DIY: Floral Crown

So, a while back I had plans to make a floral garland for little Rosie's room. 
I thought it out quite well (or so I thought?) envisioning a whimsical garland
 full of colorful blooms, hanging in her special room.
I finally found the time to get the supplies and test out the best method to make a garland that would hold up, but also look beautiful. Well....... it definitely worked. It turned out to be just as sturdy as I had hoped and equally beautiful. It just took foreverrrrrrrrrrrr to make. I was about 1/4 of the way through when I decided I didn't have the patience to make an entire garland,
so it became a beautiful floral crown for my beautiful babe instead.
You will need: silk flowers, thin floral wire, and hot glue.
I found most of these at the dollar store, and some at Michaels crafts. 
Remove the flowers from the stems like pictured below.
Pinch the wire together creating a little loop like- bend. 
Dab the top of the loop with a tiny bit of hot glue.
Place flowers on the loop like so.
This was super easy and it is great because you can bend/place the garland exactly how you'd like.
 My little Rosebud!
It only lasted a few minutes of course!
