I’m secretly a hippie on the inside. (And maybe also a little bit on the outside.) I love feeling the sun on my shoulders, and singing Joni Mitchell songs, and running around barefoot. So what better way for a hippie to hang on to the summer than with a DIY flower crown? I can’t think of one.

I love this little crown because it’s made of feverfew and mint. Feverfew looks like little tiny daisies, but it’s also used as an herbal treatment for headaches. Did you know that? I didn’t until I brought some home to make the crown! I thought it would be cool to add some sprigs of mint so that it would smell extra good when I wore it. Good choice, me.

Materials

  • one bunch of feverfew or similar small flowers
  • a few sprigs of fresh mint
  • floral wire
  • floral tape
  • scissors

Make Time: 30 Minutes

Start by creating a crown of floral wire large enough to fit your head. I wrapped mine around twice and twisted the ends around itself to secure.

Make a bunch of mini-bouquets. Snip off a few feverfew flowers and wrap them tightly with the floral tape. Make about 15 of these; half with a sprig of mint included, and half without. (Too much greenery will overwhelm the crown.)

One by one, tape the bouquets to the wire. Wrap floral tape tightly around the bouquet and the wire, securing them together. Work your way around the crown in this fashion until all of the wire is covered. You may need a few extra bouquets if you like a fuller look.

Ensure that all of the flowers are secure and put on your crown! I loved running around in the sunshine wearing this thing. They’d be particularly adorable on a bunch of little flower girls at a summer wedding. Would you wear one? xoxo

  1. Is that feverfew? I remember my mother saying that word, but I never knew which flower it was! Now I know. Perfect idea for the end of summer, how lovely.

  2. Hey, I was wondering if I could use the picture of you facing backwards as my story cover on wattpad?
