Craft Ideas For Kids - Nature-Inspired Summer Crowns
Summer Craft Project For Kids 3 - Nature-Inspired Flower Crowns.
Recently I had an image on Instagram - a hectic morning photo of my son and I trying to make a flower crown before school for his midsummer festival.
Many of you asked how to make one. It's an easy and super fun summer craft that the whole family can get involved in.
Adapt it to include leaves, vines, feathers. We also made a tribal stick crown which my son loves wearing while running around the garden, roaring with his whittled spear.
See how that was made in the Tribal Crown Blog below.
You will need: raffia, flowers & scissors
1 - Gather a bunch of raffia, approximately 3-4cm in diameter; tie a knot at one end.
2 - Plait the raffia, making a cord about 53cm long, tie the ends together to create a ring.
3 - Either make a thin delicate crown or thicker depending on how much raffia you use and the look you are after.
4 - Thread your flowers through the raffia plait.
5 - Use lots of colours, textures, lengths and size of flowers to create a wild, beautiful abundant summer crown.
6 - Trim the stems of your flowers.
7 - Finished Flower Crown.
We experimented with using the same colour combinations by making a simple nasturtium crown.
