Take one large box, fold the bottom & top sections inside the box.
Stick white paper around the outside of the box (we used a double sided tape & a roll of paper for quickness). Decorate the outer top edge of the box with a little gold & glitter for that extra sparkle!
To make the wheels, take two paper plates & two smaller circles of card (we cut our circles from a cereal packet) cover with paint of your choice. Minnie chose more gold... well it is for a Royal Princess! ;)
Minnie decided to add some sparkle to the wheels - very glam!
To create the red & blue hearts we painted some recycled card (with brushes & fingers) & left to dry, then cut out simple heart shapes.
|These would make great bunting too!|
We stuck these onto the carriage along with some flower shapes we had left over from another craft.
To make the shoulder straps I made four holes at opposite ends of the box using scissors (not a job for little hands). Minnie then threaded red, white & blue ribbon through the holes, & to secure them I tied them together. (You'll need to measure the length of the straps before attaching.)
We stuck on the wheels, & I cut a hole in the front of the box so we could slide Minnie's hobby horse through!
We just needed a crown for the Princess & then we were off!
|Get me to the Church on time!|
|Taking a breather|
|Just checking the horse is OK!|
|The famous Royal wave|
We also made Royal Wedding pom-poms using red, white & blue ribbon.
To create the curls, tie the ribbons tightly together & carefully slide each piece of ribbon along the side of a pair of scissors (not a job for little hands). To make the ribbons thinner, tear each ribbon in half starting at the bottom, Minnie did a great job doing this. To make the handle a little neater, wind a piece of ribbon around the tied ends & seal with tape.
Perfect for a Royal Wedding parade!
