Aurora's Crown
Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages 5 to 8

Because her guardians were so intent on concealing Aurora's true identity in order to escape the wrath of Malificent, even she didn't know she was a princess until the good fairies told her so on her 16th birthday. As a symbol of her royalty, they presented her with a beautiful crown. Like hers, this jeweled headpiece is the perfect accessory for a brand-new princess.

What you'll need

  • Crown template
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Craft foam (light and dark yellow)
  • Tacky glue or a hot glue gun
  • Acrylic gems (sold in craft stores and large department stores)
  • A headband
  • Pinch-style clothespins

How to make it

  1. Aurora's Crown step 1

    Print out the template and cut it out. Then trace it onto a piece of light yellow craft foam.

  2. Aurora's Crown step 2

    Cut out the foam tracing and place it atop a piece of dark yellow craft foam. Trace the cutout, leaving a 1/4-inch border all the way around to create a second crown piece that's slightly larger than the first. Cut out the second tracing.

  3. Aurora's Crown step 3

    Glue the two cutouts together, centering the smaller one on top of the larger one. Then glue acrylic gems along the top of the crown. Allow the glue to thoroughly dry.

  4. Next, glue the lower edge of the crown to the headband, starting in the center and working your way out to the ends. If you opt to use tacky glue, you can hold the two pieces together with pinch-style clothespins until the adhesive dries. (To keep the clothespins from leaving an impression on the face of the crown, sandwich scrap pieces of craft foam between them and the crown.)
