Floral fairy wreaths... tutorial and resources
If you're just too lazy (LOL) or you're in a hurry this is an ebay store called Kcfairy with cute and quite affordable ones, not to say I find them rather cheap for the detail they have

You can also check these others made by Art of wings (we covered it in a previous article), they're simpler but not because of that less cute.

One of my favourite places for this is our previously covered "Hairlooms" article. You can see an example of this wonderful crafted headpieces below. The site worth a visit if only to gather some ideas as they're simply gorgeous.

This is a picture of one I did myself for a photo shoot of my song "the long way". I used some fake branches and only brown, yellows and reds to provide an "autumn" look. I used wire to tie all the pieces to the tiara and after that I used ribbon and fabric straps to wrap and smooth the possible wire endings that could scratch my head and make it more comfortable or you can use the stem wrap floral tape too. I use fake faux flowers but you can try drying leaves and flowers and try to do the same, but they're more delicate if travelling. So yep, that one below is me with my attempt of an "autumn crown". I added too some matching golden and red beads with the wire aside from the leaves and flowers and sometimes I even add feathers (check this previous article to buy all sorts of feathers). Right now i'm working making a matching "leaf-mask" but that will come in an upcoming article.
Another recommended site is Avalon Fantasy
