Have a little fun after you wipe…

Well ladies and gentlemen, I was feelin crafty with the young ones, (2 and 4 year old little girls to be exact) when I came across a pin… CROWNS OUT OF TOILET PAPER ROLLS! It was easy enough for the girls to enjoy and definitely was a craft that stayed in my budget!  All you need to start is a toilet paper roll, scissors, whatever you would like to decorate with (we used washable paint), and a bobby pin.

First you cut your crown shape from the toilet paper roll, i just did triangles. If your child is old enough draw lines for them to cut along by themselves!

Next cut a slit at the base, about a 1/4 inch wide and 1/8 inch from the base.  This is where you will put your bobby pin!

I hung this on the wall behind my couch.  I wanted something different yet artsy so i traced my pots and pan lids onto cardboard.  Cut out the center of some and painted or covered the rest in scrapbooking paper.  And then of course put a little modge podge on it to finish it up! that simple!!!!
