Floral crowns have been a big trend for weddings and festival goers for a little while now. But, for those of us who aren’t keen on the idea of wearing one, this project is an adaptation which can be used to decorate walls, not heads, at a summer event or wedding.

 

here's what you'll need...

  • A wire coat hanger
  • A selection of flowers and greenery
  • Floral tape
  • Floral wire
  • Scissors
  • Washi tape (optional)

here's how it's done...

  • 1

    First, shape your clothes hanger into a circle.

    Group together small posies of flowers and leaves and tape together with floral tape.

  • 3

    Start at the top and tape a posy to the hanger. Continue with another posy, using the flowers and leaves to cover the stems of the last posy.

    When you reach the half way point, start at the top again and work around the other side.

    When you reach the middle you will probably need to cover any stems showing with some additional flowers. Use floral wire to attach these as it will be difficult to tape these on. Do this for any other gaps that you feel need filling.

    You can then either leave the hook part of your hanger as it is, or you can wrap it in washi tape if you’’d prefer to cover it.

    Then simply hang up and enjoy! If you would prefer a longer lasting wreath then use some good fake flowers. A real one will only last around 24 hours, so try and make it as close to your event as possible.
