Floral DIY contributor and Lovely Vendor BloomsByTheBox has a fabulous DIY tutorial for us today: a baby’s breath floral crown headpiece. This is a perfect little DIY for you to do for your flower girl or yourself, depending on your bridal style.
Baby’s breath accents are “all the rage” this wedding season, so you may be interested in learning how to make a trendy floral crown like this. You can even make this DIY headband double as a decorative wreath! Plus, baby’s breath is super affordable, and a little goes a long way. This project only uses about ¼ a bunch of baby’s breath. To get started, just grab a portion of a bunch of baby’s breath, floral scissors, floral wire, and floratape stem wrap and get cracking.
First portion small bunches of baby’s breath together by combining small sprigs using floratape stem wrap. You are going to need to make a decent amount of these small bundles to cover an entire floral head band, but once you get the hang of it, each little bundle is quickly made.
Next, double strand the wire, measure your head, and make a cut leaving an extra two inches at the ends. Use the rounded side (already looped side) of your doubled wire to create a clasp by putting the cut ends through the loop. Once you have put the ends through the loop, create a secure twist to hold the wire in a circle. Make sure the wire is not sticking out.
Start adding the sprigs of baby’s breath by overlapping them and attaching them to the wire with stem wrap. Fill in all the spaces until you only have a section of wire left uncovered where you made your clasp.
Tie lace ribbon around the remaining uncovered wire and make a bow. This can now be used as a floral headband or a baby’s breath wreath for décor. Baby’s breath is extremely affordable and you do not need much to make an impact. This wreath took about ¼ of a bunch of baby’s breath so this is a very budget friendly do-it-yourself flower project.
