How to Make a Goddess of Liberty Crown

Step 1: Cut out a 10-inch-high piece of construction paper that will be long enough to fit around your head, plus a few inches to staple it closed.

Step 2: Cut long, pointed triangle shapes in the long end of the paper to make a crown shape.

Step 3: Cut two different-colored pieces of construction paper the same length and with the same pointed triangle shapes at the top. One piece should be 8 inches high, and the other should be 6 inches high.

Step 4: Glue each piece onto the next largest piece, and staple all the ends together. Now you have a beautiful layered crown.

Step 5: Use markers to write "Goddess of Liberty" on your crown. Decorate it with pretty designs.
