Do it yourself: Rose floral headcrown!

I'd been meaning to buy myself a floral headcrown for months, or maybe actually since last Summer, but I never got round to it! Then one day when I was reading the lovely Izzie's blog and I came across her blog post on how to make a floral headcrown, and knew I had to make myself one! I actually ended up using the finished headcrown as a prop in a photoshoot I was part of, and I'll link it below :)


 You will need an alice band and some fake flowers with wire in the stems. I got the alice bands from Primark and they were £2.50 for  a pack of three. I got the roses from Hobby Craft and they were £2.99 for a pack of 6! They had many different types of flowers so pick whichever you like! :)


You will need a plain alice band so if it has a bow or ribbon on it, simply remove it. Mine was only connected by glue and came off easily with a pair of scissors! Remove one of the roses from the packet and it's up to you, but I decided to take off the plastic leaf too.


Now get the first rose and position it where you would like it to go on the alice band. If you decide on an odd amount of flowers, obviously the first one should start exactly in the middle, but if you decide on an even amount, the first one should start to the left of the centre so that another one can go next to it! Simply twist the wire around the headband, keeping it as tight as possible.


Keep adding the roses one by one, keeping it nice and tight. Having the roses tilted to one side of the alice band will mean that when the floral headcrown is being worn, it will give a fuller effect and look more like a halo.


The floral headcrown could be complete at this stage with only six flowers if you wish, as some people will prefer it with a more subtle effect. I felt that for the photoshoot I would like a much fuller effect so added an extra rose to each side :)


Here are the final floral headcrowns! I will defintely be making some more in different colours and different style flowers! How ridiculously easy are they to make?! They would go so perfectly with a little summer outfit at a festival or an outdoor wedding!

Here is my favourite photo from the photoshoot I styled for the magazine I've been making as part of my uni project. My good friend Clementine took the photographs and I love how they came out :)
