Crochet Flower Crown DIY

You will need:

- Enough 1/2" braided elastic to fit around your head, mine is black.
- Crochet thread- mine is Aunt Lydia's Size 3 in red.
- A small crochet hook - mine is an E.
- A needle and thread (with thread color matching your crochet thread color).

Make 7 of these flowers.

Ch 4. Join in a loop with a sl st.
Foundation Row 1: Ch 1. 9 Sc into the center of the loop. Join with sl st.
Petal Row 1: Working in front loops only of previous row, (Ch 2, 3 Dc into next stitch, Ch 2 and sl st into next stitch) 5 times around the circle.
Foundation Row 2: Working in the back loops of Foundation row 1 behind the petal row, (sl st into the same stitch where there are 3 Dc in the front loop, ch 2) 5 times. Join with a sl st.
Petal Row 2: (Ch 2, 3 Dc into ch-2 space, Ch 2 and sl st into the sl st of previous row) 5 times.
Cut and bind off and weave in ends.

Measure the elastic around your head and cut it. Use your needle and thread to sew the ends together. Sew the 7 flowers on over the overlapping elastic. Sew the flowers on a bit closer together than you would like so there is room for the elastic to stretch and TA DA! You have made a super cute Flower Crown Headband! If you want it to be even more crown like you can add even more flowers!

Email me at with any questions and happy stitching!!!

And PS... how psyched am I that today is the shortest day of the year and then they start getting longer again... so I can take a photo at 5:30 in the evening and have it not turn out as poorly as these! <3 YIPPEE! And thanks to Toro for giving me some kisses while I was photo posing! Good dog.
