DIY flower crown

It’s QVC’s Garden Day on 9th May 2021! Taking place across 24 hours, this very special event is a celebration of gardening on your screen, where you’ll be able to join in, celebrate with us, and grab yourself a bargain on plants, garden furniture, decor and more!

To help you get in the mood, I’ve created a tutorial that you can try with some simple gardening equipment and – yes – real flowers! It’s a handmade take on the flower crown, and you can get as creative as you like with it, utilising your favourite flowers, as well as different colours and textures.

How to make a real flower crown

1. Cut any new growth from the body of your twigs to leave a couple of long, clean twigs.

2. Wrap the twigs around each other to form a circle. Secure in place with the florist wire (make sure there aren’t any piece of wire sticking out – or they could poke into your scalp!)

3. Cut your flowers, leaving around three to four inches of stem. Weave each flower through the twigs and secure in place with florist wire.
