Blooming Fun: Craft A Dinky Dinkum Flower Hat
We teamed up with @liddierowl on our latest DIY adventure to combine the charm of Dinky Dinkum Blossom Buds with the magic of handmade flower hats! Dive into a delightful crafter-noon and make floral crowns for your kiddos to match their Blossom Buds. Let your imagination bloom alongside your Dinky Dinkum friends!
Start by cutting a circle out of cardboard (a little larger than the size of your child’s face). Cut a smaller circle within your original circle to create a cardboard ring approximately 4cm in width.
Cut petals out of coloured foam. You can use whatever shape and colour you like. We used around 9-12 petals, but it will all depend on the petal shape chosen and width of your child's face.
With a hot glue gun, glue petals to the back of your cardboard ring. Wait for the glue to dry before moving on to Step 4.
Cut a 6cm strip of yellow felt and make small cuts along one side of the strip it to create a fringe. Cut the strip into segments and glue around the centre of your flower using your hot glue gun (covering up your cardboard ring).
Turn the flower over and punch two holes, one at either side of your cardboard ring, using a hole punch. Attach elastic string to your flower hat (approximately 20cm long - but measure on your child’s head first for the exact length required.) Double knot your string to either side of the hat.
Your flower hat is ready to twinkum with your Dinky Dinkum Blossom Buds!
