A flower crown is a popular accessory that is used to embellish women’s hairstyles. Today this accessory is often chosen for complementing a festival or a wedding image. But the tradition of wearing flowers in one’s hair is deep-rooted.
For example, in ancient Greece, women wore flowers in their hair to honor their gods. Later on, the flowers began to signify respect and achievements – think about the laurel leaf and Julius Caesar. Then there were times throughout history when flowers symbolized celebration, love, and fertility. And today hairstyles with flowers add some boho vibes to our image.
Now let’s discover cute floral accessories to adorn your hair.

In this picture, the model wears a simple floral accessory and looks super adorable. Do you wonder what types of flowers will work best for creating a floral crown? Well, you can use any kinds of flowers, but you should consider just several things – their size, longevity, and smell.
The smell factor is obvious. If you hate the smell of the flowers, you won’t be able to wear them for even 5 minutes. Then you might have a headache or even become dizzy and sick.
As for the size, too big flowers can simply overwhelm the accessory. When combined, flowers may become too heavy to wear. So, pick smaller flowers to be on the safe side or combine small and several big flowers.
If you use natural flowers, make sure they are very fresh. Otherwise, the flowers won’t last for much time, and even sprinkling them with water won’t help.

Fake Flower Crown For Any OccasionSource: connieandlunastudio via Instagram
This model has a fake flower crown in her hair. The accessory consists of big white flowers with smaller peach flowers. How to make such an accessory with fake flowers? Follow the steps:
- Grab some floral wire, make it circular. Place it on your head to learn if that wire fits. It should be a bit loose. If there is any extra length, cut it off. Using floral tape, tape the shut of the circle.
- Pick the flowers and greens. It’s better to begin the crown with some nice greenery to cover the plain wire. This will be the basis for the crown. When the greenery is in place, use the floral tape to tape it to your accessory.
- Now add the flowers you have picked. Every flower must have the 3-inch stem or longer. If the stem turns out to be too long, you can always cut it off using wire cutters or scissors. With the floral tape that you have, attach every stem to the accessory. And spare no tape – the more you use, the sturdier the construction will be. Voila! The textured and pretty accessory is ready.
