Flower Crown in Five Minutes

Not kidding here.  This sweet crown took around 5 minutes to make.  Want to know the secret?

 Spring 1117

Dollar Store Lei’s and Ribbon. Spring 1103

Not only is this a quickie craft but it’s also light on the wallet.  I ended up getting sheer ribbon because it more closely matched the flower leis.

Spring 1107

First give your Lei a little snip and adjust it to the size that will fit the recipients head.

Spring 1104

Tie a good old square knot.  Go ahead and save the petals for making even more crowns.

Spring 1105

Loop on 4-6 strands of your ribbon.  

Spring 1106

And Presto… You’ve created a very lovely flower crown for your little spring maiden to wear.

Spring 1114

Perfect for dancing round the May Pole.

Spring 1108

So simple in fact that my extremely craft challenged husband whipped these together for the girls with minimal instruction from me.

Spring 1118

Enjoy!

Had to make a trip to the dollar store after finding this today! So easy and quick! Turbed out so cute! I want to buy all different colors to mix and match the petals and make your fairy wings, and matching tutus!
