HOW TO

DIY Flower Crown Step 1

1. Create the Base

Cut 4 pieces of cord, 2 light green and 2 dark green, each about 38” long. Fold the strands in half, creating 4 parallel loops. Tie an overhand knot about ½ in below the loops, making 8 strands all together. Snip off 2 strands, 1 of each color, leaving 6 equal sized strands in total.

2. Secure the Base

Tape the loop to a secure and flat surface, such as a table. Separate your strands into 3 groupings of 2. Each grouping is made up of 1 light green and dark green strand. A strand grouping will be on the left, in the center and on the right.

3. Braiding

Cross the left strand grouping over the center strand grouping. Take the right strand grouping and cross it over the new center strand grouping. Give the strands a light tug to tighten. Continue to braid for half an inch. Place a clip to the end of the braid so work remains tight.

4. Thread the Beads

Thread in the beads before the strand grouping is crossed over to the middle. Choose a flower bead and a flower sequin bead. Using a single strand from the left strand grouping, thread the cord up through the bottom of both flower beads through a seed bead. Thread back down the top of the two flower beads. Push the flower bead against the base of the braid. Remove clip.

5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4

Braid spaces in between each of the flower beads. Keep adding flowers and petals to your liking until the braid is long enough to wrap around your head. As you reach the end, braid for 3 in.

6. Secure the Braid

Secure the end of the braid with a double overhand knot. Remove tape from the beginning of the braid and slide the knot through the loop. Make sure the knot is large enough to keep the crown closed. Trim away any excess cord.
