Indian Headdress Crayon Holder

Indian Headdress Crayon Holder

Our Thanksgiving children's table is always full of art supplies and crafts to entertain the kids. This year my children helped create some fun touches to make it even more festive. We made these adorable Indian headdresses out of paper rolls and feathers. My kids can't wait to sit at their table--I may even join them!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. toilet paper tubes
  2. masking tape
  3. feathers
  4. felt
  5. glue
  6. pipe cleaners
  7. crayons
  1. Any cardboard tube will work for this, but if you have a sturdy one that came from a saran wrap or aluminum foil roll, they will hold the crayons the best. I cut the rolls to about 2" tall before getting the kids.

  2. My daughter was excited to personalize the table for her and her cousins. She got a strip of masking tape and began adding feathers to it.

  3. Once she was happy with her feather arrangement, she wrapped it around one of the rolls.

  4. We cut a strip of felt to wrap over the tape and used some tacky glue to hold it in place.

  5. Lastly, we added some brightly colored pipe cleaner around the paper roll and placed our crayons in our new festive crayon holders. We always cover the kids' table with paper for coloring and a few other supplies to make this table a fun and inviting one for the kids.
