Fall Flower Crown Fit for a Graduate! | Flowers by Kelle B
I was blogging away one day when I got a call from a soon-to-be Texas Tech University graduate. Jaci was in need of a fall inspired flower crown for a photo shoot that was coming up. Could I help? YES, PLEASE! Although I’ve only done 3 of these flower crowns, I’ve loved every one I’d done and this one was inspired by my favorite season!
Because we wanted to be on the same page, Jaci asked that I send some pictures of the flowers I was thinking of using. So I decided to send her this idea board for inspiration.
I’m always trying to make things as simple as possible for clients and one of the things I told her I would do it make the crown adjustable so she could position it as low or high on her head as she liked. Here’s how I created the adjustable base.
I had the best of intentions to take step-by-step photos of the whole process, but once the glue gun came out, I got super excited and focused and never looked back!
Also, on projects like this, it is hard to have “rules” or steps, per say. Its more of an organic process, which I know drives you type A people nuts, but there it is! I just add and add until it feels done. A little flower here, a leaf there… and so on. I am always picking it up and looking at it from multiple angles to make sure it looks good on all sides.
When all was said and done, it did rather reminded me of mix between an Art Nouveau, Harvest Goddess painting and Maid Marian’s wedding crown from the most awesome movie (from my teenage years), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves! And these references are good things in my opinion! Besides, doesn’t everyone deserve to wear a crown at some point in their life? I certainly think so! At the end of the day, here is what I came up with! Hope this inspires you and prepares you for the cooler fall weather headed this way!
Happy Fall y’all!
