THE POPULARITY OF FLOWER CROWNS
The history of flower crowns goes back to ancient times, in Ancient Greece it was often worn to celebrations and as an honor to the gods. In the more recent past flower crown were associated with the hippie culture of the 1960s. This in turn influenced mainstream fashion, bringing flower crowns back into style for weddings today.
Flower crowns are ever-popular today for weddings and festivals. Brides love the fact they symbolise love and fertility – coming full circle with the wearing of a May crown and celebration of new life in the spring.
Not only are flower crowns an integral part of all the best weddings – check out Princess Charlotte’s waxflower and gypsophila flower crown at Pippa Middleton’s wedding on 20 May – but they’re also a fun project to make as part of your hen party celebrations.
YOUR DIY FLOWER CROWN
Once you’ve formed a wire base for your flower crown decorating it is all a matter of taste. You can keep it streamlined and simple, or pack it with flowers for a more Boho look.
There are two vital ingredients for your tool box – floristry wires and stem tape. You can buy them both from Amazon or at the flower market. I recommend a 0.71mm wire for your base and finer wires if you decide to wire your individual flowers (0.56mm/silver rose wires) and tape to bind everything in place.
