Be a wonderful wizard or crowned royalty -- it's all in how you create the head piece! It's amazingly simple (and lots of fun!) to create a hat fit for a magician, princess, or wizard -- or a crown fit for a king or queen.
What a perfect addition to your dress-up wardrobe, and what fun to be able to say you made it yourself!
What You'll Need:
- Colored poster board
- Clean, round, empty ice cream tub
- Gold star stickers
- Poster paints
- Glitter glue
- Sheer or sparkly fabric
How to Be a Wonderful Wizard or Crowned Royalty:
Step 1: For the wizard's hat, use the colored poster board to shape a cone; tape the cone in place.
Step 2: The decorations can be as plain or fancy as you wish. Use the gold star stickers, markers, poster paints, and glitter glue to decorate the cone.
Step 3: When the decorations are dry, use glue or tape to fasten a corner of the sheer or sparkly fabric just inside the top of the hat.
Step 4: For a crown, use the ice cream tub as a base for building a crown, or make a base out of posterboard.
Step 5: Cut the poster board to make a saw-toothed strip.
Step 6: Glue the strip around the base of the ice cream tub to make the points, then bejewel and bedazzle your crown.
