From weddings to music festivals, flower crowns are everywhere these days. They’re the ultimate spring accessory and make even the rainiest of days that much brighter. Best of all, they’re totally easy to make yourself.

  • Heavy gauge floral wire
  • Green floral tape
  • Scissors or wire cutters
