Flower Hair Wreath DIY
Did you ever make the little daisy chain necklaces when you were a kid? One thing I've been wanting to do with my kids for a long time is make flower hair wreaths out of wild flowers and flowers that I grow in my garden. I thought it would be fun to go on a flower hunt with the girlies, so we did the other day and came up with these darling Flower Hair Wreaths. I think they'd be an awesome craft for a summer birthday party or get-together with friends. Here's how you can make your own!
Flower Hair Wreath DIY
These cute flower hair wreaths are not that hard to make and don't require any special equipment. If you can find flowers (either wild or from the yard or garden) and have a pair of scissors - you've got everything you need.
Like any good project for kids, this fun craft is best if the kids are able to take ownership of it! A big part of making our flower hair wreaths was of course finding and picking the flowers.
Luckily out here in the country, wildflowers are pretty easy to find. We just ran out our front door and down to the ditches. The little girls had a great time picking flowers.
Flower Hair Wreath Supplies
These are the supplies we used, but the beauty of this project is that you can use any flowers you have in your area!
- Queen Anne's Lace (we loved these not only for the look and abundance in our ditches, but also for the long, sturdy stems - they made an excellent base flower upon which to attach the other flowers)
- Clover flowers
- Miniature daisies
- Small sunflowers
- Jars to store the flowers (my girls had a great time separating the flowers into jars and don't they look pretty!)
How to make Flower Hair Wreaths:
- Making the wreath is seriously easy, friends. Simply use your nails or the scissors to split a little hole in the stem
- And insert a flower. Continue making holes and inserting flowers into stems until you have a chain long enough to fit around the target head. If one stem becomes too short, just attach a longer stemmed flower and then continue using the new stem as your base.
- Use the scissors to cut down the extra long stems that aren't part of the base.
- Finally put the wreath on!
Getting the wreath closed so it would stay around a head was the trickiest part, but it also wasn't too hard. I either tied the two stems together, or put them through each other using the hole technique we used to make the wreath in the first place. And let me tell you, little girls were completely thrilled with the end result.
How do you think would have more fun with these wreaths? You or your kids? And what sort of flowers would you use?
