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)
*Floral Wire (We used straight 18 gauge wire)
*Pinking Shears (optional)
*Card Stock for Patterns
1. Follow these directions to make Flower Crowns. We omitted the ribbon for these light-weight crowns.
