We've created a new fashion this fall around our yard with colors of nature that God has provided to us. All three of my children have been proud to wear their crowns of autumnal leaves and have asked begged to make them on several occasions. Here's how we made them:
I began by very loosely braiding three strands of raffia and then loosely tying it around a child's head.
Next, the kids gathered beautiful fall leaves of various types, sizes, and colors.
Then, they inserted leaves into the holes of the braided crown.
We placed the crown on their head complete with autumnal leaves.
Voilà! My children were adorning fall leaf crowns.
The great news is that the following day when they found that their leaves were dried out, they simply pulled out the old ones and inserted new ones--creating a completely new masterpiece and type of crown. J
