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!

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.
