Quick and Easy Silk Flower Crowns
Making flower crowns is a great project for summer festivals, camps, and other group activities. This craft has its origins in many European cultures, where flower crowns, garlands, and wreaths are used to decorate for midsummer celebrations.
Wire cutters strong enough to cut floral stems

Making the crown
1. Wrap wire around the head to measure it, then twist the wire ends together to form a circle.
2. Lay the first flower stem against the wire circle.
3. Stretching the floral tape to make it sticky, wrap closely around the stem and the wire, pinching to secure.
4. Keep adding flowers until the design is done.
