Crown of Petals

My niece Colie and I where given these beautiful blooms as a gift and decided to have some fun with them!

We started with some thin craft wire, a pair of scissors, and a handful of blooms. I cut the wire to the desired length (in this case, the diameter of her little melon), bent the end so that the blooms would not slide off once strung and handed it over so she could build it herself.

Busy as a little bee Colie finished the crown and after I twisted the metal ends together, she was ready to make some more pieces! I had so much fun and so did she. A great project option for those cold days inside:)
