DIY Floral Crown

A couple of days ago, Chad and I decided to shoot a Mowgli-themed set of pictures. You know, that half-naked child in The Jungle Book? Here’s a teaser:

But no, I wasn’t half-naked in the pictures, silly. Lol. Anyway, see that floral crown that I’m wearing? I made that myself and I will show you how to make your own in the following photos. πŸ™‚

First, you’re going to need five thingsβ€”a thin, bendable wire; a pair of scissors; pliers, a green tape; and a set of silk or satin flowers. You can also use real flowers; however, they wilt really fast so it’s much more practical to use fake ones. Do not use plastic ones though because they’re stiff. Here I’m using satin flowersβ€”they look like the real deal from afar. πŸ™‚ Also, to make things easier for you, select flowers that have wires attached in them. I bought these at a Japanese store called Daiso at Php 33 a color (80 cents).

Next, create the base of your crown, which should be the size of your head, using the wire and the pliers. Be careful when doing this, better if you let someone else do this for you.

Then cover the wire with the green tape to make it look like a stem. πŸ™‚

Wrap the wires of the blooms tightly to the base of the crown. You may use pliers too when doing this. I selected the flowers with the lightest color and combined them with the darker ones afterwards. Please note, however, that you may use whichever flower color, type, and size you desire.

Repeat the process…

until you’ve covered the whole base. And you’re done. You can also re-tape the crown to make sure the wires won’t hurt your head (sometimes the wires tend to stick out a bit).

It’s that easy~ and cheap too! This only cost me around Php 200 ($5) and took me 30 to 40 minutes to make. Enjoy! Please visit my blog again soon, I’m excited to show you the photos Chad and I shot. Toodles! πŸ™‚

    Ahhhh! So pretty. :> Where did you get the flowers? πŸ™

    • At a Japanese store named Daiso πŸ˜€

      • Belly

        May I know where the store is located? πŸ™‚

      • There are a lot of Daiso branches in Manila actually but you can find one in Cubao near Gateway and inside Eton Centris πŸ™‚

      • Belly

        There are no silk flowers in Daiso (Alimall) :((

      • Did you ask the sales people or you looked for the flowers yourself? There’s another Daiso store near Gateway. πŸ™‚

      • Belly

        Asked the sales people. 😐

      • I see. I looked for the flowers myself, since most of the people I asked didn’t know what silk/satin flowers look like. :3

      • Belly

        May I know where the Japanese store is located? πŸ™‚

  • jixyz

    • I think they still do πŸ™‚ You’ll find them near the school supplies lane πŸ™‚

  • Arielle

    Where can I buy the floral/green tape? :))

    • Your local DIY store or bookstore may have one. recently bought these stationery tapes at National Bookstore and they’re actually a lot better than the green electric tape I used in this post. πŸ™‚

      • Arielle

        Can I find it in Daiso or Saizen?

      • I’m not sure but you can try. However your best bet is National Bookstore. πŸ™‚

      • Arielle

        Okay. Thank you so much! :))

  • GEm Mendez

      • GEm Mendez

        i want to ask meron po bang DAISO branch near batangas ? or san po ung mga branches ng Daiso? thanks πŸ™‚

      • I’m not really sure. Try looking in everything 99 stores, the Chinese-owned ones.

  • Nikki

    Can I just use glue gun to put the flowers on the wire or I really need to use bendable wire?

    • Yeah definitely, but I can’t assure you that your crown will be as durable.

  • Swiftyy

    Can I use a garterize headband??

    • You can, but you’ll have to stitch the flowers on it instead of wiring. πŸ™‚

  • Zion Campo
