Throughout history, flower crowns have been a symbol of love, springtime, and celebration. This cardstock paper flower crown featuring daisies, poppies, forget-me-nots, clovers, apple blossoms, lavender, and leaf sprigs is a fanciful nod to the ancient tradition. In parts of Europe, the flower crown is traditionally worn by young women for protection, to signify the changing seasons, and to find true love.
We highly recommend a cutting machine for this intermediate craft’s tiny flowers and intricate detailing. To get started, download our tutorial below!
Wild and Free
We chose to craft this dainty floral crown in the bright colors of summer, but feel free to pick whatever works best for your theme. This lovely boho flower crown would be beautiful in any color palette. Worn to a baby or bridal shower, these paper wildflowers will stay forever fresh and can act as a charming keepsake. The flower selection we chose for this project follows our summer theme, but there are so many beautiful flowers to choose from. Take a look at our paper flower crown collection for more inspiration.
We’d love to see you crowned in this latest craft! Show us your paper flower crown on our crafters community or on Insta with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
