I’ve seen so many beautiful flower crowns in magazines and on social media recently and I’ve always wanted to have a go at making one but never found the time to sit down and learn how. This past weekend I was stood in my garden staring up at our Cherry Blossom tree fawning over the lovely, delicate, pink, fluffy clusters and I decided that some of the smaller branches would be perfect for building a quick and easy crown.

The great thing about this project is that you need hardly any materials and it really is super quick so why not have a go.

For your 5 minute flower crown you will need

A long flexible branch (we used a Forsythia branch to add an extra layer of colour)

3 or 4 trimmed blossom branches (choose the ones with lots of clusters on)

Some natural coloured string

The Make

Bend the long branch into a loop around your child’s head so that it sits comfortably over their forehead.

Tie the ends together with string and trim.

Build up your crown using short sections of the blossom branches. Secure each piece to the headpiece by wrapping string around a number of times and tying off.

You can either cover half of the headpiece or the whole thing, we did half.

It really is that simple, a few snips of the scissors and a couple of knots is all it takes. Definitely no flower arranging skills necessary! This Big Sister was thrilled with the results and said she felt like a real flower fairy.
