Because they are more durable, choose flowers that have rigid stems. There are many great options for flowers, including carnations, roses, leucospermum and celosia, as well as foliage such ruscus or eucalyptus.

Step 1: Measure your head

To make loops at either side, you’ll need two inches more.

Step 3: Keep your flowers very short

Step 4: Begin with a piece of foliage

Step 5: Secure it with tape

Grab your floristry tape to hold it in place.
It can be kept on the reel. However, keep the open end of the tape over the wire and stem. Then pull the tape to make it clear, then wrap it tightly around.
Repeat this process until you feel it is secure.

Step 6: Next, use a flower to do the same.

To hide tape marks, you want your flower to be as close as possible to the foliage.

Step 7: Add all your foliage and flowers

Continue to repeat steps 6 through 7, alternately between flower and foliage, until you have a full crown.
Keep your tape in place and keep your stems aligned as you move.
Save some of your larger, focal stems to the front.
