This project came about after I got a new part time job working for a photography studio. The company has an actual studio location, but they also send out photographers to schools for school picture days. If you follow my Instagram page @emmachristinecreative, you’ve seen some of my stories about taking school pictures.
At elementary schools the photographers wear some kind of head piece, which is a fun way to get the kids’ attention. Instead of buying something, I decided to make mine, and naturally, my first thought involved large flowers.
This was my first time making a flower crown, so it was a fun experiment! And I got a good response after wearing it to work last week–the other photographers thought it was cute and the kids seemed the like it too!
I suppose this is my version of posting something costume related for the month of October. You could totally make something like this to compliment a costume for a princess, hippie, or fairy. You could add some antlers to it for a deer or other animal, or, go for a “darker” idea and add some skull makeup for a day of the dead look. I even saw a picture of a Frida Kahlo costume with a flower crown…the possibilities are endless!
