Paper-Bag Crowns 

click to enlarge crafting1-1.jpg

It's good to be king — or queen — even if your crown is made of paper. This easy craft project is a great way to reuse grocery-store paper bags, and it lets kids use their imagination to create a personalized headdress. Add fabric for a veil, attach feathers for an exotic look, or front it with faux jewels. Then, your newly crowned royalty can go play! Thanks to Kids VT reader Gina Coughlin for sharing this gem of a craft idea that she saw at the Vermont Flower Show.

Begin by cutting off the bottom of the paper bag, leaving a tube.

Roll one end of the bag halfway, turning the bag inside out as you go.

Roll the other end of the bag to the halfway point.

Fold or crumple a piece of tissue paper and tuck it into the crown between the two rolled edges.
