During the last school hols, Ava and I got our creative on and made some pretty leafy-feathery-crown-thingies.
It came to mind as we came home from the market and I saw some green leafy vines hanging out over the driveway. I grabbed the secateurs and cut some lengths for Ava, Mum and I. So what next? There’s nothing to it really, so here goes:
Step 1: Find leafy-green-viney things in garden (or on your street in someone else’s garden, just don’t get caught stealing it!)
Step 2: Cut lengths long enough to fit around your head (allow a bit more for crossover so you can join it at the back)
Step 3: Using tape (we used pretty washi/MT tape to add some texture and colour), stick coloured feathers to the vine
Step 4: Stick pretty jewel stickers to the feathers
Step 5: Repeat steps 3-4 until you’re happy with the balance of feathers to vine
Step 6: Wrap around your head and measure where to join it. Take off your head and stick together with tape.
And voila! You’ve made a pretty leafy-feathery-crown thingy.
You could add any crafty bits n bobs, like real or fake flowers and leaves, pom poms, wool, – well anything really. Your only limit is your imagination.
Hope you enjoyed this easy-peasy crafty goodness.
PS – I just texted Mum to ask if she knew what the green-leafy-vine is and she tells me it’s wysteria.
