DIY children's felt crown
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 15 Jun, 2016
The school summer holidays are looming, and we all know what that means… Time to keep the kiddies entertained! Craft a cute embellished crown for sassy little princesses or princes that will provide hours of fun for all wannabe monarchs. All you need are some Craft Planet Felt Sheets and pompoms and you’re off to a flying start.
1. Create a base for the crown from two gold felt sheets. Cut the pieces to your desired height and snip approximately four points along the top of each. Trim three grey and three gold felt panels to the same shape and size as the points. Use these to cover the crown base pieces, alternating colours and stitching securely to the three end points of each. 2. On one piece, snip off the uncovered end point, leaving a little room for a seam allowance. On the other, trim the top of the uncovered point off – leaving a strip to adhere a piece of Velcro to. Fix the other side of the Velcro to the opposite end of the crown. 3. Join both sections by stitching the front faces together along the short edge. Open out and decorate the crown with a pretty crochet trim. Adhere Papermania gems to each section and embellish the top of each point with a Craft Planet pompom.
