Spring is in the air, and with it comes the return of the flowers. Nothing says spring like a garden full of those lovely scented blooms. It’s also a time for gorgeous flower-inspired crafts for springtime fashion and weddings. In fact, flower accessories are perfect for springtime parties, wedding outfits, and romantic dates. If you want to adorn yourself or someone else with flowers, here are three perfect wearable DIY crafts you can get started on right now.
1. Flower Crown
Flower crowns are perfect for flower girls and even bridesmaids at weddings. They lend an ethereal look to the whole event, almost as if the bride were being attended by a party of good fairies.

Supplies needed include: floral tape, floral wire, fresh flowers, and scissors. Watch this online tutorial to create your own!
2. Flower Bracelet
A simple flower bracelet is a lovely accessory for a spring dress at both casual and formal parties, and it’s easy to make. These aren’t large, overpowering corsages like you wore to your high school prom. These are smaller and much more elegant.
To make flower bracelets, you’ll need: small colorful flowers, green ribbon, floral tape, floral wire, a hot glue gun, a glue sticks.

The flower possibilities for this project are almost endless. If you need inspiration, try looking at some of the floral arrangements from FTD.com. First, choose one flower to be the focus of the bracelet. Cut the stem of this flower short and wrap it with floral tape. Wrap green ribbon around the floral tape and hot glue it in place. Then, glue the flower to the top of the ribbon.
Add two or three smaller flowers of the same or complimenting colors to either end of the focal flower and glue them in place on top of the ribbon. Wait for the glue to dry, make sure the flowers are secure, and tie the ribbon around your wrist with the focal flower on top.
3. Flower Shoe Clip
The flower shoe clip is the perfect accessory for a romantic date. It is super easy to make, too!
You’ll need a pair of old clip-on earrings, two identical flowers of your liking, a hot glue gun, and two small circles of felt.

First, pull the clips off of the earrings. Then, hot glue a circle of felt to the side of each clip that will be on the inside of your shoes. This prevents the clip from rubbing against your foot inside the shoe and giving you a blister. Next, cut off the stems of the flowers. Hot glue a flower blossom to the top of each clip. Once the glue is dry and the flowers are secure, attach a clip to the top of each shoe, just over the toes. This works on closed-toe as well as semi-open toe shoes. Fabric flowers also work well with this craft, but real flowers are prettier and look more feminine. Check out some examples on GreenWeddingShoes.com.
