Here's a craft project that's fit for a king or queen! You can wield all the power in your castle when you wear a special crown you've made yourself. Whether you want a Halloween accessory or a playtime prop, your crown will give you just the right look.

You can complete your costume by making other accessories fit for a king or queen, such as royal jewels (the press-on kind are fun), or a scepter or tiara made from sparkly chenille stems.

What You'll Need

Construction paper, tagboard, or craft foam

Decorations (chenille stems, fancy poms, and faux gems)

Glue

How to Make the Fit for a King or Queen Craft

Step 1: Cut a crown shape out of construction paper, tagboard, or craft foam. (Make sure it's wide enough to fit around your head. If you don't have a big enough piece, try gluing or taping 2 pieces together.)

Step 2: Decorate the crown with chenille stems, fancy poms, and faux gems. For extra sparkle, use metallic stems and poms. Use plenty of glue, and make sure you let it dry completely.
