What we did

  1. We used a piece of stripped willow to form the ring of the crown, offering it up to each child’s head to ensure the correct fit. Simply twisting it around itself to hold in place  autumn crowns eco kids crafts
  2. Layout twigs to go along the front edge creating a peak in the centre.autumn crowns eco kids crafts
  3. We attached using yarn oddment but natural cordage, ribbons or string would also work well. We tied the two together a square and diagonal lash.autumn crowns eco kids craftsautumn crowns eco kids crafts
  4. We then pushed the foraged feathers into the yarn along side the twigs.autumn crowns eco kids crafts
