This custom is echoed today by the holiday attire. You can join in the fun by making your own fresh flower crown and wearing white during your Shavuot celebration.

To Make Your Own Flower Crown
Measure your head with the string.
Cut the florist wire to your size.
Place it around your head and twist your crown shut when the size is right.
Place a flower on the wire and wrap some florist tape around the stem and wire to secure it.
Repeat this process until your crown is covered by flowers.
