Today I have yet another fun craft, a Fancy Stick Crown, from our favorite book – Stick Man!

We started off our project with reading , by Julia Donaldson. While brainstorming for a project and picking the brains of my little ones, we came across Kirsten Rickert and her BEAUTIFUL . Well, although I’m a sewer by trade, I wanted to make this even more simple for you and involve the kiddos in the process a little more .

We then went for a long walk behind our house on the search for sticks, or small twigs. V&T each brought their rulers to find sticks that were around an 8 to 10-inch range in length. They gathered A TON!

We even had a momentary lesson on camouflage when we spotted a gorgeous brown & green praying mantis who was very friendly and stayed a long while for the kiddos to watch him and his movements and ask me questions. They named him “pretty V T heart” – an amazing moniker if I do say so myself ;)

- a strip of long enough to wrap around your child’s head

- Start by laying out your muslin strip and placing the sticks down in the order that they’ll fit, or how you’d like them arranged Make sure they are spaced enough apart to allow another one in the next layer to go between.

- Once design is laid out, start gluing down the sticks about half way down the muslin strip.

- Glue about 15 to 16 inches of sticks down , in the center, of the length of muslin.

- Fold over muslin strip width-wise encasing the newly glued sticks. Glue the muslin strip in place.

- On top of the muslin strip, place more sticks in the spaces between the sticks below. Glue them down.

- Add optional decorative ribbon on top of the sticks. Let cool.

- Wrap and around your child’s head & let their imaginations run free!

There are dragons to be slayed, queens to be crowned, castles to be lived in – the skies the limit with their imaginations!

We would love for you to come join us in all the fun!!!
