Anyone made the crepe paper crown?

I just borrowed a book from the library called Alterknits by Leigh Radford, its a fairly recent book published last year. There is a pattern for a crown knitted with crepe paper, looks really funky and I thought it would be great to make these for Christmas instead of those boring crowns that come out of the bon bon cracker things.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone had made this before, how easy is it to stop the paper tearing? and does the colour bleed onto your head when you wear it? I don’t think the family would be too happy if they walked away with green and red heads LMAO

I was just looking at that same pattern yesterday! I am going to make it for my daughter for one of her bridal showers and for her bridesmaids. I’ll let you know if their hair turns colors!

hehehe that could make for interesting weding photos :teehee:
