Leaf crowns

Johnny with his leaf crown
Mike fashioned crowns for all three kids out of a climbing vine that was trying to take over our gutter pipe. This simple DIY nature craft was easy to make and inspired all sorts of fun pretend play for the kids!

Custom leaf crowns

Emma especially enjoyed pretending to be a tiny fairy running and dancing around our yard.

She is now campaigning for me to purchase some pretend ivy to turn into indoor leaf crowns…

    Great idea, and very nicely executed! Emma looks lovely dancing with her fairy crown, and Johnny looks ready to be the dashing hero in some Robin Hood adventure. :)

    We have vines running everywhere (except where I want them to go), so I will definitely keep this idea in mind next time I prune!

    This is awesome. I loved the last picture! This crown would look so beautiful in Halloween costume.

    Fun! Love the kneesocks with the short dress–that’s adorable. I need to get my girls some more kneesocks.

    Sounds like Mike has been doing some yard work in his time off:-)! We need some of that around here–TLC for our yard! I have always wanted to make some sort of crown like this. These turned out great. I love the picture of Emma–so sweet and fun!! All three kids look adorable with their crowns.

    I hope y’all have been enjoying your time together this week.
