paper and fabric flower crown

I made this lovely floral crown as part of my Frida Kahlo costume for Halloween. I went about it without having planned it out much but incorporating various elements, colors and shapes into the design. I used crepe paper, thick tissue paper, cotton fabric, wool felt balls and a few vintage and millinery flowers that I had around the house. It's hard to see all the flowers in this image. I attached them to a headband with hot glue and the flowers that were wired were wrapped around the headband.

A couple of the flowers are from tutorials but, mostly I just cut and designed them by folding and scrunching as I went along.

 I also embroidered a realistic heart to wear on my shirt.
