If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with the kids this summer that gets you outside, would be easy to do over and over again and is all around low-maintenance then you’ve come to the right place! I was planning on making these simple floral crowns for a midsummer celebration, but it didn’t workout so instead I brought all the supplies over to our friend’s house (they’re renovating an old farm!) and asked Tilly and Londan to help me put together a tutorial.
Details and supply list below!
Kid’s ages will defiantly determine how much hands-on help they’ll need. Regardless though there are enough kid-friendly steps to make it fun for all ages and would be a great activity at a party or playdate too!
For reference before you start ordering all the things, the girls are 10 years old and were able to make their crowns with very little help.
SIMPLE FLORAL CROWN
- wire wrapped twine
- green floral tape
- scissors (to cut flowers and twine/tape)
- flowers (wild, from a yard or store-bought — we used wild daisies)
- Measure head with wire twine and double it (so the wire will go around their heads twice). Add an extra inch or so to the length and cut. Fold wire twine in half and twist, leaving a loop on the folded end. Shape into a crown/circle.
- Collect and/or trim flowers, leaving at least a couple inches of the stems.
- Cut approx. 12-inches of floral tape. Starting a couple inches to the left of your folded/looped end, start arranging flowers, wrapping and securing their stems using the floral tape as you continue to layer until half of your wire crown is covered with flowers.
- Trim flower stems as needed and secure onto head!
Aren’t these friends cute in their little crowns!?
Can’t wait to make more… maybe at Poppy’s birthday party later this summer!
