How to make a baby’s breath crown

How to make a baby's breath crownWe recently released some awesome lace for flower girls, so we’ve decided it’s time for us to show you how to make your own! This wedding started with these lovely lace flowers and we’ve been thinking about it ever since. For this tutorial, we wanted it to be simple with a rustic feel, but you can add as many decorations as you want to match your wedding theme. To give it a more vintage touch, you can put some lace on the bow instead of a jute cord. To dress them up you could add pearls or rhinestones in with the baby’s breath! Or for a less traditional crown you could opt for something more unusual than baby’s breath like spray roses or simple greenery. It could also be a great idea for the bride! The hardest part of making them is resisting the urge to take them wherever you go!

What you need: floral wire / ribbon / baby’s breath / clipper

How to make a baby's breath crown

The first step is to cut the pile of twigs to the same length. depending on how much you want your full crown, you should trim the longer twigs to get a less dense, wilder-looking crown. For a low-profile, denser crown, cut the twigs about half that length.

Start with a twig and secure the wire by wrapping it tightly around the stem.

Next, line up the stem of the second and third twig with the wired stem and gently wrap the stems together. Avoid wiring the twigs coming out of the stem to the base so that they can spread wirelessly. How to make a baby's breath crown

Try to keep the crown density constant by spacing the twigs evenly as you add them to the crown. When the thread runs out, start a new piece.

As you approach the end of the crown and approach the desired length, allow a few inches of smooth stem to remain at one end of the crown.

That way, when you fold the end towards the beginning, you won’t double the baby’s breathing and it will seem perfectly continuous.

Once the wreath is securely attached, you can leave it as is or carefully wrap the ribbon around the wreath. This will attract a few twigs to lower the profile of the canopy for a denser look.

If you’re using twine or ribbon, leave the extra length to hang behind the wreath. Also, if there are too long or bare twigs, it’s time to trim or add to the crown where you need them.

To add to the twine, we tied a white velvet ribbon on the back. We love the combination of velvet and twine together. We also like the idea of ​​leaving the extra long ribbons to follow the flower girls like veils!

Flower crowns are such a pretty way to incorporate flowers into your special event or photoshoot, and by using all the same flowers like baby’s breath, you’ll have a uniform look that is relatively easy to make. If you are using fresh baby’s breath, store the flower crown in your fridge before using it, if possible.

Read on to find out how to make a flower crown with your baby’s breath!

What You’ll Need: Baby’s Breath (About 4-5 stems depending on the size of baby’s breath you use. I used fresh but you could try with faux.), Thread of flowers, Floral Tape, Shears

How to make a baby's breath crown

Start by measuring around your head with floral wire to determine the size for your crown. Cut the wire a little larger than needed in order to fold the ends over to clasp together. Don’t worry if it feels flimsy, the weight of the flowers and tape you attach will make it sturdy!

How to make a baby's breath crown

After you have your wire form done, you’ll need to make some mini bundles with your baby’s breath. Gathering them in this way fills the wreath with flowers as the flowers themselves are so small. To make the mini bundles, snip the tops of baby’s breath and gather them together (they are like little boutonnieres), then wrap with ribbon with flowers. My flower crown took about 14.

How to make a baby's breath crown

Starting at the top center, securely attach your baby’s breath bundle to the wire form by wrapping with ribbon with flowers. Continue down, once done, repeat these steps on the other side, mirroring what you just did, top to bottom until finished.

When I made this flower crown, I wanted it to be beautiful and full. If you are looking for a thinner/airier look, simply use less pieces of baby’s breath in your mini bundles and space them out a little bit more.

I joined Pinterest about a year ago and created a secret board where you can find wedding inspiration. Most of the photos I pinned at the beginning showed wedding dresses and makeup. But as the wedding date drew closer, I started to take an interest in DIY tutorials, though I didn’t think I would have much time for DIY then.

Over time, when I had to plan a wedding, I decided to work hard to identify certain aspects of our marriage. As a rule, these items should be relevant to us as a couple and / or should be in our future home.

My first DIY project was this flower crown for our flower girls which didn’t really fit within the above principle. But I stumbled upon this tutorial on Pinterest and was able to picture it on my flower girls, so I had to give it a try!

Materials – floral wire, ribbon with flowers, & baby’s breath Mini-bouquets of baby’s breath Attempt #1

I thought my first try wasn’t too shabby (basically I was following the t-shirt tutorial), but the crown felt a bit thick and could overwhelm my little flower girls.

So for my second attempt – I managed to successfully dye some baby’s breath using food dye, which turned out really easy. Basically a 6: 1 ratio of water to food coloring was used and left overnight in the jar.

Coloring in progress – chaotic chaos!

Using both blue and white baby’s breath this time, I didn’t bother with making mini bouquets, and setting them aside to stick them to the floral wire after like I did earlier. Instead, I took about 2 mini-stalks of blue and white each, and would combine them together to wrap them around the floral wire using ribbon with flowers, and stuck them straight to the floral wire. It turned out much faster and the corona looked more ethereal than before.

Gave me approximately 2-3 mini-bouquets which I stuck straight to the floral wire

Being the typical OCD I’ve been in in these things, I’ve cut all the protruding strands like the one below.

Optional: Trim any protruding wires

And I also updated the crown with a ribbon! But it’s completely optional as the crown will still stay in shape.

Attempt n. 2

I also made a wrist bra for my bridesmaids, all in the same method (although I wish they were scruffy due to time constraints).

I’d say the first DIY project was a success, especially for a craft amateur like me!

I’ve never worried too much about a baby’s breath when accompanying a bouquet of roses, but I actually have a new respect for this particular perennial after noticing that many brides on Pinterest use a flower to accent their bridal hairstyles.
