I have three beautiful princesses and they love to dress up. One of our favorite dress up items is a ribbon crown, and it’s one of the easiest crowns to make! You can find everything you need at the Dollar store, which makes it totally affordable and fun!
You’ll need the following supplies:
Wired garland – 1 per child to make a double crown.
Step one: Wrap the garland around your child’s head to get the correct fit. Don’t make it so tight that they can’t get it on! Once you have the correct length, cut the wire garland and fashion it into a circle. Connect the wire edges together to stabilize the crown.
Step two: Decide how long you want the ribbon strands to be and double that length. Longer ribbon holds the curl better. Cut between 30-40 lengths of ribbon and set aside.
Step three: Fold one of the curling ribbon lengths in half. Put the folded edge on the crown and pull the 2 loose ends up and through, and pull tight. Continue to add ribbons until the crown is as full as your child wants.
Step four: shape the crown into a circle and place it on your child’s head!
Watch your child spin with delight! These crowns are a great addition to Christmas and party pictures when you want to add a little bit of Princessy fun.
