Birthday Crown


Historically I have not been crafty, so I am always pleasantly surprised when there is a craft project that I can actually do--especially with ease. When Zosia found out we were going to a birthday party, she was adamant that we make a birthday crown: you might remember hers (worn before her actual birthday, of course) from this summer, a gift from her dear Auntie Em.

And this project only required felt, embroidery thread, buttons, and ribbon. It took all of 15 minutes, and is definitely something that can be worn from year to year-- a sweet present for only a couple of dollars. If you really want to get fancy, you could even secure the crown with an elastic.

Oooh. I like it. Can you show me how you did it so I can make some for the twins?

Yup, I even have extra felt!

Can adults wear them as well?!

Adele said...

Not only can they, but they should!
