How To Be A Flower Goddess

While growing up, my parents would take my sister and me camping quite a bit.  We would find creative ways to keep ourselves busy and entertained, so sometimes we would go on a hunt to find the most beautiful wildflowers.  We would try to wrap them around each other and tie the stems together with tall grass to pretend like we were flower goddesses.  The crowns would never stay together very well and would fall apart in no time.
This way of making a crown is probably not as ideal to make in nature since you need craft store supplies, but the crowns don't fall apart, and they are super fast and easy to make and look really cute. 

What you will need:
  • Bouquet of flowers, or hunted down wildflowers
  • floral wire
  • floral tape

Cut the stems of your flowers so they are about about 2-3 inches long.   
Measure your head with the wire to see how big your Flower Crown will be.  
Wrap the wire or tape together to the desired crown size.   

Tape about three flowers together to save time (see photo above) and wrap the flowers to your wire. 

You can make the crown as full as you want.

Keep adding flowers and taping, until the crown is as full as you want.  

That's it!  

Now you too can be a Flower Goddess, just like Josie in the photos above.
