With the help of my adorable girlfriends we easily made three of those in little under an hour. Baby's breath flowers is a great addition to any wedding because it’s easy to arrange, is an affordable flower, and looks effortlessly elegant, rustic, and feminine all at once.

HOW TO MAKE A BABY'S BREATH CROWN
Step 1. Make a base
Measure the circumference of girl's head and using wire make a circle. Trim it with clippers when ready. Wrap the wire around few times for the stronger base.
Step 2. Wrap the base with flower tape
This step is optional but it will give the crown more polished look and makes it more secure. You can work around with a floral tape in a circle or wrap the crown with smaller sections.
Step 3. Trip the stems to a needed length
Trim the stems to approximately same length. Depending on how full you want the crown you should either clip longer sprigs for a less dense, more wild look or a denser crown, clip sprigs about an inch.
Step 4. Bunch buds together
Put together as many buds as you like , lay each bunch horizontally along crown base, and tape the stems as you work your way around the crown. Continue adding bunches and taping them down until you’ve reached the original starting point.
Step 5. Add some other flowers or greenery (optional)
That's it! Your elegant baby's breath crown for a flower girl is ready.
My beautiful flower girl 🙂
