Princess Tiara Tutorial

What little girl doesn't love dressing up as a princess?
And what proper princess doesn't have a tiara?

Today I'm going to teach you how to make a simple and easy princess crown or tiara for your little Princess.

And no princess outfit is fully complete without a princess wand.
In case you missed the princess wand tutorial check it out here.

Princess Crown or Tiara Tutorial

-headband (The purple glitter headband and the pink headband came in a 2 pack in the dollar section at Target)
-hot glue gun

Step 1:
Make a crown template out of card stock or scrap paper.
This is a little tricky to explain...
Basically you need to come up with a crown shape at the top of your template and then leave a bunch of extra room at the bottom. It might be helpful to scroll down a bit to see how we are going to attach the felt to the headband to get a better idea how to make your template.
Then, once you have your large template, make a smaller crown shape that fits inside the top of the larger crown shape as an accent.

Step 2:
Cut your crown shapes out of felt using your templates as a guide.

Step 3:
Wrap the larger crown piece around the headband as shown above.
Add a strip of hot glue to the top center of the headband and to the inside of the crown shape, then quickly press down to secure it to the headband and the back piece of felt.

Wow, I feel like I'm doing a really awful job of explaining this. Hopefully the pictures are helpful to clarify things.

Step 4:
Glue on your smaller crown piece.

Step 5:
Following the shape of the large crown piece, cut the back piece of felt to match.

Step 6:
Decorate your princess tiara/crown with rhinestones, glitter or puffy paint to your liking and...


A beautiful princess tiara for your little princess!
