Making a floral crown for a Marian statue
Often, we like to make a crown of flowers for our statues of The Blessed Mother during the month of May. Making a crown can be a bit tricky, but this is the easiest way I found to make one….
You will need:
- variety of artificial flowers – appropriately sized for the statue you are crowning
- cloth ribbon – enough to tie around the statue’s head
- the statue you would like to wear the crown
- hot glue
Tie the ribbon around the statue’s head and knot it in the back.
Cut off the extra ribbon.
Hot glue the flowers onto the ribbon,
start from the back sides and work to the front of the crown.
You may use a bottle or bowl of similar size (instead of the statue) to hold the ribbon while you glue on the flowers. This will help you avoid getting glue on the statue. Place the ribbon back on the statue’s head occasionally as you add the flowers just to check how it’s fitting and looking.
Mother Mary, Pray for us!
