Fit for a queen! Well, maybe...
My friend wants to be the queen, and all good queens have a crown - so I decided to make her a crown for her birthday. I hope she likes it! Thankyou to everyone who helped me and posted on my thread on the board.
There is a photo for each step, but I'm having some uploading problems for some unknown reason - but a couple have uploaded - i'll add the others when and if I can.

  • Step 1

    Measure a 3cm wide strip along the length of your card. Alternate a 3cmx3cm square, a 3cm gap and a 3-point-shape. Cut out and use double sided tape to join the ends together.

  • Step 2

    Cut wavy pieces of card the width of the card, tape to the inside of the circular piece and join them in the middle, they will be too long - just cut off the excess.

    Step 3

    Add double sided tape to the inside of the 'crown' where the stars are.

  • Step 4

    Drape the red fabric over your fist and push it into the crown, making sure it sticks to the tape. Roughly cut the excess.

    Step 7

    The best bit - adorn your crown in glitter and sparkly things - i put a strip of glue along the wavy bits of card and put glitter on it. I put stick on gems onto each corner of the squares and a cross in glitter and gems on the tips of the 3 point shapes.

  • Step 8

    Press split pins through the card and fabric, slide a paper clip onto them and flatten out the split pin.

  • Step 9

    Get your piece of white fabric, I used thick white elastic but the ideal thing would be faux fur, and stick on some double sided tape.

  • Step 10

    Stick the fabric around the base of the crown and draw on some black spots.

  • Step 11

    Finally slide the headband through the paper clips (the headband I used was part of a pack of 5 for £1 from Primark) and there you have it!
