DIY: Floral Crown


I attended a Halloween/birthday party this past weekend.  The finishing touch to my sugar skull costume was my flower crown.  There was no way I was going to spend a crazy amount of money on one so I headed to my local dollar store for all of the components.  I spent a grand total of $6 to create my crown.  I could easily make about two more with the leftovers.  Here is how to make your very own flower crown in just a few simple steps:
You'll need floral wire, faux flowers, hot glue (not pictured- sorry I forgot :), pliers, & floral tape (optional)

With the wire create a circle that fits comfortably around your head (make sure it's easy to put on/take off)
Tuck in the ends of the wire.  If needed use floral tape to cover any sharp edges
Cut your flowers with the pliers and place in desired direction using hot glue to secure. 
Add as many flowers as you would like then let dry.
And there you have it, a pretty crown of flowers!
