Felt Crowns for Play (birthday or dressup Part II)

I have been making felt crowns as I mentioned in the first felt crown post.
For the children to play prince and princess dress-up 
in class at our pre-school.
Or really, 

knowing children and their endless imaginations, 
they could become anything wearing these crowns, 
couldn't they?

 Both of these crowns look fairly traditional I think.
I made these first, with the idea of simplicity, pastel colours 
and felt shapes to imitate gemstones.

Then I allowed myself to be inspired by what I see around me every day.
The scenes that take my breath away here on the Sunshine Coast.

The fairy-tale forest.
Mother Nature's sanctuary.
Our surrounds, 
where imagination runs free and real magic can happen.

 I hope you like them.
Happily, the children do.
