Whether you are an avid coachella fan, a boho-chic bride to be, or simply looking for the perfect finish to that perfect outfit, you have definitely considered rocking a flower crown at one point or another.

 

Flower crowns are the hottest go-to accessory nowadays, because, quite frankly, they’re stunning. With the power to make anyone feel like a total goddess, and ability to bring Snapchat filters to real life, it is no wonder they go all the way back to ancient Greece.

 

“A flower crown is what’s ‘in’ right now,” says Jesseline Gough, Marketing Coordinator at pickOntario. “Weddings, pride parades, maternity shoots, lunch with the gals, festivals— you can quite literally make a statement anywhere you go.”

 

Learn how to build your own beautiful flower crown by watching pickOntario’s 2-minute tutorial video, or following these easy steps:

 

What you’ll need: 

  • Ontario grown ivy
  • Florist wire
  • Scissors
  • Ontario grown bouquet, potted plants, flowers, bedding plants

 

Step 1: Have about 2 feet of Ontario grown ivy ready

Step 2: Level 1 inch of stem

Step 3: Wrap the wire around the top of the branch to secure it

Step 4: Wrap the wire around the flower stem several times

Step 5: Repeat wrapping with the remaining flowers

Step 6: Wrap in the same direction working down the branch and continue adding until you see the look you want

Step 6: Bring the ends together and wrap firmly

Step 7: Now, wear your crown like the queen you are!

Step 8: Snap some selfies, and share with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #pickOntario

 

“The best thing about this flawless accessory is that it never goes out of style,” adds Jesseline. “Some may think it’s only a spring or summer trend, but why not add some seasonal beauty by hosting a flower crown party this winter as well.”
