Do you plant a garden in the Spring? Maybe a bed of flowers? We planted some sunflowers last year and had a fun time watching them grow. This year, we haven’t planted anything but were inspired by all of the colorful flowers we’ve seen popping up and made a flower pot crown!

How to make a Flower Pot Hat from Cardboard
Make the Flower Pot from Cardboard
Step 1: Cut a strip of cardboard long enough to wrap around your little one’s head. Remove and staple the ends together.
Step 2: Cut a second strip, approximately 3 inches in height and long enough to fit around the crown.
Step 3: Glue the smaller strip around the top of the crown.
Step 4: Paint the flower pot and allow it to dry.
Prepare the flowers
Step 5: From cardboard, cut strips that will become flower stems. Paint green and allow to dry.
Step 6: Cut circles from textured cardboard. Paint and allow to dry.
Step 7: Cut strips of colored cardstock. Fold strip so both ends meet and glue the ends together.
Step 8: Continue Step 7 and glue the cardstock pieces to the textured circles, creating flowers.
Finishing of your flower pot crown
Step 9: Glue the flowers to the stems.
Step 10: Glue the stems to the front inside of the flower pot.
A fun and simple way to celebrate all of the beautiful colors of Spring!
