Flower Power

A flower crown is a must for any hippie in training! Just ask Pinterest!! Despite my lack of crafting skills I was able to, with the help from a friend, create an inexpensive and super cool flower crown quicker than you can say hippie-dippy-trippy-coachella-petchuli stink. Swearsies

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We started by wrapping 2 pieces of raffia wire together to our desired circumference. No idea if that’s what it’s actually called, but it looks like flower wire wrapped in raffia. You can find it in the silk flower section]

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We used wire cutters to keep the sharp edges from scratching.]

diy-flower crown-coachella- hippie -boho- bohemian[We choose 2 different kinds of fake flowers, a main white one and then a smaller beige flower. We took off all of the leaves and some of the white flowers and added smaller beige petals to give it a little somethin’ special.]

The finished product!!! For under 10 bucks, I think it’s the perfect accessory for a photo shoot, a wedding, or whatever hipster music festival you’re heading to next!!! Enjoy!!!

  1. It’s gorgeous Lauren! You did a great job : )

  2. […] Here are my two little gals all glammed up for Halloween. These costumes were for a school party yesterday, so, since it wasn’t officially Halloween, M didn’t want to wear her “main” costume, and asked for me to put together a princess fairy for her. We had all the basics from her dance class clothes, made the crown, and luckily she got some fairy wings for her birthday. We learned how to make a princess fairy crown here. […]

    Hello, your flower crown look beautiful! I was looking to build something similar but I am having a hard time finding the raffia wire thing…
    Question: is there actual wiring “inside” the raffia? Or is it just raffia twisted on itself? Do you have any tips on where I can find it?

    Thanks in advance and your blog is great! =D

      Hi Theo,

      It’s actually a raffia wire. You can buy it pre-wrapped around thick gardening wire, we found it in the floral section of Michaels! Good luck!!

      Thanks for stopping by!!! xoxo Lauren
