There's no better way to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III than with a fun craft project – either to keep as memorabilia or use to decorate your street party or coronation celebration.

There are so many brilliant Union Jack crafts to choose from – whether you love knitting, sewing, paper craft or crochet, there's an easy craft project for you!

Crafters from across the world have been taking to social media to share their Union Jack craft projects. There are so many inspiring ideas to choose from but we've rounded up our favourites.

Happy crafting!

Fun handprint flags with little ones

We love the idea of getting little ones excited for the coronation with crafts like this one from Stacy on TikTok.

She shared a video of her handprint flags, made by painting a child's hand with a union flag and printing onto a piece of white card. Stacy then cut the card out and glued ribbon to the back of it, before sticking it all on a piece of gold card and cutting around the outline again.

Stacy finished the make by taping a wooden stick to the back.

The perfect flag for children to wave while watching the coronation ceremony!

Create your own coronation crockery

If you're feel really creative, why not make a stunning keepsake plate like David did on TikTok?

He shared a step-by-step video to make his plate, from glueing a Union Jack onto the bottom of the plate, to decorate with a gold painted edge, to finishing with a white painted bottom.

Fly the flag with tape resin

These Union Jack cards are so easy to make – and the perfect addition to your street party decorations.

Create Make and Play shared a video on TikTok of their resin tape Union Jacks, which involve using the tape to create super-straight lines on each flag.

We think these would look fab pegged on string or ribbon as bunting across a street party table.

Wave the colours at the ceremony

These Union Jack sticks from Katie Taylor couldn't be easier – and are a perfect craft activity for adults and children to do together in the build up to the coronation ceremony.

All you need are some sticks or twigs and yarn in red, white and blue. Wrap the yarn around the twigs for your own version of the Union Jack flag. They're perfect to wave while welcoming in the new king!
