What are you most proud of?
My 7 yo daughter made this crown for her cousin's first birthday. She's working on other projects from this class for her Halloween costume, but put that on hold to do this project with minimal assistance. Pretty proud of her!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you have small(er) hands doing most of the tying on this project, we found a handle of a wooden spoon worked well to cut down on frustration. Place the spoon on top of the wire, tie around both wire and spoon handle, pull spoon out of knot and then tighten knot. Something about the larger size of the initial knot was very helpful.
