How to make a Floral Easter Crown { guest post }

Today’s Easter guest post is from the delightful Melissa Mander-Jones who blogs at Miss Sew & So. She describes herself as loving styling, crafting, living & laughing by the sea and every time I visit her blog or see her pics on instagram I wish I didn’t live so far away so I could pop over for a craft session and a glass of wine in her relaxing & gorgeous abode.

Everyone needs a Floral Easter crown…

This Easter craft is super quick…and CRAZY cute, once you have all your *bits* together.

We are making this at Audrey’s 9th Birthday with her *bestie gang* from school.

I’m going to have each place sorted, and set up with all they’ll each need to make their own.

I can’t wait to see how they put their’s together…undoubtedly I’ll be sitting on my *helping hands*!!

I’ll be thinking balance and they’ll be thinking *go-for-it-fun*!

The girls sweet-as crowns will have a creative energy, that as party-planner,  mine will not!

What you need:

-fabric flowers…all sorts, go as simple or indulgent as you like!

-craft wire for the actual head piece {I found some in our fabric store covered in soft white fluff stuff!}

-garden ties



What to do- building that crown!

-remove all the fabric flower heads from their stems, leaving a small green end to tie onto the crown keeping the flower in firmly in place.

-measure your craft wire for the head to be crowned…

-cut to size and join so all the sharp ends are covered and tied. Lay on the table with all your inspiration {flowers, vine leaves…etc etc}

-using the green garden ties, firstly tie your vine leaves as the base and build up using your larger then smaller flowers to fill the spaces in between.

-be sure to tuck all the garden tie ends in upon themselves, so there are no sharp ends!

Put on head in your dressing gown…giggle and enjoy!

This is one of the simplest, prettiest easter/birthday crafts we’ve done.

It’s super inexpensive and almost built from what you may already have around your home!

Enjoy!
