A Spring or Autumn Crown


At Foxglove Spires we have been enjoying the beautiful Spring Flowers blooming and to celebrate we decided to make a Flower Crown from Tissue paper.


If you are heading into Autumn you could use Autumn colours instead. 


We measure the top of a little princesses head and cut a strip of cardboard an extra 2cm longer and 4cm wide, then we stapled the ends together.


We laid 4 sheets of purple tissue paper on top of each other and drew around the rim of a saucer 10 times.  Then we cut the circles out.


Then we laid two sheets of pink paper on top of each other and drew around the rim of a smaller saucer 10 times.  Then we cut these circles out.


For each flower we placed 4 circles of purple tissue paper and two circles of pink on top of each other.  Folded in half and folded twice more. 


Carefully we made 4 cuts from the edge of the paper towards the centre, then sniped the edges.


Gently we unfolded the circles, separated them and then put a dab of glue between each layer.


Finally we pinched the bottom part of each flower and glued it onto the headband.


A beautiful crown of flowers to wear frolicking in the garden.


Suddenly there is a movement between the flowers;
Did I see a fairy?


Yes, come with me... look there..... do you see it?
A tiny flower fairy!!!!! 

  
Isn't she just beautiful.....
Maybe she thinks I am a fairy because of my beautiful flower crown.

Have a delightful weekend.
