Spurred by my love for Frida Kahlo and her amazing life and personal style, I decided to get some friends together to create DIY Kahlo inspired flower crowns.
These turned out far better than I anticipated and I'm so happy with them. As it's almost christmas time, these could even be a great christmas gift for someone as they have a really polished look when they're finished and are so wearable.
The flower crowns I made included the piece with the classic black roses and pink accents, as well as the crown with the blue flowers and the army men, which I adore as it gives quite a conventional piece a really unique twist and contrasts the pretty aesthetic of the flowers against the hard, plastic army men to give it a whole different vibe. (Also shout out to the sister for modelling that piece for me).
The orange flower crown with the fern leaf was made by my friend Silva (who is an incredible singer, so make sure to check out her youtube channel). It has an aesthetic that for me is really reminiscent of the beautifully colourful Carmen Miranda headpieces.
The last crown was made by Ben, who simply twisted two strands of flowers around each other to create a very ethereal, Midsummer Night's Dream-esque headpiece. Its actually almost identical to the one in this picture of Stevie Nicks that I later found.
I'm honestly amazed at the array of different pieces and aesthetics that can be created when making flower crowns. Below are some pictures of pieces that I love, and some pictures for inspiration if any of you decide to make some yourselves.
