Flower crowns might seem intimidating to DIY, and as a Flower Pro, I usually wouldn’t recommend it. When blooms are involved it’s pretty important to know how to handle them properly and to choose varieties that are hearty enough to withstand a day or so without water. However, don’t be afraid to try this simple greenery crown, it looks earthy and naturally beautiful.    Here's what you need:  Thin wire headband Roll of floral tape Thin gauge floral wire A few branches of hearty foliage ( any eucalyptus or olive branch variety works perfectly)
