Daisy Flower Crown Crochet Pattern

The first daisy chain I ever made didn't quite live up to my perfect 'Disney' fantasy. After investing over an hour making one, I realised that unfortunately there were more stems then squished flowers on my chain.
So yes, creating jewellery out of plants was and never will be my strongest suit, but do you know what is? Yep, that's right... Crochet!
So that being said, this Disney princess decided to crochet her own Daisy Flower Crown! I think it's one you will definitely want to pin for your spring and or summer wardrobe.

Now, taking the tapestry needle and yarn, sew the small flowers on top of the big flowers. You'll want to create enough flowers to cover the headband/crown. {Note: I had to create 13 flowers to cover my headband.}
After creating the flowers, take sewing needle and thread and sew a pearl in the middle of each flower.
Then sew all your completed flowers onto your headband/crown all around. Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
