DIY: Make Your Own Beautiful Burning Man Flower Crown
Burning Man is such a fun way to express your style and creativity. During COVID times, we threw our own Mini Burn with a small group and each person hosted an event. One of the events was flower-crown making! You can find beautiful flower crowns to purchase on Etsy, but they can be a little pricy. With a little time and craftiness, you can create your own, and then it’s unique to your style and a fun DIY project.
In this post I’ll give you a rundown of the supplies you’ll need (subject to your own personal taste), and the steps and shopping links to create your own personalized sparkly gem.
Sleeping mask (easier than a headband because it has more room for your embellishments)
Artificial or dried flowers
Step 1: Choose your flowers & Embellishments
Choose an array of artificial or dried flowers to go on your crown. You can also add antlers and branches if you want to make it feel more more like a wood nymph, or wherever your creativity wants to take you.
Step 2: layout the flowers on your sleeping mask
Purchase a cheap sleeping mask, they have a good amount of space to glue your flowers onto and they already have a nice elastic strap attached to form the headband. Layout your array of artificial or dried flowers, twigs etc onto the sleeping mask to see how to want to arrange the flowers before you glue them on.
Step 3: Start Gluing!
Using the glue gun, carefully glue each piece onto the sleeping mask until it feels fluffy and full.
Step 4: Try it on
You’re now ready to wear your magnificent creation! Try it on and see if it feels done. See all the beautiful flower crowns our friends made below.
