How sweet is this felt midsummer crown that Krista designed? The flowers are easy to construct, and then it is only a matter of arranging them onto your wire crown how you like (or you can read our crafting tip below for guidance).
Because of the amount of flowers and leaves needed to make a lush crown, we recommend using a cutting machine to assist you.
Our felt midsummer crown is made up of Swedish summer wildflowers, such as cornflowers, daisies, forget-me-nots, and purple wildflowers. Wear it for a special event, family photos, or just because you want to! All of the felt colors we used are linked below, but you can always use whatever colors you prefer for your felt flowers and greenery.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tips: When arranging your flowers, we find it best to start with spacing out the larger flowers, then the smaller, before filling in the rest of the crown with plenty of greens. You can also make a few individual stems for a wildflower arrangement for your summer festivities.

How to Make a Felt Midsummer Crown
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to pattern using a Cricut Maker (recommended) or scissors. The amounts shown in the PDF were enough to fill our whole crown, but you may want to cut extra leaves as needed.
- To make forget-me-nots: Cut 24-gauge floral wire into 4-inch long pieces and bend the ends into a small coil shape. Snip a small hole in the middle of the flower pieces, and slide the wire in. Glue the coil to the top.
- Cover the coiled wire with a small yellow circle of felt. Draw a dot in the middle with a brown art marker.

This crown is stunning. Thank you for sharing.
My computer downloads this as a zip but when I click on it, I am not able to extract the file and it opens as a svg but not accepted by Design Space Not sure what I am doing wrong…I have never had any issue with files from this site, Any help will be appreciated.
Hi Stephanie! It’s working fine on our end– can you email a few screenshots to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can try to help? Would be good to see what the file looks like downloaded, when it’s unzipped, and the error message in Design Space.
This is amazing. Thank you so much.
This is absolutely gorgeous! My heart skipped a beat when I opened June’s collection and saw this flower crown. It felt serendipitous to see the cornflowers… One of my friend’s favorite flower is cornflower and I had spent the last couple weeks looking for a pattern/tutorial to make crepe paper cornflowers. I am so excited I can make it out of Lia’s luscious felt! By the way, are there any updates regarding felt swatch chart?…
Since cornflowers bloom in July-August, will your team consider creating a crepe paper version as well? It’s seems as a fussy flower to make out of crepe paper, but I am sure you guys will come up with some tricks to make it look awesome.
As always, thank you for all the joy you bring to my life.
Ohh this makes me so happy! I’m so glad our timing was right 🙂 We’ll add the crepe paper version to our idea list. The felt swatch will be posted soon, we just have to confirm a few colors that may be discontinued.
