I made these in anticipation of New Year’s Eve. I’m not good at keeping secrets, especially fun ones, so I let the kids have them before Christmas.
The crowns are made of cotton flannel with a stiff layer of interfacing in the middle. I plan to cut numbers and decorations out of felt to stick on them — this will be one way we can pass the many hours before midnight on New Year’s Eve. We’ll start that day with 2009 on them and, come midnight, we can replace the ’09 with ’10. Presto, chango! In the meantime, the crowns are being worn and enjoyed undecorated.
