It’s no surprise that I love a good flower crown for dogs or people. Although they are a little more bohemian than my go-to style, if you have spent enough time on Pinterest in the last year, you can’t help but love them! When I saw that a local florist was hosting a flower crown workshop I signed up tout suite! The class was hosted by Stephanie of The Blue Daisy Floral Designs. Stephanie gave a great tutorial and helped us all through the process. She also had a beautiful assortment of flowers and willow branches for us to use. (Scroll to the bottom of this post for tips on how to make your own flower crown for dogs or people).
I wore my completed crown out on the town right after the workshop, but naturally I had more plans for my plants… and it involved the dogs! I returned to one of my favorite photo destinations (Mellon Park in Pittsburgh) and captured some gorgeous photos of Lola and Lucy. Lola really got to shine in this photoshoot since she can sit still for longer, while Lucy constantly tried to knock the crown off.
TIPS TO MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER CROWN FOR DOGS:
If you want to make your own flower crown, it’s fairly simple, but it takes time. Mine took about 90 minutes to make! You need floral wire and lots of floral tape.
- Wrap a length of wire (long enough to fit around you head) with floral tape.Then you make a whole bunch of tiny little bunch of flowers. Each of mine had 3 different flowers or branches. I used about 15 little bunches to create my crown.
- Once you have all of them made, you attach them one at a time to the taped wire with more floral tape. Make sure each bunch overlaps the one before so you don’t have gaps.
You can be as complicated or a simple as you want, but keep in mind that the more flowers you have the heavier it will be. Once you have a fabulous flower crown ready, you’ll want to throw a puppy party with some delicious pupcakes for your friends.
