I hope you all had a good weekend, and a great Easter if you celebrated.  We are back at home after a lovely weekend in New Hampshire. We got to visit with family, hunt for eggs in the snow and eat lots of good food.  The girls loved their Easter treats.  I made up some extra flowers when I was working on their Apple Surprise Balls and used them to make flower crowns for their baskets.  These lightweight crowns make a nice alternative to party hats for birthdays and are inexpensive to create.  To make your own Paper Flower Crown you will need:

*How to Make Crepe Paper Flowers book (We have the 1922 version)

*Variety of Crepe Paper (We used this 100 gms paper from Papermart, and each flower used less than one roll of paper)

*Thin Headband

*Floral Tape

*Floral Wire (We used straight 18 gauge wire)

*Craft Glue


*Pinking Shears (optional)

*Card Stock for Patterns

1. Follow these directions to make Flower Crowns.  We omitted the ribbon for these light-weight crowns.
