Hey there! I'm going to get all blogger talk with you all for a moment because this week is a big and crazy one for me, blogger life speaking. I am attending this exciting three day blogging conference called Altitude Summit or Alt for short. You can read more about it here.
 
Getting everything together and being prepared has been a really big part of my last few weeks. I can't believe its here and I couldn't be more excited, nervous, curious, and anxious. It's going to be an amazing experience!
 
Part of preparing for this conference has included figuring out my wardrobe and self presentation and I half the stuff I'm wearing is like out of a dream. I am so excited to take pictures and blog about what I wore. Someone pinch me!
 
 Well since you've taken time to stop by and read my ramblings, I'll let you in on a little secret. We are going to be rebranding! Shhh... keep it on the D.L., ok? So our new logo will be coming out soon and our new site in a few months! Don't worry. The flower will still be present, but just tweaked a bit. Oh, I am so excited.
 
To finish off my looks for Alt I am going to be sporting some flowers to properly represent The Mumsy Blog. I mean our blog has a huge flower on it and the new logo will too! And while I was busy making the floral crowns, which are thankfully still super trendy, I decided to share them with you and how easy and frugal they are to make and that is how this post was born. Bam! I'm going to walk you through how to make all three of these beauties. I figured they might be fun to make for Valentines Day.

Easy Floral Crown Ideas

 
 Large Floral Crown with Roses
 
What you need:
 
  • Two stems of roses in different colors. I chose pink and white.
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks
  • thick headband
  • any additional embellishments such as baby's breath or butterflies
 
How to make it:
 
The Headband 
  1. Take off all the leaves from the stems.
  2. Cut the tips of the plastic off.
  3. Separate about eight of the leaves if they are in sections as pictured on the top right.
  4. Hot glue the leaves on the headband to cover and create a natural look. Continue all the way around until the headband is covered as pictured in the picture on the bottom right.

 ( Large Floral Crown with Roses Continued) Adding the Roses
 

  1. Pull off the roses from the stems.
  2. Clip off the plastic piece on the bottom as pictured on the top left.
  3. Hot glue the roses to the head band starting in the middle. Angle the roses slightly so they will not stick completely upward.
  4. Continue around the headband until about four inches to the end or wherever you desire. It may be a good idea to try to try the headband on as you go to get an idea of how it is turning out.
  5. Cover the back of the roses which will be seen behind you when wearing the crown, with leaves as pictured on the bottom left.
  6. Remove any excess hot glue.
  7. And enjoy!
