I bought my little fake flowers from my local home-ware store.

step 1 in the process

Wrapping the flower around the head band

Step 1- start by placing a single flower in the centre of the Alice Band. Twist the stem of the flower around the head band making sure it is secure, then snip off the end of the stem. Make sure to push the end of the stem against the Alice band as close as possible (you don’t want any wires scratching your head).

May look a bit messy, but wait, have patience!

This is what the flower crown will look like from underneath. It may seem like a bit of a tangled birds nest, but fear not! It will be covered up and look fab on your pretty head! Just keep going and make sure you cover the top of the Alice band and adjust the flowers so that you can’t see the stems of the flowers peeking out.

    What a lovely idea. I will like to use fresh baby roses instead. Would I use florist wire or tape to attach them to the alice band. Pls help. Thanks

      Hi Tash,

      Florist wire or tape will both work well. I used thin florist wire to secure my flowers, just make sure that you cut the ends of the wires close and push them sort of under the flower if you can, just so that you don’t have wires poking you in the head. Don’t want that happening!
