How To Make a Dandelion Crown

Welcome to Real Food RN! A blog with the mission to empower you to live your healthiest life possible, starting today.

Growing up there was a park in my town that had a large patch of grass that always FILLED with dandelions every spring. A good friend of mine and I used to go up there and lay in the flowers and just daydream for hours. Those were the days!

It was in that dandelion field that I taught myself how to braid dandelions into a dandelion crown. No glue, string, wires, or anything other than dandelions. Now every spring, I have to make one for my little princess!

 First, you gather the dandelions. You want as long of a stem as possible.

 Now gather about 6 dandelions with very long stems in your hand.

Divide the stems into three sections and begin to braid them as you would hair.

Each time you wrap the stems over, add two more dandelions.

 Wrap the other side over the newly added dandelions, and so on….

When you flip the crown over, the back will look like a braid.

 When you get it to the size you need for a crown, there will be loose stems at the end.

 Pull both ends together and wrap the lose ends into the rest of the braid, securing them by wrapping them in between the dandelion heads.

Continue wrapping the loose ends into the dandelion heads until they are all secured.

Give your crown to your little princess. It will last about one day.
