Make a Jubilee crown with this easy step-by-step guide
Celebrate the Jubilee by creating your child her very own crown with this brilliant craft idea
Posted: 20 May 2012
This crafty crown idea is taken from The Farmyard Tales Big Book Of Things To Make And Do (Usborne, £9.99, ISBN 9780746089712)
1) Cut a long rectangle of thin cardboard that fits around your child's head, with a little overlap. Then, draw a line across the middle of it.
2) Draw points and crosses along the line. Cut out the crown shape, then paint it gold or silver on both sides.
3) When the paint is dry, cut a slit going down, a little way from one end. Then, make another slit going up, near the other end.
4) Bring the ends of the crown together. Slot them in place, with the ends inside, like this. Then, secure the ends with tape.
5) Cut eight little hearts from red paper and glue them to the crown. For a fur trim, glue cotton balls along the bottom.
6) For jewels, roll eight pieces of foil into little balls. Cover the balls with white glue and roll them in glitter.
7) Leave the jewels until they are completely dry. Then, glue them at equal spaces on the fur around the bottom of the crown.
8) Place a large plate on a piece of red crepe paper or tissue paper and draw around it. Then, cut out the circle.
9) Push the middle of the circle through the crown from the bottom. Tape the edge of the circle inside the crown, like this.
