Valentine’s Day Craft: Flower Crowns


We ladies like to feel like princesses. That is why, this Valentine’s Day, I am looking forward to making all my favorite girls feel like the most special, beautiful and vibrant empresses. My plan: floral crowns.


Materials (makes two flowers):

  • 8 pieces of 10 in x 7.5″ tissue paper
  • 3 inch piece of wire
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Plastic headband


Step One:

Stack the eight sheets of tissue and make half-inch accordion folds, creasing the tissue paper with each fold. 


Step Two:

With scissors, cut the folded stack in half. Trim ends of the tissue into rounded or pointed shapes, depending on the type of flower you want to create. 


Step Three:

Tie a small piece of wire around the center of each stack of paper. Separate the layers of tissue, pulling away from the center, until your entire flower has blossomed.


Step Four:

Create more flowers (about seven or eight for one crown) using steps 1-3 with a variety of colors — the more hues the better!


Step Five: 

Heat up the glue gun and attach the flowers to the headband. Be as intricate and colorful as you would like. 


Et voila!
