A few weeks back we received a treat that I couldn’t wait to show you. It is a DIY baby’s breath floral crown tutorial featuring a model in a beautiful blue depths BCBG dress. A DIY floral crown is perfect for any member of your bridal party, especially a flower girl. It is so easy to do yourself, lets see the steps to make it.
Remarks from the photographer: “With the popular trend of colored wedding gowns this season, I wonder: What if a bride made her gown something blue?
“I set out with my friend/model, Kerry, to create a bright, bold and colorful bridal styled shoot with the color blue as our inspiration.
“This shoot happened to involve a DIY-marathon. Kerry and I made the bouquet and floral crown from flowers hand picked from the grocery store. We chose Avila Beach as our setting. With an expansive pier, romantic beach, and colorful beach-town storefronts I think it provided the perfect backdrop. My favorite moments were captured while we explored beneath the pier. A former dancer and figure skater, Kerry provided an energy and radiance that perfectly complemented the light of the setting sun.”
Floral Crown Instructions
Cut a piece of floral wire (approx. 12 inches) and twist loops at each end.
Cut two pieces of ribbon (approx. 18 inches each) and the tie end of one piece through wire loop. Repeat on opposite side of wire with the other piece of ribbon.
Use either floral tape or wire to wrap the stem of a small bunch of baby’s breath to the wire.
Overlap additional bunches of baby’s breath to cover stems. Wrap and repeat until entire wire is covered.
