Great for dress up or party gifts.

I made these for all the party guests at my daughter’s Princess Sofia Party. And prince crowns for all the boys (a bigger version of these). The kids loved them and most of them still have them so they can certainly survive a bit of wear and tear (they get a bit harder than just ordinary chart paper because of the glitter and glue)

I used gold coloured chart paper because you don’t have to worry about the inside of the crown later then. If you use a different colour you may have to add glitter or paint the inside of the crown as well.

The crown can also easily be done without the eyelet tools, but the elastic string is more likely to tear though the paper without it. The eyelets and punch tool are usually also available in the local market at the shop which sells sequins, buttons and string.

The total time includes the drying of the glue.

Step 1

Start by tracing the outline of the crown onto the paper. You can download the template above. I prefer tracing with the a bamboo stick to avoid pen marks later.

Step 2

Roll the crown up and staple it (or glue it). I prefer stapling as it’s easier and the staples will be hidden later.

Step 3

Insert a bamboo stick about 1cm from the bottom of the crown through and through. This is the easiest way to make the holes in the right place.

Step 4

Attach the eyelets with your punch or the punch tool and hammer. This way the paper won’t tear when the child pulls the elastic string later.

Step 5

In a disposable cup add the fevicol and about 1/4 water. Cover the entire crown with the glue mixture.

Step 6

Sprinkle the glitter on top. This can get quite messy so I prefer to have a paper sheet underneath. That makes it easier to clean up the leftover glitter and put it back in the bag.

Step 7

Leave it to dry upside down. This way the spikes will end up coming slightly out -like the real princess way.

Step 8

Attach the elastic string and it’s ready! Decorate the crown with flowers, beads or stickers if you prefer. I hope you enjoyed this princess craft. Please let me know how you got on and if you made anything differently. We can all benefit from your experience. Happy Crafting!
