In agrarian societies, tied to the land and the seasons, flower crowns had great symbolic meaning.
Worn for practical and ceremonial reasons, they could illustrate status and accomplishment (Olympic olive wreaths). The language of flowers and herbs was well-known, with each carrying its own meaning (“There’s rosemary, that’s for remembering. Please remember, love. And there are pansies, they’re for thoughts,” says Ophelia in Hamlet.)

What’s especially cool about DIYing a flower crown? It is affordable and it looks fabulous. One of my favorite DIY websites shows how simple these cool crowns can be.
