For effortless rustic wedding style, you need a floral hair crown! We spoke to Central Coast florist Emma, from Emma’s Floral Designs, to get a step-by-step guide for making your own floral hair crown...
“Right now a lot of brides are opting for a rustic themed wedding,” Emma explains, “and many of them are forgoing the traditional veil in favour of a rustic floral crown. You can use plenty of different flowers to create the rustic look, including roses, lisianthus, poppies, baby’s breath, dusty miller and more.”
To create your DIY floral hair crown, you will need:
A selection of flowers (with the stems cut down to three inches)
Two pieces of 16 gauge florist wire
Green florist tape
Measure the size of your head. You can do this by wrapping the two pieces of wire around your head and securing the overlapping pieces with the florist tape to form a circle.
Cluster together the flowers into small groups and bind them with the florist tape. It’s suggested you would need 10 to 15 clusters depending on the size of your crown.
Fix the clusters of flowers to the wire, overlapping them to hide the stems. Add them in the same direction and keep going until the circle is complete.
The best way to wear these crowns is with your hair down and slightly wavy — channel a romantic, boho look!
To keep your flowers fresh, seal them in a sandwich bag in the fridge. Keep them away from fruit and veg though to avoid the petals browning.
