*Paper Plate

*Markers (Optional)

Step #1

Print and cut out the Laurel Crown Template on green paper.

You can also save a TON of time by printing a copy of the template and cutting out one leaf, then stacking multiple pieces of green paper and cutting around that leaf.

Step #2

Trace the inner circle of the paper plate and draw two lines from the inner circle to the outer edge of the plate. The lines should be 2-4 inches apart from each other.

Cut on the lines you drew.

Drawing the lines is optional, but it acts as a guide for where to cut if your Lil’ is doing the cutting.

Step #3
Flip the plate upside down.
Step #4

Glue the leaves on to the crown making sure to cover all the white.

Step #5

Allow the crown to dry and wear your crown with gold medal winner pride!
