Flower Crowns
This delicate and bohemian flower crown is a great summer music festival accessory and looks particularly amazing paired with a lightweight dress or jeans. Pictured from left to right here, the flowers used to create this crown include white wax flowers, white and purple wildflowers, chamomile flowers, and assorted greenery.

  • How to make a flower crown. Summer Concert Fresh Flower Crown - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather 2–4 small sprigs of assorted flowers, cutting and leaving each stem no longer than 3–4 inches. Pinch the bunch and the moss-covered wire together with your thumb and index finger. Hold this bunch together while preparing to form a flower chain.
