DIY Paper Floral Crown

Having twins, it is near impossible to get a photo of both of the girls smiling or even looking at the camera. So, I have learned to be very candid in taking photos of them. This year, it was my goal to get a photo {with both girls in it} that we could use for our holiday cards. Of course, I knew I was going to do a frosted photo card. We love doing frosted photo items when there is a perfect little detail to glitter, like a bow, a ruffle or something in a little girl's hair. We love making and using paper flowers, and we had made a ton of them over the holidays to adorn our packages with. So, with my frosted photo card in mind, we decided to create a paper flower floral crown for my girls to wear in their holiday photos. We were actually thrilled with the way it turned out and decided to share the DIY with you, because not only does it make a lovely photo prop but these would be darling on flower girls for a wedding or a beautiful take home gift to give after a princess or tea party! The DIY is really fairly simple and use could use a variety to colors to coordinate with your child's clothing or theme.

Card stock of your choice
Hot glue
Mini ornaments
Eye lash yarn {Martha Stewart makes a great one}
Plain ribbon wrapped headband {Can be found at your local craft store, or you can use a plastic one and wrap ribbon color of your choice around it}

To create the flowers, follow our easy tutorial here
For this particular crown, we used a larger flower and two slightly smaller flowers. 
Simply glue the completed flowers on your headband. When you glue them try to angle them slightly toward 
the front. They look pretty if they are framing the child's face.
