Instructions!

STEP 1
Measure your head size by wrapping the coiled wire around the location on which you would wear the crown. Fasten the ends by twisting the wires around each other. Continue wrapping the wire around itself until the headband has been reinforced all the way around. Cut the coiled wire with floral wire cutters.
STEP 2
Cut a piece of felt approximately 4″ x 5″. Lay the felt under the area of the headband that twists together and has the cut ends.
STEP 3
Fold the felt over the headband and hot glue the felt to the wrapped wire.
STEP 4
Cut the felt into a half oval. This will be the crown base in which to glue on the succulents.
STEP 5
Cut small sections off of the Frost Dusty Miller stem with a floral wire cutter.
STEP 6
Hot glue the stem sections of Dusty Miller to the base of the felt crown.
STEP 7
Cut focal succulent head from the pick and hot glue it to the felt crown overlapping some of the Dusty Miller.
TIP: Choosing a variety of textured succulents and colors allows for a more interesting crown.
STEP 8
Cut off the floral heads from the Peony stem and hot glue them to the felt crown. Make sure to place the flowers close to the focal succulent and slightly overlap the leaves.
STEP 9
Cut off the succulent buds from the Sedum assortment and hot glue them into the crevices of the crown’s arrangement.
STEP 10
Cut off all the buds from the mini succulent pick. Continue to build the crown by hot gluing these onto the crown arrangement.
STEP 11
Continue to build the crown to your liking and wear in either front facing, to the side or to the back of your head, allowing the hair to drape around the floral.
