How To Make A Fairy Birthday Party Flower Crown | Pottery Barn Kids

Hi, I'm Kelli Ronci, and I'm a stylist with Pottery Barn Kids.
For our fairy party, we created these beautiful flower fairy crowns
for our girls to wear and also decorate at the party.
You want to prepare a crown base for them in advance, and then provide little buckets with
trim such as feather butterflies, paper flowers, and even maybe some fresh flowers,
so they can have fun decorating the crowns themselves.
To start off, you'll want to prepare your base with a twenty-one inch long piece of wire flower garland.
We found this at a local craft store, and what you want to do is overlap the ends by about three inches,
and then twist the wires together to form a ring.
Then, wrap these stray pieces in, and it's through doing this that you're creating these little gaps,
that the girls can then later poke their flowers into.
Once you have your crown base, you want to attach some ribbons.
Cut two thirty inch long, quarter inch ribbon pieces,
and then we also used this beautiful paper leaf ribbon, so you'll want to cut four pieces total,
Attach the satin ribbons first, fold them in half, and then place the loop under one edge,
and bring the end pieces through the loop,
and pull, and then do the same thing with the paper ribbon.
Now it's ready for your girls to decorate, which they can do by poking in the individual flowers, and butterflies,
into the little gaps in the wire, and twisting them around.
The girls can choose whatever flowers and butterflies they want
in order to personalize and truly make the crowns their very own.
