Make Your Own Flower Crown with pickOntario
Whether you are an avid coachella fan, a boho-chic bride to be, or simply looking for the perfect finish to that perfect outfit, you have definitely considered rocking a flower crown at one point or another.
Flower crowns are the hottest go-to accessory nowadays, because, quite frankly, they’re stunning. With the power to make anyone feel like a total goddess, and ability to bring Snapchat filters to real life, it is no wonder they go all the way back to ancient Greece.
“A flower crown is what’s ‘in’ right now,” says Jesseline Gough, Marketing Coordinator at pickOntario. “Weddings, pride parades, maternity shoots, lunch with the gals, festivals— you can quite literally make a statement anywhere you go.”
Learn how to build your own beautiful flower crown by watching pickOntario’s 2-minute tutorial video, or following these easy steps:
What you’ll need:

Step 4: Wrap the wire around the flower stem several times
Step 5: Repeat wrapping with the remaining flowers
Step 6: Wrap in the same direction working down the branch and continue adding until you see the look you want
Step 6: Bring the ends together and wrap firmly
Step 7: Now, wear your crown like the queen you are!

“The best thing about this flawless accessory is that it never goes out of style,” adds Jesseline. “Some may think it’s only a spring or summer trend, but why not add some seasonal beauty by hosting a flower crown party this winter as well.”
