Little Hands – Flower Necklaces & Crowns

Rain, rain, rain and finally the promise of a few dry days. While some plants are struggling from too much water, others are enjoying the “tropical” weather like New England campers in the Caribbean. Nature is fueled by a spirit of perseverance and finds ways to show its prowess under any sky. This brings us to flowers.

Summer is a time for weddings and outdoor feasts on tables decorated with flowers. Children love to express their creativity with the tools and materials nature willingly shares, so we thought it would be fun to find easy tutorials for making wearable art with flowers. Without further ado, here is another artful round-up.
