How to make a Paper Flower Crown

Step 1: Color Flowers

Grab our free flower and leaf printable and color with your desired coloring supplies. Cut out a long piece of green or brown card stock. Our strip was 1 1/2 inches wide by 12 inches long. Punch a hole on each end of the green card stock strip.

Step 3: Assemble your crown.

Glue your flowers and leaves to your long strip of paper. Be sure you don’t cover the hold punched holes completely so that you can still thread a piece of ribbon through it. Feel free to glue on as many leaves as you want or none at all 🙂 We loved how it looked with a few leaves in between some of our flowers.

Step 4: Add the ribbon

String a piece of ribbon through both ends of your strip of paper. Before cutting your ribbon measure it around your child’s head to make sure both ribbon pieces and tie around their head.

Crafty Tips:

  • Print your flowers on a heavier card stock for durability. While regular copy paper will work in a pinch the heavier card stock holds up better to color utensils like markers and will fit nicer on your child’s head.
  • Add a hole punch reinforcement circle if needed for kids that are a little “rough” on their projects. You can also add a layer of tape to the end of your card stock before punching a hole for added strength.
  • Feel free to color with markers, crayons, colored pencils or even watercolors for a fun summer activity!
  • Use this craft in conjunction with a unit on flowers or gardening for a fun interactive homeschool or classroom hands on lesson!
