DIY Paper Poppy Flowers
We made these beautiful paper poppy flowers for the girls to wear for Midsummer. Traditionally you have real flowers for your headbands but this year I wanted to make headbands that last longer. So they can wear them, both for their Kindergarten Midsummer celebration and for Midsummer night eve…. and even more times after that! The idea came from Creative Karin who has a you tube channel where you can see a full tutorial how they are made. Check it out! You do not need a lot of stuff and it is really quick and easy! https://kreativakarin.com
You will need:
- Tissue paper or crepe paper
- Thin metal wire or pipe cleaners
- Start with 4 sheets of pink paper (6x10cm) and one black sheet (4x10cm)
- Cut slices along the edges of the black paper
- Fold all the papers together with the black part facing out
- Twist the metal wire around the center and cut the edges round
- Unfold your flower sheet by sheet
- Fasten with the wire to the headband
- Repeat as many as you like!
Ella loves poppies but she knows they easily break, so she won’t pick them. But they are beautiful to look at.
Ready for midsummer!
