Arty ideas to be a princess for a day

If your daughter would love to be a princess, they can get one step closer with this really lovely craft idea by Cathy aka Nurturestore. I love her really simple tissue-paper wedding bouquet, with really simple instructions you can get the girls to make it themselves. All you need is a couple of straws, tissue paper and sticky tape and et voilà – a bouquet fit for a queen!

And, of course, a little girl can’t be a princess without a crown! Lilla A and her daughter have made some gorgeous crowns so the whole family can feel like royalty when the big day comes around.

I love this wedding invitation by My Kids Eat Candy, who remembers Charles and Diana’s wedding fondly on her blog. She celebrated the Royal wedding some 30 years ago with her mum in America and says that it is one of her favourite childhood memories. 

These Royal Wedding invitations on Good to Know are perfect if your kids are wanting to invite their friends over for a tea and cake get-together on the big day. 

Create your own decorations

Christine Mosler has a top idea for eco-friendly families – recycled bunting. This one looks like real fun and again is a simple and cute way to celebrate the Royal Wedding without spending a royal fortune. All you need is a couple of plastic supermarket bags, some string and some glue (plus a couple of crafty kids to help out).

Missie Lizzie also shares her crafty designs for homemade bunting, this time with tissue paper in all the royal colours. A super idea for a rainy day during the Easter hols.  

What would a British Royal Wedding be without a stack of cakes? Good to Know has a very tasty recipe for union jack cupcakes – these will be the perfect accompaniment to a good cup of tea on 29 April.

This is a really unique idea by White Lily Green if you want to make a keepsake for the occasion – design your own Royal Wedding themed porcelain plates (definitely a spot-on gift for a nan or two!.

My favourite craft idea of all – Royal Wedding crafty cress! Charming little egg people with cress sprouting out of their bonnets, as created by The Gingerbread House.

If you have a blog post with some more crafty ideas then I would love for you to share it in the comments. I hope you all enjoy the bank holiday weekend!
