Felt head bands and Felt crowns


Isabel wanted her and Sofie to have crowns for their birthdays this year. And since I had some felt left over from previous projects I figured I would use it to make them some crowns that might last them a while.

Template for crowns were found at First Palette Your step by step guide to kids crafts. Other than the felt and the template I used my trusty glue gun and some beads I had from a snowflake project.


I folded the felt so it doubled to give it more strength and stability and used the template to draw the crown on the felt, then I used the scissors to cut it out.


I used the glue gun to glue it all together. The glue from the glue gun also add some extra stability to the felt.


I drew by hand the numbers and letters for the crowns. Isabel wanted to have her name on hers. I decided to not do that to Sofie’s crown.


Then I glued some beads around the points to add more visual interest and the bling the kids enjoy so much.


I found that the crowns needed a little bit extra stability on the front and used some more felt that I doubled up with the use of my glue gun.

I made sure it would fit and cut out the shape of the head point on it.


Then I glued it on on the back of the head of the crown.

I also wanted to make a banner for the girls and what else would I use but my ever trusted felt.


I drew the letters by hand on the felt and cut it out.


Then I glued the triangles onto some ribbon that I had on hand.

Because I only used supply I had on hand from other projects I spend absolutely nothing on this. Now I just have a bag of felt left that I am giving away if I can only find someone who wants it.
