DIY Holly Christmas Crown

Hello everyone!
Christmas is just a few days away and I can't wait!
It is my favorite holiday.
I thought it would be fun to add a Christmas twist to the popular spring floral crowns and bring them into winter.
And thus this holly crown was born!

You will need:
Floral Wire
Floral Tape
Wire Cutters

With the wire cutters, cut the holly leaves and berries from the stem, leaving an inch or two of stem at the bottom to wrap around.

With the floral wire, gently measure a crown around the intended wearer's head.
I like to wrap it around twice to create a thicker base to build on.

Cut the wire to size and wrap the ends around the crown wire to secure into place.
Wrap the exposed ends with floral tape.

Add the holly leaves to the crown one at a time by laying them flat against the wire and securing them into place around the stem with floral wire.
Wrap the exposed ends with floral tape to protect your scalp and hair!

Repeat until you have worked your way around the crown or have reached your desired coverage.
Add the berries to the crown with the same method.
I added my berries after every three holly leaves.
Fill in any bare areas with extra leaves or berries.
Wear and enjoy!

Floral crowns are much simpler to make than I originally thought and can be worn for so many different occasions!
I think my nieces would love to wear these holly crowns for all of our Christmas festivities.
I mean, who wouldn't?
What do you think of the floral crown trend?
Love it or hate it?

All my love,
