DIY paper chrysanthemums

It’s spring, chrysanthemums everywhere.

We are happy that our garden is full of chrysanthemums – they never stop growing and no matter how many plants you cut or pull, more and more flowers pop out of the ground.

What we like to do every spring is make chrysanthemum crowns and wear them around our heads.

We also love that we can do all of our projects outdoors, enjoying the sunshine, the smells, and the butterflies flying around.

And today, this chrysanthemum craft we’re making is about appreciating spring and all the good things it brings us, so come along and make a craft!
