STEP 1: Grab 2 long flower & stem and tie it tight together with the wire.
Pay attention to where the flowers fall, make sure the spacing is close enough without over lapping too much,
but far not enough to not create any gaps.
You can cut the wire piece 2-4 inches long. Wrap it around to secure your flowers

STEP 2: About an inch away from where the last flower ends, grab a new flower and continue the chain.
Secure it together with your first piece by wrapping them together with more wire.

STEP 3: Continue to add more flowers and stems to the length.
Once in awhile hold your crown up to your head to see how much more length you need.
(If it gets too long cut off the extra stem.)

STEP 4: finish the crown and secure the halo shape with your wire,
by connecting the end with the beginning flower area.

Cut some shorter flower stems and put them off to the side. You will need them for the next step.

STEP 5: Use the smaller flower stems to fill in the gaps in your crown.
Use the wire to wrap the flower stems into your crown.
