DIY Leaf Crown

DIY Leaf Crown | The Merrythought Do you remember our fun floral crown from this summer? Well, obviously crowns are just the sweetest and I loved making that one so much that I decided to make one that’s more fall appropriate. The colors have been beautiful around here so I went out and scooped up some leaves and made myself a crown!

-Cut a piece of the floral wire that is long enough to go around your head and add a couple inches.
-Form it into a circular shape and twist the ends tightly around each other to secure.
-Select your first leaf and attach with floral tape. (It helps to lay out a plan of how you want the leaves to go on beforehand.) Continue adding leaves and wrapping the stems of the leaves until you get the look you want.

    Try modgepodge all over the fresh leaves before you assemble the crown to make it last.ReplyCancel
