DIY – A Simple Spring Flower Crown
21 March 2017
Springtime calls for a celebration and to make your own flower crown is the perfect way to do so. This paper flower crown is about as easy as it gets. My daughter and Love to make flower crowns in the summer, but as there are no flowers in our garden yet, this is a wonderful way to let spring into our home.
– Coloured construction paper;
– pencils if you wanna draw the flowers before cutting them;
– glue ( I prefered a glue gun, but my kids use a glue stick);
– staple gun.
We began with cutting out a very long strip of construction paper about 3 centimeters wide. It should wrap around the child’s head. We Stapled it together with a staple gun.
Cut different shapes of flowers in different sizes and colors. You can use any colors – we suggest to let the kids choose their own colors – it makes it more fun. Cut a smaller one to put in the center of the flower. We used around 10 flower depending on the sizes. If you want to you can also add green leaves.
We did not make a flower stencil and it lead us to talk about how flowers are shaped – their texture, colors and even their scent.
Glue each flower on the long strip that will fit on the head and voila – a flower crown is made to celebrate the beginning of spring.
I am… Mie. I live in Denmark with my husband and my three children age 9, 6 and 4. Creativity has always been a part of my life. After I had my third child, I experienced a challenging period with lots of stress – I stopped working for two years and decided to commit 100% to being a mama. I realized that my children would grow up so fast that I wanted to slow down and take my time to create the best conditions for a creative and healthy childhood. In that period I found that being creative with my children helped me to slow down, it reduced my stress and empowered me – and it still does. Besides being a mama I work part time as a mental health consultant – I am an occupational therapist, who has specialized in children, young people and families. You can find me at instagram and see more projects that we do in our family.
