How to Make a Baby’s Breath Flower Crown

Flower crowns are such a pretty way to incorporate flowers into your special event or photoshoot, and by using all the same flowers like baby’s breath, you’ll have a uniform look that is relatively easy to make. If you are using fresh baby’s breath, store the flower crown in your fridge before using it, if possible.

What You’ll Need: Baby’s Breath (About 4-5 stems depending on the size of baby’s breath you use. I used fresh but you could try with faux.), Floral Wire, Floral Tape, Scissors

Start by measuring around your head with floral wire to determine the size for your crown. Cut the wire a little larger than needed in order to fold the ends over to clasp together. Don’t worry if it feels flimsy, the weight of the flowers and tape you attach will make it sturdy!

After you have your wire form done, you’ll need to make some mini bundles with your baby’s breath. Gathering them like this makes the flower crown full since the flowers by themselves are so small by themselves. To make the mini bundles, snip the tops of baby’s breath and gather them together (they are like little boutonnieres), then wrap with floral tape. My flower crown took about 14 of these.

Starting at the top center, securely attach your baby’s breath bundle to the wire form by wrapping with floral tape. Continue down the side, when finished repeat these steps on the other side mirroring what you just did, from top to bottom until finished.

When I made this flower crown I wanted it to be nice and full. If you are looking for a thinner/airier look, simply use less pieces of baby’s breath in your mini bundles and space them out a little bit more.

      Hi Indria,

      I’ve never tried it with artificial baby’s breath, but can’t see why it wouldn’t work that way. I’d still use the same technique to put it together. Let me know how it works out for you!
