Floral Crown and Bouquet

by Valorie Kelley

October 4, 2016

I am by no means a florist but for a project that I am currently working on I needed to gather pretty details on a small budget. I decided to create a bouquet, floral crown, and corsage to go with my greenery themed engagement session. Also I threw in a pop of gold because why not 😉 Arranging the bouquet was actually quite fun but the floral crown was a challenge. That being said, my supplies included:

  • Corsage Pins (I like the ones with pearls on the ends)
  • Jewelry Wire
  • Floral Tape
  • Off White Ribbon
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • 1 Bunch of Baby’s Breath
  • 1 Bunch of Leather Leaf Ferns
  • A few wild green plants… carful not to pick poison ivy!

To create the floral crown I twisted the wire, wrapped the crown with the floral tape, and then began taping small stems of Baby’s Breath to the crown. The tricky part was attempting to keep each stem even without having larger stems on one side of the crown. I know it isn’t perfect but I am pleased with the results!

Of course once I finished the crown, I had to add a touch of Gold!
