I think every girl in the world have childhood stories about flower crowns, it only differs if it is charming, funny or embarrassing. Mine, I think is charming, because flower crowns made me feel like a princess. I remember the first time I wore one was when I was a flower girl on my father’s colleague’s wedding. I was wearing a very cute princess-y pastel green gown accessorized with a flower crown made of white roses and a white basket full of it too. After that I started picking flowers (secretly) from my grandmother’s garden every afternoon of summer with my childhood friend and connect them all to make a crown, then we pretend to be either a princess or a fairy but sometimes both. Fast forward to 2014, I no longer wear such things but flower crowns are not just for flower girls anymore, thanks to Lana Del Rey and countless style bloggers. They’re for spring parties, picnics in the park, brides, bridesmaids, hippie music festivals and anyone who loves sporting a whole head of blooms. As we slowly step into spring, music festival and wedding seasons I rounded up all my favorite DIY flower crown that I have been pinning since February on my DIY Ideas Pinterest Board. And unlike in my childhood, you don’t need to secretly pick the flowers on your grandma’s garden.
10. Bluebird Silk Flower Crown: I know flower crowns aren’t for everyday look, but a few months ago I saw a girl around my age on the bus on my way to school wearing a flower crown like this. So if they were for everyday look, this would be the one you should rock. (via Brazos Valley Bride)
11. Bold Art-Inspired Crown: First look at the flower crown it reminded me of some renaissance painting. That is why I love it more when I learned the story of this crown project that was inspired by a piece of classical artwork. (via The House That Lars Built)
12. ’90s-Inspired Crown: I’m not really sure what makes this ’90s, (is it because 90’s weddings usually have jumbo flower crowns?)but I’m loving the combo of deep and pastel hues on this one. (via Design*Sponge)
13. Wildflower and Billy Ball Crown: Here’s a flower crown that was really used by the blogger herself on her wedding day and yes, that’s her hubby wearing a a Polar Bear coat for the nuptials. It’s for a wedding, festival or anything under the sun or moon kind of crown. (via Lyndsay Undseth Photography)
