It’s officially one of my favorite times of the year: fall!
Since we live in Florida, the fall season is basically nonexistent. The seasons don’t really change here. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a beautiful day with low humidity and a light breeze. Those are the days it feels like fall.
So we do other things to make it feel like fall. Like filling every room with fall decor and pumpkin scented candles. It’s okay, we’re used to it. That’s why when temperatures actually dip below 80 we jump at the chance to wear a cargo jacket and boots, maybe even a scarf.
This fall season I have been inspired to make a fall flower crown. They’re the perfect accessory for a day at the pumpkin patch or a fall festival. It’s super easy to make and you can get most of the materials at the Dollar Tree.
DIY Fall Flower Crowns
- Floral Tape
- Floral Wire
- Wire cutters or heavy duty scissors
- Fake fall flowers & greens
Using the floral wire, wrap it twice around your the crown of your head or whoever’s head that will be wearing it. Once it’s wrapped twice and feels like a good size, cut it and wrap the ends around each other, closing it. Now you have the beginning of your base.
Using the floral tape, take long strands of the tape and wrap the entire base.
Before you start adding greens and flowers, it helps to cut a handful of small pieces of wire.
At least 10 pieces about 5-4 inches long to start. Then gather up some of the flowers and pieces you want to use.
Start by adding your main flower, the signature flower that will stand out the most. I used a sunflower. Take one of the short pieces of wire and just wrap the flower stem and the wire together around the base. After you wrap it in the wire, then wrap a piece of floral tape around it to cover up the wire. This helps so the wire doesn’t show or poke your head when you’re wearing it.
Now you can add some green leaves behind the flower and repeat the process with the wire and the tape. I added some feathers and some more greens. It helps to build it up and layer from behind the main flower so it doesn’t draw too much focus away from it, it just accentuates. I also added another smaller flower and then wrapped it all up in the floral tape.

Remember, more flowers and tape will weigh it down. So I added some tape while I was adding flowers only to make sure the wire doesn’t show. Then at the end, I made sure it was all covered up cleanly.
Now you have a beautiful fall flower crown!

Love this!! Such a pretty and dainty take on a traditional oversized floral crown!
Love the idea of a Fall Flower crown to wear to various outdoor events (pumpkin patch photo op anyone?) or even a Fall Wedding for a bride. I know what you mean about the lack of fall weather, here in Houston we usually skip fall and go right to winter. Which is sad cause it’s my favorite time of the year, too. I’ll definitely try making one of these. Thanks for sharing, Christina!
Oh, I really love this. It is so perfect for Autumn and even a Halloween costume.
