1. Measure the circumference of your child’s head and cut a length of white card the length of the circumference plus 4cm and 5cm deep. Cut your paper doilies in half and then cut cut patterns along the edges if you want to (see Picture).
2. Mix up some silver paint and PVA glue in a ratio of 50:50. Coat your length of card with the paint/glue mix then stick the doily halves along one side of the card to make a pattern.
3. Gently coat the doilies in the silver paint/glue mix (dabbing gently works well, then the doilies won’t break).
4. Sprinkle with silver glitter and leave to dry.
Once dry, fit the sparkly tiara to your child’s head, overlapping and stapling the end to make it secure.
1. Cut the card into the crown shape using the measurements shown in picture.
2. Cut the paper doilies in half. Mix up some silver paint and PVA glue in a ratio of 50:50. Paint your crown shape with the silver paint/glue mix. Use the silver paint/glue mix to attach the doilies to the crown, coat gently in the mix.
3. Stick on the jewels.
4. Spread glue along the base of crown and attach the cotton wool balls.
5. Cut small pieces of black paper or card and carefully glue a few onto the cotton wool balls, spacing evenly along the base of the crown. Leave to dry.
6. Fit the base of the crown to your child’s head and secure card with staples. Remove from your child's head and bring the two side pieces together to make the top, trim off any excess to achieve the shape you want and secure with staples.
Bring front piece all the way to the back of the crown, trim off any excess to achieve the shape you want and secure with staples.
7. Fill the inside of the crown with purple tissue paper and secure with some sellotape.
We really hope you enjoy making and wearing your crown!
