Hi!! Today I have another fun craft idea you can do with your kids… and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, I’m sure all of our kids want to show us how we are the queen of their hearts and what better way show that is with a crown! So, lets get started!
- Banners Set 1 – Mari Koegelenberg
- Patisserie Encore – SugarPlum Paperie
- feathers, googlie eyes, rhinestones, glitter, etc.
1. In your editing program, flip the banner pattern upside down and place in the middle of the workspace. Next move two more banner patterns, decrease the size and over lap on each corner of the middle pattern. Create two 1×11 inch stripes to be used for increasing the size to fit around the head.
Note – if you are doing a crown, leave them all the same size, resizing to fit 3 across on an 8.5×11 workspace.
2. Print and cut out your crown.
3. Now it’s time to turn it over to the kiddos to decorate!! As you can see, I’ve incorporated the help of my kiddo and number one lamb, Rupert. As you may notice, I have some fun decorations to glue onto the crown… feathers, rhinestones, and my son’s favorite… googlie eyes… hehehe.
4. After the decorations have dried, attach one end of the crown to the other end. For us with *cough* larger heads… attach the 1 x11 inch bands and trim until it fits around the head.
5. And, of course, you need to try it on… and in my house, if mama has a crown… kiddo needs one too!
And here is the final product!! Don’t you just love my crown? I do feel like a queen! And even Rupert has a little crown…
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial and if you make a crown, I would LOVE to see them!!! My son has been asking when we can make more crowns!
Also to those in the States… Happy Mother’s Day!! And a very happy Mother’s Day to my own da mama! Love you, Mom!
