Girl Scouts creates so many opportunities for girls to grow and learn about themselves and their world with a focus on personal and community responsibility. The Girl Scout Law is learned from the earliest stage of Girl Scouts in the Daisies through a series of patch earning experiences that create a colorful daisy. Each patch is a petal that stand for a piece of the law. When the girls complete, it is a big deal to them, and to their leader. I have created a darling wreath of the daisy with the colors that stand for the different petals. It is a great way to celebrate completion. It also serves a fantastic door decoration for meeting days.
This is the Girl Scout Law.
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong,
and responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place,
and be a sister to every Girl Scout.
I created a water color daisy to share the colors of the petals and their part in the law.
To make the wreath, you will need the following materials.
- Eleven 9” x 12” craft cuts in Classicfelt in a variety of Colors for the Daisy and Center.
- Dresden Template (From Nancy’s Notions)
- Scissors or Rotary Cutter
- Styrofoam Ring (Make It Fun Crafts)
- Clear Tacky Glue
- Fabric Stiffener
Cut out your petals using the template.
Glue the petals to the Styrofoam ring completely covering it.
Add a blue circle in the middle with glue.
Once the glue is all dry, spray wreath with fabric stiffener. Add heart shaped cutouts if desired then add ribbon to hang your wreath and you are done. Ta da.
This would be a darling project to do on a tiny scale too. The completed mini daisy wreaths would make great S.W.A.P.S. Learning and discussing the meaning of the different petals helps girls develop valuable skills that will support their success throughout their entire lives. Extending the conversation to include crafting and making certainly enhances the experience and make great memories.
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® Classicfelt; Kunin® Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
Cheers to the Girl Scout Law,
