STEP 1: Separate all the individual flowers from the stems and leaves.

STEP 2: Work the wired stems into a circular shape using your hands and the wire cutters as needed. This will be the base for your crown.

STEP 3: Wind floral wire all around the crown base you created in Step 2 giving yourself ample slack as you work.

STEP 4: Pull at a section of the wire to create a large loop (this is why you need some slack in the wire from Step 3).

STEP 5: Work the base of the individual flowers into the loop, and then tighten.

STEP 6: Repeat Steps 4 & 5 until you have filled the entire crown or to your own desired taste.
