Hello everyone! It’s Eva here today bringing you a fun and easy Paper Crown you can make with your kids.
My 3 year old, Lorenzo, told me a few days ago he wanted a crown so I thought this assignment would be perfect to craft with him and make a fun and easy king crown. I tried to do everything with him and he was happy to help, cut and use all the tools he isn’t allowed to use on a regular basis!
I used my Trim and Score Board to cut two 6×12 inch yellow cardstock strips . I put the paper on and he used the cut blade. I also made a mark on both strips at 4 inch height.
I placed my strips on the Banner Punch Board at the 6 inch mark and my son used the blade to cut from the 4 inch mark to the top. The blades are tiny but sharp so never leave you kid unattended!
We also used the Cool Kids stack from DCWV and the Tear Guides to create a decor for the base of the crown. I held the Tear Guide in place and my son used the water pencil, he loved using this tool!
I asked him what shape he wanted on his crown and he chose this hexagon because it looked like a jewel. We used the Clear Cut Punch together and cut 7 hexagons from this lovely Holiday Jewels Stack from DCWV.
We also used the pompom maker to make a lilac pompom for the top of the crown, he had fun rolling the yarn in the tool and I cut and assemble the pompom afterwards.
We attached the hexagons with foam dots and to embellish them we used buttons. To embellish the other tips of the crown we punched several circles with the Reinforce Hole Punch.
Finally I attached everything with the new USB Glue Gun, the detail tip was perfect to attach those tiny circles on top of the crown.
I measured my son’s head and assembled the crown with my USB Glue Gun.
He was so happy and could not wait to try it! He is definitely the King of the House!
Crafting with my son was very fun! I hope you try this craft with your family, remember that the most important thing is they have fun and be safe!
Have a great day!
