DIY FEATHER CROWN
Directions: 👑 Measure round your child’s head with a tape measure (one for sewing, not the metal kind!!). 👑 Use this measurement to cut a 5cm wide strip of thin card - REMEMBER to add a few centimetres for when you come to stick it together. This will be your headband. . 👑 Either using my picture as reference, or find a template online, draw a selection of different sized feathers onto some card - these will be your templates. . 👑 Use the templates to draw round onto lots of different coloured card. Then cut out. . 👑 Glue the feathers all along the headband. . 👑 Pop the feather crown onto your child’s head, overlap the two ends of the headband. Take it off and glue. . 👑 You can then add more feathers over the join. 👑 Voila! You got yourself a feather crown! Now let’s go party!*
