Do it yourself dried floral crown
Let me start off by saying I am not professional at making these. I'm just a photographer who loves to do crafts and also save a penny! These floral crowns are to be used for photographs. Do not leave the crown on your infant unsupervised.
Things you'll need
- Hot glue gun
- Jersey knit fabric preferably white or cream 14 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide
- Baby breath-dried floral as base
- Any small dried flowers
- Small styrofoam ball
- Optional finger protector for the hot glue
I used dried floral from Hobby Lobby
you can order some from Amazon as well.
Small dried flowers
These are the ones I used. I cut these suckers at the very tip of the stem.
Dried baby breath
This was used as my base. I cute these about an inch long and stared glueing to the fabric
Use a base
I used a styrofoam ball from Hobby Lobby.
I obviously used it as a base to tie the headband around. Made it hella easier to glue the floral to the fabric.
I can't remember the diameter but I picked the smallest one they had. The 14-inch long and 2-1/2-inch wide jersey knit fabric will fit an infant, toddler, and older child.
This is what it looks like when you glue the baby's breath in any direction. For a more put-together crown, you will need to glue the floral all in one direction. These do shed after a few uses. I suggest you use a spray adhesive when you're done gluing.
