I made this crown to go with my daughter's Cinderella dress up dress. She was Cinderella for Halloween, and already had the dress. I wanted to make a unique crown to go with her costume.
You could make this any time to add to your child's dress up wardrobe! It's not just for Halloween.
I went to the craft store and purchased a lace that a crown like design. I didn't want something that was flat on both sides. I already had the Mod Podge and gold spray paint.
I laid the lace out flat on a piece of cardboard and brushed it heavily with Mod Podge. I let it dry, then flipped it over and did the same thing on the other side. When that was dry, I measured it around my daughter's head and fastened it with a safety pin.
Next, I took it outside, set it upright (as shown in the pic) and sprayed it gold. It only took one coat. I kept the safety pin in. It wasn't even visible, and allowed me to adjust the size based on how her hair was fixed. NOTE: I did not leave the crown in their dress up bin. I kept it on the counter, out of reach, and allowed her to play with it when I could supervise!
So simple, and she just loved wearing it!
