Flower Crown

We are obsessed with flowers & crowns at {In Paper Dreams}, so we set out to make some flower crowns of our very own. And of course, we had to use our favourite material: paper!

You will need:

  • 3 sheets of cardstock (8.5×11) in colours of your choice 
  • A hairband
  • A printer
  • Craft knife or scissors
  • White glue
  • Small paint brush
  • A hot glue gun

The template comes in three pages, each with flowers of varying shape and size on them: page 1, page 2, page 3.

  1. Print the three template pages on your sheets of cardstock. 
  2. Use a craft knife or scissors to cut out the flowers.
  3. Layer different sized and coloured flowers to make multi-coloured flowers.  The circles on the template are meant to be the centre of your flowers. Curl the petals over the end of a pencil to add some dimension to the blooms.
  4. Use the paint brush to apply the white glue and stick the flowers together. You really don’t need a lot of glue!
  5. Be creative! Make flowers with different shape and colour combination. Use four colours. Or five! You don't need to use every single cutout in the template - in fact, there are probably too many for one crown - and you can even make your own shapes and sizes.  These templates are there to provide a starting point. 
  6. Affix the flowers to the hairband with hot glue.  If you want the flower crown to withstand a lot of wear and tear, you may need a stronger adhesive such as E-6000.
  7. You don't have to use a hairband - use this template to make beautifully embellished barrettes, brooches, or even a paper bouquet! 

Embrace the whimsy! Proudly wear your flower crown throughout your kingdom... er, home or town!
