The beauty of this instructable is it is totally free, you don't need any other supplies but flowers, and it's just tricky and unique enough that you will stand out as amazing. Little girls just freak out when you make these, just be prepared that if you make one in a crowd, you will have tons of puppy dog eyes begging you to make more.

Step 1: What Do I Need?
Step 2: How Do I Start the Braid?
Start with three flowers and begin to braid them leaving the flower heads at different lengths. the heads normally keep the braid from unravelleling at the top. As you approach the end of a stem (or anytime you want to add more flowers) just lay a new flower into the braid and run the old and new stem through the braid together until the old stem runs out. You can trim the stems with your finger nails but I suggest at least three turns or braids of overlap. You don't want it falling apart too easy.

Step 3: Can I Make It Even Better?
Step 4: When Do I Stop?
the length you are going to make this depends on whether it is a necklace or a crown and the size of the head it goes on. I just eye it up.
Step 5: How Do I Stop?
This is the trickiest part, but once you have done it 2 or 3 times it is easy. You need to take the stem ends you have and weave them into the starting end of the crown. Pick one stem at a time and follow one of the stems at the start, tucking it through all the holes the starting stem goes through. When done right, you will not be able to tell where the splice is.
Step 6: Now What Do I Do With It?
The whole process takes about 10 minutes. The smiles last the rest of the day.
