The example we outline is a beginner’s level DIY for flower crowns and will not take more than 30 minutes of your time.
Things you will need:
- Grapevine Twine
- Parafilm Green
- Your choice of Artificial Flowers / Fresh Flowers
- Florist Wires
- Wire Cutter and Scissors
- Ribbon (optional)
Step by step:
Measure grapevine twine around head leaving an extra two inches on either end of twine
Twist the two ends of twine together to secure a circle overlapping the extra four inches
Select and arrange flowers around crown, be sure to use a variety of different size flowers and even some greenery. You can either arrange flowers all around the head or just the front of head.
Cut off flower stems leaving around an inch of stem for taping to the twine. Form a hook with a florist wire and secure it around the first flower stem. Repeat for each flower.
Start taping flowers one by one onto twine. Keep in mind to start at one end and work your way around.
It’s as easy as that!
Note: Parafilm Green (which is also known as floral tape) is not like normal tape, it does not have an adhesive side. Unlike normal tape, Parafilm adheres to itself, therefore you need to wrap it around a few times to keep it secure.
Optional: To add an extra flare, you can tie a ribbon at the back with a bow and leave around 10 cm of ribbon hanging.

For a simple bouquet, gather together artificial flowers and leaves of varying sizes in the colours that suit your theme. While holding the stems, re-arrange them in a way that shows their colours and textures and then securely wrap the bouquet in floral wire and floral tape. Add the finishing touch by tying a ribbon around the stems.
Any good bouquet or arrangement has some sort of greenery and foliage in it for a natural look, so consider including a few fake leaves in the bouquet. If you’re putting them in a glass vase, don’t bend the stems; cut them appropriately to allow them to sit in the way real flower stems would.
