A pretty floral hair comb is an understated alternative to the ever popular flower crown. They’re the perfect way to accessorise your outfit and will add a touch of elegance to any wedding attire or prom dress. Here, we show you how to make your own in 7 easy steps.

YOU WILL NEED 

  • 1 x Black Bacarra Rose
  • 2 x Cool Water Roses
  • 4 x Pink Spray Roses
  • 1 x Sprig of Amaranthus
  • 1 x Bunch of Green Hypericum Berries
  • Ivy Leaves
  • Wire Comb
  • Florist Tape
  • Scissors
  • Florist Wire

STEP 1

Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut the stems of the flowers and foliage to approximately 2 inches in length. Mount the flower heads onto florists wire by inserting a length of wire through the base of the flower head, just at the top of the stem.

STEP 2

Fold the wire in half and wrap one end around the stem to secure.

Expert Tip: Wrap a length of florist tape around the stem and wire to create a clean finish.

STEP 3

Repeat until all flower heads are mounted onto florist wire.

STEP 4

Begin to arrange the flowers into clusters, ensuring that flower colours, sizes and textures are balanced.

Expert Tip: Start the first cluster with a large black Bacarra rose in the centre, surrounded on each side by amaranthus and Cool Water roses. Add spray roses to fill in any gaps within the design.

STEP 5

When you are happy with the arrangement, wrap a length of florist tape around the stems to secure.

Expert Tip: You can add to the cluster by simply wrapping florist tape around more flower heads to secure the blooms together.

STEP 6

Attach sprigs of ivy leaves to frame the flowers, again by wrapping tape around the stems.

Expert Tip: The cluster of flower heads should sit in the middle of the comb to create a balanced design.

STEP 7

Securely attach the flower cluster to the comb by wrapping a length of thin florist wire around the stem and the teeth of the comb.
