HEY WOW I FORGOT TO DO THIS. So if you haven’t known, I won a flower crown from cuckoocrowns @ tumblr and I actually wear it around every once in awhile. So here’s a couple of pictures of me and a bunch of people from the internet iunno

Ahhh it looks so good! I love your shirt with it too!

Sorry it’s been quiet over here! Not much going on. I finally got my phone hooked up to my new computer and was able to get work in progress pictures from egophiliac’s Element of Harmony crown! It was a tough crown, but totally worth it. It turned out great!

I used references from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to get the right color for the flowers of the crown, but I had to construct the tiara base myself. I bent a wire base to shape around the ears and crown of the head, then doubled that a few times to make it strong and barely moveable. However, since this was a gift (and to be kept secret), I kept it pliable enough to shape to the head without problem including adding extra spacing on the ear forms. 

The hardest part of this was the “Star” flower. I constructed a straight wire, doubling it a few times before having to add 3-4 flowers to cover it. It had to be heavy enough to sit straight, but light enough to form on the crown and not bend it. It took about 7 tries to get right. 

Two minutes before shipping the crown out, I added the blue flowers seen in her picture HERE. Blue flowers are very hard to come by especially in Fall/Winter season. 

A specialty crown like this would cost around $30+. While it has less flowers, the construction takes a long time plus the out-of-season blue flowers cost a lot at high-end craft stores. 

Stay Tuned for some other important notices

I have a beautiful Element of Flowercrownpretty, you may all be jealous now.

…no but seriously I love this thing it is gorgeous and befitting of the prettiest of pretty princesses! it was made by Keiliy of cuckoocrowns (/plug) who some of you know as the cool Disney lady from the streams! (Keiliy can now tell me that I’m wearing it completely wrong and it’s actually supposed to be a cummerbund or something but for now it will stay on my head.)

I was also sent a birthday Tim by the two best princesses in all the land, but sadly he did not make the journey intact and arrived in a jumble of Timbits. :( …also he smells like chocolate for some reason. It may just be Tim’s natural fragrance.

tl;dr Winter and Keiliy are cool people, thank you guys for being so rad!

Pictures of how I made this to come, but this is my first tiara! Woo!

So it just so happens that I won a giveaway over at Cuckoo Crowns, and I won a wristlet! But then I got around to thinking, “man, this could just be a baby flower crown”. And so I stuck it on The Queen Bella. I think she likes it. She’s quite majestic about it too, like a true queen. :3
Thanks so much, Keiliy! :D We love it!!!

Looks like someone got their Flower Bracelet!! er I mean Flower Crown! Looks good Queen Bella!

I have edited the price of shipping on the ordering page. While the shipping costs still vary, estimated U.S. shipping is $7.00. International shipping varies depending on country. 

All finished on the giveaway winner’s crown! He requested a medium color palette with a focus on red (and sunset colors). It looks fuller in pictures from the large flowers I used. However, up close you can see bits of the base. It’s light-weight (maybe 2lbs?). There were about 7 leaves used in it. I think it looks stunning!

A medium crown like this would cost $15 before shipping as it uses in-season flowers, requires less flowers, and less wire. 

If you are interested in a crown like giveaway winner tako-owowo’s, then feel free to visit the crowns and ordering page for more information or shoot me an ask

Almost done!
