Forest Crown

This is made from a simple origami technique that is often used to make bracelets. Scaled up it creates a lovely crown.

I used a variety of vintage Child Education posters from the 1960’s and 70’s to construct this crown. These posters have a nice flexible quality to them making them perfect for this project. I was given a large pile of these, and whilst some of the illustrations are excellent others are not so and it is these which I have used. I chose posters with woodland/forest themes and colours. Once folded the illustrations disappear and in their place new designs, made from random selections, appear creating something quite magical.
