How to Decorate a Graduation Cap with a DIY Flower Crown

May 15, 2015

From music festivals to spring picnics, floral crowns are one of the hottest trends this year. Now, you can take this popular hair accessory and incorporate it into your graduation attire with a few simple steps!

We found that using fresh flowers versus artificial flowers works best here as fresh flowers not only stand out but also add an intoxicating scent to your attire. The flowers used here come from the Floral Embrace bouquet from the 1800Flowers.com graduation flowers collection.

Take your spool of floral wire, and wrap the wire twice around the rim of the graduation cap. Cut the piece off, and wrap the ends of the floral wire around the frame shape to secure.

Take your flowers and remove most of the stem, leaving about 2-3 inches. Align your flowers on the crown as you would like them to look when finalized, and wrap the floral tape around the stems and the tape to secure.

Slip the DIY floral crown over the graduation cap. The crown should hold steadily, but if you wish to ensure it is secured, you may choose to glue the crown to the cap.
