The Floral Headdresses Beyonce and Rihanna wore on Vogue this month were made out of real flowers and were so over the top they were more like a floral sculptures than a headdress.
You’ll need a slightly scaled down version in order to wear the headdress in daily life, that doesn’t mean it will be any less dramatic. And by using faux flowers instead of real ones, you can wear the headdress for years.
Here are resources to “Get Their Look For Less.”
Option 1 D.I.Y. by watching Youtube.
These headdresses are elaborate but actually are pretty easy to make. All you need is a headband, glue gun and For additional drama use styrofoam blocks to give the flowers on the headdress additional height.

Option 2 – Take a headdress workshop
If you need a little one on one instruction to make yours and want someone else to source the materials, take a headdress class that is offered by a florist or at DIY creative space.
In the San Francisco Bay Area (cue the song, if you are going to San Francisco wear some flowers in your hair) a Headdress Workshop is offered twice a month at Mannequin Madness. It is held at Mannequin Madness because they have lots of mannequin heads for you to practice on.
If you aren’t crafty or don’t have the time to make your own, buy one on Etsy. Not only are they hand made, but some vendors will even customize their headdress for your tastes.
There are a gazillion vendors selling floral crowns on Etsy, but we like these vendors because whose style is more over the top.
Note since these items are one of a kind, the product in the photo may be sold out, which is why we included the shop name.
