to flip the product the opposite direction and tape it that way so both ends look finished.
Pretty simple. And beautiful.
It's best to make these the night before a wedding and sealed in a bag or tupperware--stored in chilled refrigeration. You don't want the flowers to spoil. Spritz with water to hydrate.
If you were going to wear a floral crown, which would you prefer, something small scale and country or larger with dramatic beauty?

I'd go big. Let the flowers be seen from a distance. Plus you want the people sitting in the back of the church to see what's on your head.
The smaller style head wreaths are my favorite
Quite the tutorial. Pretty @daniachicago
Glad that you like it. I am in love with this idea. I'd do this for any reason. Not just for weddings

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
