Mad Hatter Tea Party Crafts


PARTY CRAFTS:






Fantastic Foam Crowns:


Materials:
  • 30cm x 30cm (12in. x 12in.) piece of flexible foam, Small pieces of cardboard
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Foam Scraps
  • Project glue
  • Colored markers


Instructions:

  1. Measure around the crown of your head with a piece of string. Cut the string to that length.
  2. Arrange the string in a circle on a 30cm x 30cm (12in. x 12in.) piece of foam.
  3. Trace the string circle onto the foam. This guarantees that your new crown will fit perfectly!
  4. Next, find the center point of the circle that you have just drawn. Draw 12 lines (radii) from the center point of the circle to the circle's edge. These lines should be evenly space around the circle.
  5. Cut along these radiating lines, stopping at the point where the line touches the circle's edge.
  6. Draw a large circle around the first circle that you originally drew - about 3cm (1 in.) larger all the way around. Cut out the second, larger circle. You have a wearable crown at this point!
  7. For a finishing touch use the colored markers to color and decorate your crown. Use the scrap foam to cut out jewel-shapes and glue them on each point.
