MYO Paper Flower Crown

Make Your Own Flower Paper Crown MYO Donna Wilson_1

At the weekend, we spent the afternoon making these colourful flower crowns with the neighbourhood kids. We shared the finished Make Your Own on Instagram. Great for the summer parties! We had a few people ask for a step by step guide so here’s how we did it:

1.  Choose your colours we use coloured card, corrugated paper and tissue paper however you can recycle old newspapers and magazines you may have around the house. How about some of our funny wrapping paper. You will also need a pencil, masking tape and scissors.

2. Make the headband: Cut a strip of coloured card (or strong paper) that is long enough to fit around your head. Use masking tape to secure. I love this rainbow gradient card!

3. Make the flowers: We start with a square sheet of coloured paper (a similar method to making a snowflake). Fold the sheet in half, then fold it again. Using your scissors, you can start creating the shape of your flower. We made patterns by cutting arrows. It’s completely up to you how detailed you want it to look. Then repeat with another coloured sheet of paper. We scrunched up layers of tissue paper to make more flowers. There is the more the merrier!

4. Make the leaves: We used green corrugated paper to make our green leaf shapes. We made the buds using the same paper and used masking tape to secure to the flower petals.

5. Start to attach the flowers on the headband We used lots of masking tape to secure the flowers and the leaves. The flowers are inspired by my Snowflake placemats.

6. Now your crown is finished Show off your new creation!

You’ll find lots of fun ideas, inspirational makes and more in our new magazine MYO. Make Your Own! Our website is live now.
