A special order was delivered to The Workshop of Wonder and Magic. It was requested they create four crowns to be worn on Christmas day. Crowns to be worn at the dinner table. Four crowns to replace flimsy paper crowns that tore and ripped. Paper crowns that fell into gravy and mashed potatoes. Paper crowns that horror of horrors might even catch fire from the table candles.
Two of the paper crowns were to be encrusted with pearls and jewels and topped with peacock feathers. Beautiful Crowns for princesses and queens to wear at dinner.
Each jewel applied to the crowns carried wishes for all things happy and wonderful. As the crowns were finished they were weighed to be certain they carried just the right amount of happy and wonderful.
Two of the crowns were to be fashioned in the colour scarlet and majestic with many diamonds. These were noble crowns. Crowns for princes and kings. Crowns to be cherished. Worn for one festive evening then safely tucked away for another year.
Magic is to be shared. To create your own crowns of great magnificence draw a profile or check the internet for patterns. Journey to your favorite craft or dollar store and gather a stash of stick- on jewels. Put on your favorite carols. Pour yourself a glass of wine or a cup of tea and have a glorious time making your own crowns for Christmas dinner.
