Of course my girls wanted to decorate crowns.. ahem… I mean, tiaras, at their recent birthday party. I had plans to take the easy way out and buy pre-cut paper crowns… ahem… I mean, tiaras, at the local art shop, but they were all out and so was every other shop I tried. I checked out a few printable templates online but none of them were quite right, so there was nothing left to do but make them myself.
We managed to fit two tiaras on an A4 page. You can either print them straight on to your coloured card (we used cover paper) or make a template (we used an empty cereal box) and trace around the template onto each page. Cut out your crowns and punch a hole on each side.
Decorate your crowns any way you like, then thread elastic through the holes and tie, testing it to make sure it fits the head of the intended prince, princess, king, queen, or elven wizard prince first. For the party I tied elastic onto one side of all the crowns before the event so they were still flat and easy to decorate but it made it quick and easy to tie them up and put them on when done.
