Craft: Butterfly Princess Crown

July 9, 2014

So, we decided to go with a Butterfly Princess Crown but you can go for a prince crown and decorate it with whatever you find more “princely”.

What you will need:

  • White cardboard (you can use paper but the cardboard is less likely to break)
  • Colouring pencils or crayons
  • Decorations – eg. sequins, glitter, fuzzy balls, leaves, flowers, etc.
  • Glue
  • A pair of scissors
  • Butterfly templates (you can either make your own or go to  http://www.firstpalette.com/tool_box/printables/butterflies.html. They have cute butterfly templates which you can download and print)

Directions:

  1. Spend time with your child relaxing and colouring in Butterflies (or choose another printable).
  2. Decorate the Butterflies with your preferred decorations.
  3. Cut out the Butterflies
  4. Cut a long strip of cardboard that will fit around your head (or staple two shorter pieces together).
  5. Colour in the strip (headband).
  6. Glue the decorated Butterflies to the headband but don’t glue their wings down.
  7.  Enjoy some princess treats together wearing your new crowns!
