DIY Halloween Flower Crown

I’m probably the worst at craft projects aka diy. But this flower crown that I made was the easiest ever, trust me. Grab some flowers and the below tools to rock a diy flower crown if you’re going as a flower child, fairy or anything boho and magical for Halloween.

What You’ll Need

  • Green wire
  • Flower tape
  • Strong scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Flowers (real or faux)

 

Step 1) Make Crown

  • Take two pieces of wire and twist them slightly together to make half the circumference of the flower crown
  • Repeat for the other half of the wire crown section while measuring on the circumference of your head
  • Seal the ends and connect the two halves of the wire crown together using the flower tape

Step 2) Assemble Flower Sections

  • This is the fun part!
  • Take small sections of the flowers and make mini bouquets making sure the stems are about 4” in length
  • Make the bouquets by gathering the flowers around small pieces of wire and tightly secure the stems around the pieces of wire with  flower tape

Step 2) Attach Flowers to Crown

  • Attach the mini flower bouquets to the wire flower crown using small pieces of wire for heavier or larger bouquets or tape for light weight and smaller ones
  • Once all are attached go in and make sure all are secure and wire or tape down any that are loose or sticking up

DIY Halloween Costume: Office Cat

I don’t know about you, but I live for wearing my Halloween costume on the actual holiday. Did you know that Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year? I think there’s nothing more fun than wearing a Halloween costume to work. Here’s a cute and super easy cat costume that can be worn to the office or any party where you might not have too much time to put together an over the top Halloween costume. Here’s how I achieved it:

Cat Ears

I attempted to make cat ears, but they didn’t quite turn out so great. Sigh. But my plan B was to wear two little mini hair buns where my cat ears would have been. I simply twisted two sections of my hair and twisted them to make these buns. I think it would be so cute to add a little glitter or hair paint to these as well.

Eye Make Up

I rarely leave the house without cat eye eyeliner. I will admit that it took me a while to learn how to apply. The good thing is that you can draw a cat eye in several different styles. Pick the one that’s easiest for you. You can also skip the eye liner and achieve the cat eye look with eye shadow.

Nose & Whiskers

These really make the costume. I used a black eye liner pencil to draw in the dot on my nose and the fun whiskers. It took just a few minutes and I felt totally transformed into a kitty cat!

Off The Shoulder (or better known as OTS) has been taking over the fashion world for a few seasons now. We saw it last summer and now it’s back… to stay! With celebs like RiRi rocking the look, you know we all have to try it. My favorite is the OTS Button Down. It takes the classic button down (which never goes out of style) and makes it sexy.
