How To Make A Flower Crown With Paper?
Flower hats are beautiful and whimsical and can be worn for any event. Making a beautiful paper flower cap is a creative activity that lets your imagination run wild.
Here are the steps you need to follow to make a beautiful paper flower hat.
- Craft paper with different colors
- Pair of scissors
- Flower tape
- A wire or a headband
Instructions To Make
If you want to cut the flowers by hand, print the paper designs in the size you want and use them to cut flowers from the colored cardstock. The flower pieces should be about 4 inches wide. The big petals on each flower should be about 2 inches wide, and the small petals should be about 1.5 inches wide. Each flower should have 5 big petals and 5 small petals.
For the leaves, cut out some green paper petals. Cut out yellow or similar-colored pieces that look like combs for the flowers’ centers.
Cut two white paper strips 11 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Put them together with glue to make a long strip. Then, wrap them around each other to create a ring and stick the ends together. Make sure this will fit on your head; if it doesn’t, add more paper. This is the base of the crown.
Make some flowers now! To make the big flower petals, split 5 big petals, 5 small petals, and one comb-shaped middle piece. Cut the ends of all the flowers out with the scissors in a slight curl. Next, pinch the other end together with your fingers to make a dip. To make a circle, use your glue gun to glue the petals together, overlapping a little on the dips so that the middle is closed all the way through and all the curls of the petals facing outward.
Please do the same steps for the smaller petals and then glue them right in the middle of the more giant petals, ensuring they are slightly off from the other layer.
Roll the comb piece up and glue the end to keep it together. Spread the details out with your fingers. Put this between the smaller flowers and glue it down. Now you should have one big flower! Do this again to make at least three more flowers in your desired style and color.
Take one more significant piece, one smaller piece, and a comb-shaped piece in the middle to make the flowers all one piece. Cut both one-piece flower pieces so that all their petals are curled similarly.
Cover the big piece with the flowers facing outward, and glue the ends together. Please do the same thing with the smaller amount and then glue it inside the bigger one so that the petals are slightly shifted from the other layer. The last step is to roll the comb piece again and glue it in the middle of the flower.
You should have cut some green paper into leaves with petals of different sizes. Like flower petals, curl them outward with the scissors.
After making a bunch of flowers, it’s time to put the crown together! First, glue the big flowers around the base of the crown so that they are about the same distance apart. You should start with four and glue them all to the peak on different sides.
Glue some leaves next to each big flower so that they face different directions. This will cover up the base’s space.
To make it more exciting and fill the space, glue the smaller flowers between the bigger ones at different angles. If you need to, add more leaves.

Before putting the flowers on, ensure the base (wire or headband) fits easily around your head.
