Magical Flower Fairy Craft


We love making crafts with our own kids, even better when it involves a little outdoor time. Hang this weaving on the wall, or stand it on a shelf to adorn your little ones room with natural beauty and fresh floral scents. 

 

To create this pretty flower weaving, you will need:

- A crown fit for a woodland flower fairy 

- Packaging from one of our cowns

- Scissors

- Cotton String

- Fresh flowers

 

Step 1: 

Gather your materials. Walk through a nearby park, forest, or field and you are sure to find some wild flowers or greenery. 

 

Step 2: 

Cut the top of the crown box so that you only have the back and side walls left. Then cut slits into two opposite sides about 2 cm apart. This can vary depending on how tight of a weave you'd like it to be. For very delicate flowers, space 3-4 cm apart.Then wind your string back and forth.

Step 3: 

Start weaving the flowers through the strings, under over, under over, until you reach the end. Alternate starting under or over each time. 

 

Step 4:

That was easy! You are done and ready to display your masterpiece!
