Wedding Hairstyle DIY: Wear Flowers in Your Hair

Posted by Azure on June 30th, 2011
Floral head wreaths have been reinvented and I must admit that in the past, I would have told you to save the wreaths for the flower girls. But bohemian chic style has reemerged and with it, a chic new spin on floral headdresses.

Today, my inner flower child says that a floral headdress like the one above is the perfect wedding hairstyle accessory for summer I Do's. And believe it or not, it's totally DIY! Refinery29 posted about its Kanon Organic Vodka Swedish Midsummer's party and shared how to steps so you can recreate the look. Here's the scoop: To DIY the floral head wreath, you'll need: • 18 gauge floral wire • Floral tape • Clippers • Floral wire • Pale green silk ribbon • Italian ruscus • 1/3-bunch white wax flowers • 1/3-bunch pink wax flowers

Step 1: Measure your floral wire to fit the crown of your head (roughly 23 to 25 inches). Allow roughly one extra inch at both ends of the ring.

Step 2: Wrap both ends inward to create a small loop. Use floral tape to adhere loops. Use a very small strip of light-green silk ribbon to adhere the two loops together in order to form the rounded base of your wreath.

Step 3: Hand-wrap floral tape onto the stem of each of your flowers (wax flowers and stems of Italian ruscus).

Step 4: Use floral tape to adhere flowers to the wire base. The spacing of your flowers may vary, depending on whether you want a plush garden look or a minimalist design. To DIY a floral headband, you'll need: —1/4-bunch each white & pink wax flowers —Italian ruscus —Floral tape —Clippers —Pale-green silk ribbon —A headband

Step 1: Tightly wind your pale-green silk ribbon around headband mold. No traces of the mold should be left visible.

Step 2: Weave the Italian ruscus around your headband, end-to-end. Use a small cut of floral wire to fasten the greenery.

Step 3: Clean your flowers and gentle hand-wrap stems with green floral tape.

Step 4: Use floral tape to adhere flowers to the headband. Floral accents will be positioned on top left of the headband.

If you've already found your dream bridal veil, consider making these for your bridesmaids or flower girl. The wreath for your flower girl, blooming headbands for your 'maids... it's a Midsummer Night's dream!
