Daffodil & Pom-Pom Crown

You will need:

Dark green felt sheets A4 x2

Light green felt sheets A4 x2

Yellow felt sheet A4

Orange felt sheet A4

Glitter green felt sheet A4

A3 card

Pom-poms

Pencil/Pen

Scissors

Glue/Hot glue gun

Directions:

To make the crown:

  1. Draw and cut a grass stem design on two dark green felt sheets and two light green felt sheets.

  2. Line the dark green felt sheets together to make one long design. Glue together in the middle. This will be the main part of the crown.

  3. Cut a long strip from card and glue onto the crown to stabilize it whilst on the head.

  4. Now glue the light green grass stem design onto the inside of the crown, slightly higher to give the crown a two-tone effect.

  5. To finish, glue the two ends together, to form the crown headband.

To make the daffodils:

  1. Draw and cut two sets of petals from yellow felt. For this you will need to create a three-edged petal design.

  2. Take one set and add a line of glue down the centre of each petal, using your fingers, pinch the centre of the felt onto the glue to create a 3D effect.

  3. Glue the two sets of petals together with glue.

  4. Draw and cut a small rectangle from orange felt, with a wavy top edge.

  5. Glue each end together to create a circle. This is the centre of the daffodil.

  6. Glue the orange centre to the middle of the yellow petals.

  7. Draw and cut two leaves from the glitter green felt. Glue onto the back of the daffodil.

To decorate the crown:

  1. Glue the daffodils and pom-poms onto front and back of the crown.

Bunny Feet Bonnet

You will need:

Plain hat or bonnet

Toy stuffing

Pink, white and green craft foam

Faux flowers

Glitter eggs​

Glue or hot glue gun

Directions:

  1. Cover the centre of the bonnet with toy stuffing to create the rabbit’s bottom half and glue into place.

  2. Add an extra piece of toy stuffing to create the rabbit’s tail.

  3. Draw and cut a grass stem design from green craft foam, long enough to wrap around the rabbit’s body.

  4. Glue the grass stem around the body and secure in place with glue.

  5. Draw and cut two rabbit feet from white craft foam.

  6. Draw and cut the details (such as the soles and toes) of the feet from pink craft foam and glue onto the white feet.

  7. Glue the finished feet onto the front of the bonnet. (This should now look like the rabbit is jumping into the grass hole).

  8. On the rim of the bonnet, add a selection of faux flowers and glitter eggs.
