Leaf Nature Crowns for Kids
1. Green leaf crown. Twist and tangle vines to make them into this stunning leaf crown, fit for any little prince or princess.
2. Paper and leaf nature crown. This simple nature crown gets kids outside searching for glorious leaves and then adding them to a paper crown. So simple, yet so pretty!
3. Autumn leaf print crown. I love this twist on a regular leaf crown. It’s perfect if you have plenty of time to create something extra special with paint.
4. Origami leaf crown. This leaf crown does take a little more effort to make but it has WOW factor. It’s one of the prettiest nature crowns we’ve ever made!
5. Woven nature crown. This tutorial explains two ways to make this spectacular leaf crown. Woven or sewn. Either way, it’s stunning.
6. Leaf crown with a feather. Isn’t this lovely? Add a little feather in the middle for extra whimsy!
Flower Nature Crowns for kids
8. Pretty flower crown. I’m not usually a fan of silk flowers. I always opt for real flowers if given the choice, but some people would like to make a crown that could be used over and over again. So, I couldn’t help but add it to this list.
9. Flower Chain crown. How glorious is this dandelion chain crown? It makes me want to pick dandelions right this instant, except its 9 pm at night!
I might try my own version tomorrow. I can imagine my children and I sitting on the grass weaving these together.
10. Simple flower crown. This sweet crown is made of real flowers. Its beauty comes from its simplicity.
Other Nature Crowns for Kids
11. Fern crowns. I tried this last week with great results. Cut two lovely big fronds and tie the big stems together. Then, simply bring the fronds around your child’s head and gently twist the pinnas (the little leaves) together. So easy!
12. Berry Crown. This crown is gorgeous. The berries give the crown such a pretty texture and they look lovely sitting on top of a little head.
13. Shell crown. If you’ve been to the beach lately and collected some shells, you might have enough to make your own shell crown, just like this one.
14. Stick crown. Sticks are readily available and that’s why making a stick crown is a great idea. No need to hunt very far for your materials. This particular crown reminds me a little of the Disney movie Frozen. I’m certain Kristoff would have worn one just like it.
15. Feather Crown. This one I sewed together in a matter of minutes. I used some fur material and added a tiny bit of elastic to the back. Then, I sewed the feathers on by hand. Jaz looks so wild here. I love it.
16. Paperbark crown. If you live in Australia and have some beautiful melaleuca (paperbark) trees where you live, grab some strips of bark off the ground. These paperbark crowns are simple and so easy to make with the kids. Haven’t my girls grown up?!
17. Gumnut crown. This isn’t a DIY crown but I had to share it anyway. Sometimes, all we need is the visual to help replicate our own little magical crown just like it. If you make one yourself, I’d love to share it.
18. Acorn crown. I had to search for this one. I really thought there would be so many wonderful acorn crowns to share but unfortunately, there wasn’t. This one is very nice though.
My challenge to you is to make one and share it with me. I’d love to add yours here too.
You might be feeling a little overwhelmed with all these beautiful choices. You can make all these nature crowns yourself but I’d encourage you to make your own versions too!
We’ve tried several nature crowns and I’d say we’re not finished just yet.
