Make It: Ethereal Spring Wedding Crown

It’s Kentucky Derby week and, while we missed out on opening day of the races, yesterday we shared our festive Lemon Mint Derby Julep in honor. And what’s better than enjoying cocktails with decorating head pieces? Not much, if you ask us! If you’re celebrating the Kentucky Derby recreate those beautifully lush winner’s circle wreaths with our easy Winner’s Circle Eucalyptus Crown and polish off with your own blue-and-white ribbon and pin!

fresh eucalyptus {most floral markets and even grocery stores carry this in bunches || floral wire or a pre-made wire wreath form || floral tape || clippers || ribbon and an adornment like a vintage pin

Step 1. take your wire frame and make sure it will sit atop a head like a crown comfortably.

Step 2. secure the ends of two eucalyptus sprigs with floral tape to the wire. Continue securing with small pieces as you make your way around the crown, adding more eucalyptus as you go.

Step 3. once you’ve achieved maximum eucalyptus density take a wide ribbon and wrap around the back of the crown, securing with a vintage pin.

It’s really that easy! These would also be adorable for sweet little flower girls to wear at summer weddings, don’t you think?
