Olympic Laurel Wreath Crown Craft 1

Pin It
Here's an Olympic laurel wreath crown craft just in time for the 2012 London Olympics. The athletes in the ancient Olympic games didn't receive medals, but simply a laurel wreath crown and the glory of the fans.

Materials:

  • large paper plate
  • green and light green construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • ribbon

Directions:

  1. Cut the center out of a large paper plate.
  2. Cut about a quarter out of the ring, so it fits the head better.
  3. Cut many simple leaves from green and light green paper.
  4. Start at the back end of the paper plate rim and start gluing the leaves in alternating colors down one side, then the other.
  5. Continue gluing the leaves together past the ends of the paper plate a few inches.
  6. Secure the bottom of the leaves that extend out with some tape.
  7. Tie a ribbon around the back of the wreath.
  8. Wear your Olympic laurel wreath crown craft watching the games or at your next toga party.
