Ingredients:

Peonies
Ranunculus
Feverfew
Seeded Eucalyptus
Black Berries
Scissors
Floral Tape
Fine Gauge Floral Wire (cut into 5 inch lengths)
Floral Cloth Wire (2 pieces)

ranunculus, peonies, seeded eucalyptus

How to make the hoop to hold the flowers:

1.  Take the 2 pieces of floral cloth wire and place one piece midway on top of the other piece and with the floral tape, tape the two pieces together. You will cover the entire wire with the floral tape.

2. At this point, you can wrap the wire around your head and if it is too long, cut off what is needed, but always allow enough length for any adjustments at the end.

Wiring the flowers:

3.  Cut the fine gauge floral wire into 5 inch lengths

4.  Wire the flowers and wrap the stems in floral tape (helps to seal in the moisture)

5.  For the peonies, because of the thickness of the stems, you can simply place the wire along the side of the stem and wrap with the floral tape
 
Note....you can also make little bundles of flowers by mixing certain flowers together

6.  Once you have wired and tape all the flowers, cut the stem down to about 2 inches

Making the floral crown:

7.  Start placing the flower bundles on the hoop and taping them in place.  At this point, just go for it and make it as small or as big and fluffy as you want!

8.  Once completed, make a small “hook” on the ends of the hoop to hold the floral crown in place on your head.  You can also tie ribbon on the ends if you like.
