Firecracker Crowns!

Firecracker Crowns! 
This project comes from the July/August issue of Family Fun Magazine
Directions:  Arrange 5 red and 5 white 2 1/2- by 12- inch craft foam strips side by side, alternating the colors.  Apply a 26-inch strip of blue tape across the panels about 1 inch from the bottom, wrapping the ends around to the back.  Decorate the tape with sticker stars or any other fun, festive shape.  Cut a 1/2-inch wide fringe in each panel starting from the top and ending just above the tape. 

Flip over the fringed foam and position a gold pipe cleaner in the center of each of the inner 8 panels so that the lower end is about an inch below the fringe.  Tape them in place. 
When your child is ready to wear the crown, wrap it around his/her head, overlapping the ends and securing them with a large paper clip!
Materials Needed:  white and red craft foam, scissors, blue tape, foam sticky stars, gold pipe cleaners
