My girls love wearing any type of crowns or wreaths on their heads so when my eldest asked me if I could make one I remembered the ones we use to make when I was a kid.
Pretty simple if you have coloured paper and coloured crepe paper and of course a stapler.
Materials for one wreath:
- 2 x coloured A4 sheet – light blue
- 1/2 meter of red crepe paper
- 10 staples
Steps to follow:
- Fold the A4 sheets length wise first in two and then again.
- Staple the two sheets together so they can form a round. Make sure it fits your child head though. You might need to adjust the length depending on your child’s age.
- Cut little squares out of the crepe paper and put them on top of each other. I use about 10 for each flower.
- Staple them on the round paper making sure that you staple them exactly in the middle of the squares.
- Repeat the process until you have an acceptable amount of “flowers”.
- Using the scissors cut around the flowers so they have round edges rather than square.You could cut the papers round from the beginning but I am not that good at crafting to do all that. :).
- After cutting them round also cut the crepe paper length wise at the ends so that it creates a frill effect.
- Using your hand bring together the leaves so that it looks more like a flower.
Tip: Never throw out the scraps of paper. Put them in little plastic bags as they can always be used for other crafts.
