(Disclosure: I partnered with FityFlowers.com and USFamilyGuide.com to receive the flowers featured below for the purpose of this post. No other compensation was received and all opinions are 100% my own!)
As a parent I'm always finding myself doing crafts and fun art projects with my children, especially my daughter, she's always coming home from school asking to create something new. I'm not the craftiest person in the world by any means, but I'm all for giving diy projects a try! So when I found out FiftyFlowers.com was going to send us beautiful wholesale flowers for our next project, I was so excited, I couldn't wait for them to arrive!

On the day my Varsity Blues DIY Combo Pack arrived, I unboxed everything and I placed all of the stems in water and started thinking about our next craft! A fresh flower crown seemed like the perfect idea, I knew Little Sister C would love it and honestly I had never made one before!
For a flower crown you will need scissors, covered wire, floral tape and fresh cut flowers - the ones I received from FiftyFlowers.com are absolutely perfect for this project! First, you'll need to measure how much wire to cut, I didn't want the crowns to be tight but to rest on our heads loosely. Using the wire, make a circle and connect the ends of each crown with floral tape.
Next, you'll pick out which fresh flowers your going to use and how many, cut a few inches off of each stem. Adding one flower at a time, use the floral tape to wrap it onto each crown. You can add as many flowers as you'd like, I only did the front of the crown but I love the way they turned out!
I had this craft project completed in under 30 minutes, my daughter was so surprised when she came home from school and I showed her our matching fresh flower crowns! Little Sister C wore her flower crown for days, she didn't want to take it off at all!
