Crafts: Daffodil Crown

Daffodil Crown

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Usher in Spring with a flowery fez that's blooming with blossoms.


  • Ruler and pencil
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Tape
  • Hole punch
  • Tissue paper
  • Construction paper
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Green paint


  1. Make a crown out of a strip of green construction paper, about 5 inches wide and 24 inches long, and tape the ends so it fits snugly on your child's head.
  2. Scallop the top edge with eight 3-inch half-circles, punch a hole in each one, and paint a daffodil stem below the hole.
  3. For each tissue-paper flower, stack eight 4-inch circles of tissue paper, fold them in half, and snip a small hole in the center. Push a green pipe cleaner stem through the hole and coil the end.
  4. Pull the top four circles up over the coil and crinkle them tightly around your finger. Snip four wedges out of the remaining circles to form the outer petals.
  5. Coil the stem at the base of the flower to hold the petals in place. Then, slip the stems into the holes of the crown.
