How To Make a Statue Of Liberty Crown For the 4th Of July
You Will Need
  • Scissors
  • 2 white, 9-in. paper plates
  • Pencil
  • 2 pieces of green construction paper
  • Stapler
  • Glue
  • Green paint
  • Paint brush
  • Ruler (optional)
  • Child (optional)
step 1Shape clay
Shape one shade of clay into a rectangle about 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and 1 inches thick. Do the same with the other two colors, and set aside your three leftover lumps of clay.
spacer tip Measure with a ruler before cutting.
step 2Stack rectangles
Stack the three rectangles on top of each other.
spacer tip Place the plate on the child’s head to check for fit. If it is too tight, cut more from the center, leaving a smaller rim.
step 3Cut in half & stack
Cut the stack in half with your plastic knife and re-stack the two halves, one on top of the other.
step 4Press stack down
Press the stack down to its original size and shape.
step 5Cut in half again
Cut the stack in half again. Now you’ll have two stacks with lots of colored layers. Set them both aside.
step 6Form cylinder
Pick one color of leftover clay and roll it into a ball. Then place it on your work surface and use the palm of your hand to roll it back and forth until it forms a cylinder that’s about the same length and height as your stacks.
step 7Cut slice
Cut a long, even slice from one of your clay stacks—not like you’re slicing bread, but lengthwise from end to end.
