Step 1: Lay out all your supplies. Then take two to three pieces of piping and twist the ends together to make an extra-long piece.

Step 2: Measure the piping around your head. If too small, add more. Twist the two ends together to create a circle. Depending on how high you want the flower crown to sit on your head, that's the area where you should measure it.

Step 4: Start cutting the flowers off. Keep about two to three inches of the stem, so you can secure it to the piping.

Step 5: Place the flower in the desired direction on the crown — putting a few larger flowers toward the front of the crown. To secure the flower take one of the cut pieces of piping and twist it around the flower stem and the crown piping tightly. Continue until the crown is completely full and there are no spaces or holes between flowers.
