This spring we have enjoyed creating faux flower crowns and wreaths with flowers that we chose from the homeware section in our local Homesense store. There were bundles of fabulous faux flowers to choose from, including foliage and it really was difficult to decide which colours we wanted to take home. Spring time offers an abundance of fabulous colours and blossoms so we decided to opt for colours with a pink hue.
The tools needed to make crowns and wreaths are very simple and include wire cutters and florist wire. There is a headband tutorial on another blog post which you can view by clicking here. And to catch an idea of how we made our wreath you can pop over to my You tube channel and watch this quick visual tutorial.
Using faux flowers for wreaths and crowns mean that you have a lasting effect and do not have to be so delicate with your blooms. I do have a garden full of fresh flowers but love to experiment with arts and crafts using faux flowers.
Florist wire is flexible and flimsy meaning that you can control the style of your wreath and produce a free hand effect. I always think a rustic, home made wreath looks better than shop bought ones. Vintage is oh so cool! Faux flower crowns and wreaths are really easy to make.
My little girl is always in favor of modelling flower headbands and loves to be really girly. I turned this headband into a hanging wreath for my front door, just by adding garden twine around the top to hang it.
You can find a selection of faux flowers in store at your local Homesense UK.
