It is currently summer here in New Zealand, and my garden is full of roses. So thinking of flowers I went back to one of the first newsletters I sent out and was excited when I re-discovered this craft. It is its turn to adorn the paper crafts for children site.
Celebrate summer with this fun to make version of the Hawaiian Lei.
You will need:
- colored paper
- drinking straws cut into short lengths
- wool and darning needle
Cut out some flower shapes, or if you want to go off on your own tangent, you could cut all sorts of other shapes. String them onto some wool by threading a piece of straw alternating with a paper shape. Keep going until it is long enough.
Then tie it off, put it on and do the ‘hula’!
