Next to the bride, the flower girl is the most remembered person in the bridal party when it comes to what she was wearing. A simple crown made of wire, ribbon and flowers can make your flower girl look like a little princess who'll be the talk of the wedding.

Step 1

Measure the flower girl's head with the wire.

Step 2

Trim the wire to fit but leave some extra length at each end.

Step 3

Twist the ends of the wire together with the pliers.

Step 4

Wrap the wire with floral tape.

Step 5

Wrap the wire with the 1/4-inch ribbon and hot glue the ends.

Step 6

Attach small bunches of flowers or ivy to leaves with hot glue. Continue until the headpiece is covered.

Step 7

Attach more ribbon to the back of the crown. Tie the ribbon in the middle around the wire and trim to the desired length.

Step 8

Glue single jewels to any empty spaces or glue strings of jewels to the crown in a loop.

Tips

  • You can substitute tulle for ribbon.
