DIY Flower Crowns for Your Puppy

Pit bulls tend to get a bad rap in popular culture, usually being portrayed as ferocious and aggressive beasts. Sophie Gamand, a U.S.-based French photographer, has set out to change all that by photographing pitbulls posed with beautiful hippie flower crowns.

Her photo series, entitled, “Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution,” aims to show the sweeter side of these oft-misunderstood animals.

The models in Gamand’s photos are just a few of the dogs looking for homes at three rescue groups in New York. The proceeds from photo print sales will go to these shelters as well!

Inspired by Sophie Gamand, you can make your very own Flower Crown for your dog.

Step 1. Measure your dog’s head with a shoe lace, string or measuring tape.

Step 2. Create a circle with Floral Wire

Step 3. Fold the wire in half and twist each end so that you have a loop.
Step 4. Trim the flowers and wind the wire around the stems.  Secure the stems with a little piece of floral tape.
Step 5. Once you have all your flowers placed and taped to the wire, tie a piece of ribbon to each loop.  The ribbon doesn’t have to be that long – just long enough to tie the crown around your dog’s head or neck.
You can put it above or below the ears to secure it
