So its my birthday week and I can’t think of a more festive way to celebrate then with a crown. Am I right?
Well, rather than just buying a set of the boring foam ones at the store, we thought why not make our own. What is fun about this is that while at the craft store, you can pick out whatever kind of card stock you’d like.As you can see we were catering to some littles and some bigs (me!)
I made a quick template on my silhouette and was able to use it to cut the thinner card stock ones out. The thicker glitter card stock was either too thick for the machine or I just don’t know what setting to put them on (which is most likely the case) and so for those we printed out a template and traced it and cut them ourselves.
I created a free PDF template of the crowns for you in the case you don’t have a cutting machine. You can do one of two ways. Print the template right on the paper, or print it out on copy paper, cut them out and then use it as a template. Once you have them cut its all about letting the kids decorate to their hearts content. We used stickers and sequins and puff balls.We even found a bag of feathers in the clearance at Michaels and used them.Then using the round elastic cord, cut piece approximately a foot long. We found that length fit both the kids heads and the adults. Using a hole-punch on each side, tie the cord to the crown and viola, you have yourself some fancy crowns that the kids absolutely adore. P.S. this is my crown. Pink glitter with puffs. Just need to add my pink and yellow feather and I’ll be set for tomorrow! MWH Boy was in love with his Spiderman crown. He called himself Spider Knight. HAHAHA.Auntie Jen got to wear it for our playdate since its her birthday too! See fun for both kids and adults 🙂
