Make a Flower Chain Crown

Yesterday afternoon, the boys were playing King and Knight of New Hampshire. (Of course, Colin declared himself King and requested a crown!) Owen gave him a bucket to wear on his head and we laughed, and laughed, and laughed, as there really is nothing sillier than a King wearing a Bucket Crown! As the boys played, I sat down in the grass and noticed that the abundant growth of Dandelions, Wild Violets, and Forget-Me-Nots did make our yard look rather kingdomly and lovely. Did I remember how to make Flower Chain Crowns?

I sure did! Colin cheered when I placed a golden Dandelion Crown on his head and sat down to take his place on a stone throne.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial so that you can learn how to make a Flower Chain Crown for the little King or Queen in your life!

Directions:

1. Collect flowers with long stems (Daises and Dandelions work very well). Place two flowers side by side.

2. Loop the stem of the second flower underneath the first flower’s stem.

3. Bring the stem of the second flower around the front and back of the first flower’s head.

4. If desired, weave other flowers through the dandelions to create a Queen’s Crown!
