You can pay hundreds of dollars to pay for a gold wreath or you can pick some greenery from your garden do this super easy DIY yourself. It’s the perfect dash of gold to your wedding ensemble. It’s part Roman, part angel and all beautiful.
You will need: wire thin enough to shape easily to the head, wire cutters, greenery clipped from the garden, gold spray paint, straw floral tape
Step 1: Spray paint your leaves at least 24 hours before you intend on making the crown.
Step 2: Measure the wire against your model and cut it to the right length, leaving about 3 extra inches.
Step 3: Form the wire into a circle and wrap the extra inches around to secure it.
Step 4: Break the leaves into 2 1/2″ segments.
Step 5: Take your first segment and floral tape it against the wire.
Step 6: Take the next segment of leaves and overlap it with the previous segment and floral tape it onto the wire.
Step 7: Repeat until you get to the end and overlap it with the beginning.
Voila! That’s it. You’re done! So easy, right?!
