This post was originally part of Home Spun – Threads’ Summer Soirée: Craft Camp for Kids. I’m re-posting it here now and including it in Series 6: The Box Chain. In today’s tutorial, I actually show you how to make the chains step-by-step. Exciting stuff. I hadn’t done that before. But here ’tis . Hopefully any questions you may have had about the box chains will be clarified (although I do think you know how to make these already).
- junk mail and/or old gift wrap
- brown craft paper (or any large flexible paper; newspaper works great)
- pair of scissors
- PVA glue/glue stick
15. Cut out a piece of craft paper to fit around your child’s head adding 3 inches (7.5 cm) for an overlap. We made ours 24 inches (60 cm) long by 9 inches (23 cm) wide. Fold the craft paper in half lengthwise. Apply glue between the layers leaving 3 inches (7.5 cm) at both ends free of glue.

This is awesome! I want to do a version of it for my oldest! We need a crafty project for the summer!
Fantastic! I was looking for something in wreath design that was unusual but not actually too difficult. This is exactly right for me. Thanks so much for sharing!
