July 15, 2013

Spotted on Tigers and Lilies, flower crowns fashioned by Lili Cuzor and fit for a queen (like you or me):

Photographs by Lili Cuzor.

Above: You can make a crown from wisps or woven stems or bouquets of tiny wildflowers. For step-by-step intstructions on the technique, see our recent post Flower Arranging 101: Learning to Make a Flower Crown Befitting a Faerie Queen.

Above: Photographer Lili Cuzor styled these crowns for a recent photo shoot for Oyster Magazine.

Above: The simpler the better. “So Game of Thrones, no?” says Cuzor.

Above: To make a flower crown, start with a proper frame. Don’t leave the stems too long. And go for a look that’s linear and wispy (instead of floppy). Read about these and other tips that Erin learned when she made a Faerie Flower Crown.

Above: Two red roses punctuate the greenery with color. For more of Cuzor’s work, see Tigers to Lilies.
