Leaf Crowns Kids Craft for Spring or Olympics

Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate the Olympics with your kids? Check out these Olympic wreath style leaf crowns! They are easy to make, and I have a solution if you don’t just happen to have the perfect vines growing in your back yard.

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! Since these crowns look like Olympic wreaths they also make a great Olympics-themed craft!

How to Make an Olympic Wreath Leaf Crown – Fun Olympics Craft for Kids

We happened to have a hanging vine growing in our yard that we knew would not cause any skin issues for our kids, but you can also buy artificial vines. Wrap around the crown of your child’s head a couple of times, and twist to keep in place. The leaves keep the Olympic wreat / leaf crown from unravelling.

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

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

    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!

  4. 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.
