family craft | painterly style crowns

This weekend we got all painterly with some painterly style crowns. Max's crown from 'Where The Wild Things Are'  (by Maurice Sendak ) inspired the shape of ours. I've always loved Max's crown!

To make our painterly crowns we simply cut tall, crown-shaped points out of plain white poster paper then used water color paints to create whatever design we felt in our hearts. Just like that! So straight forward you don't even needs steps to show you the way.

So to recap: cut out the crown, paint, let dry then staple together and voila! You have a crown.

Now go on, you little wild things and rule your artsy kingdoms! 
Pin It!
