We made Jeweled Crowns for our South Korea craft this week. The Koreans were known for their metal-craft skills. They created these elaborately decorated metal crowns for their royalty’s attire. Each crown contained countless jewels and precious stones! This fun craft is from our Global Art book.
- Construction paper or Foam crowns (I got mine at Michael’s Hobby Store)
- Decorations such as glitter, jewels, markers, & anything else you like!
Step 1: Cut out crown shape, or use pre-cut ones like we did.
STEP 2: Decorate as desired:
STEP 3: Wear them to dinner!

The daisies at the top are really cute and the tabs look good too.
Fun and sweet! Your kids are so adorable! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂
Korean knotting is also very popular. There's a number of books on Amazon.com about it including this one:http://www.amazon.com/Elegant-Knotted-Jewelry-Techniques-Projects/dp/0896898180/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s;=books&qid;=1285948602&sr;=1-2Pretty neat stuff! Wish I could have taken a class on it, I really wanted to learn how to do some of this since it looks so neat.
