How to Make an Orchid Crown



First, make a loop at the end of your floral wire and twist it a few times to make a secure loop which you will use later to tie the crown ends together.  Then slide your first orchid onto the wire by passing the end of the wire through the open center of the blossom.

You will not need to puncture any petals which is why using orchids is such an easy and awesome trick for a floral crown. If you want to buy precut orchids, you can purchase leis and deconstruct them or you can cut them from the vines yourself. Once the first blossoms has been threaded, pierce the edges of two green leaves and slide them down to the base of the blossom.

Repeat these steps being sure that the leaves and orchids are all facing the same direction as you go.  Cut leaves as you need them.

Cut a piece of ribbon and loop it through the two wire loops to tie the ends of the crown together.

Tie the end either with a knot or a bow!  You decide!  If you would rather go without the ribbon altogether, when making the final wire loop, wind it through your first loop and then twist closed.  How to Make an Orchid Crown
