So when I think of music festivals, I automatically think of flower crowns. This trend has been so popular, I just couldn’t resist. When you think of EDM music, you might not think straight away of flower crowns. I tried to channel Lana Del Ray- Summertime Sadness (remix, of course) to get that summer sexy flower crown vibe that you could easily rock to VELD this weekend.
Now I could have just gone and bought a crown but that just seems too easy, right? So today I will show you 3 different sizes & styles of flower crowns plus I add a bit of spice with a head chain.
First will be the BIG flower crown. Super easy! Use a thick wire to create a halo shape and fasten the ends together. Fasten flowers to crown, alternating the angles that the flowers face and cover more than 1/2 of the wire.
Next, I tried a different style of flower crown using suede cording as the base and braided three pieces together. Where the pieces meet in the braid, you can use that hole to insert your fake flowers and glue them there. This style of flower crown is fun because you can style it many different ways: tie it straight across your forehead or wear it like traditional headband-style. And it is not one size fits all so you can always share with your friends!
Last style is super, duper easy! Grab a piece of ribbon and poke holes along the centre. Push your fake flower through the hole and secure in place with hot glue. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Five- ten minutes max if you’re in a time crunch!
Finally, a chain headband. I think this style is so sexy but didn’t think I could pull it off. It is super simple to make as long as you have the right tools. Some chains, a couple of small metal rings to fasten the chains together and pliers! You don’t have to do anything too fancy like add hanging pendants; it can be as simple as 3 chains attached together. I styled it by parting my hair straight down the centre and having my hair in loose, wavy curls. Simple yet sexy.
Here are some looks showing how I styled them in an outfit.
Enjoy your long weekend, you crazy canucks! Don’t forget to stay hydrated this hot weekend
