At the beginning of this month it was my gorgeous niece’s 1st birthday, I wanted to make her a gift. I was inspired by something I saw on pinterest and decided to make all three of my lovely nieces a crown each, princesses for a day!
Thick Felt (I used green, purple & blue)
Cotton (I used two types of flowery and one blue with white spots)
Hairbands (I used yellow, purple & blue – thick material bands make it easier to stick the crowns on)
I cut a rectangle of felt for each crown, the felt I bought had one sticky side, so I stuck a matching piece of patterned cotton onto each piece of coloured felt and cut it to fit the felt.
Next I glued the crowns into circles and used pegs to hold them until the glue dried.
Once the glue was dry, I folded the crowns in half and cut triangles to make the points.
Lastly I glued each crown to a hairband and glued a circle of felt to fill in the bottom of each crown. The final products are below, I’m really pleased with them.
