How to make a flower crown
Before you start, place the flowers in water for one to two hours, so they can absorb enough water and will wilt less quickly.
Bend the floral wire into a circle that fits on your head, and attach the ends together with floral tape. This is the base of the crown. Wrap the floral tape around the whole circle, so you don’t see the wire anymore. Grab the copper wire and twist it around the frame a few times and then around the first leaf to secure it. Do this with all the leaves, until the entire wire is covered with greenery.
Once that’s done, it’s time for the flowers. Attach them to the wire the same way as the leaves, using the copper wire. Make sure that the biggest flowers are in the best spot of the crown so that they become the eye catchers. When all the flowers are attached, you’re good to go!

Remember that you’re working with fresh flowers and they won’t stay beautiful for a long time. Carefully sprinkle them a few times during the day, to keep the flowers alive for as long as possible.
