Did you catch my Princess Party yesterday? Well, it is pretty common knowledge that you can’t have a princess without a crown. The only problem is that my little princesses have a hard time when it comes to store-bought crowns. I understand, I was the same way when I was young. The hard plastic digging into your head is not a joyful way to spend a party.
So, I decided to figure out how to make a princess crown that my daughters would wear. They don’t keep much in their hair. Flowers and bows get pulled out, headbands come off almost immediately. So, I was left trying to figure out how to make a princess crown with elastic. And, that’s when the lace came into play!
What you will need to make your own princess crown:
9 inches of lace
1: Figure out how much elastic you will need. My 6 year old needed 11 inches of elastic + 9 inches of lace = 20 inches total. My 2 year old was just 2 inches less of elastic making hers 18 inches. You could either measure your child’s head and make it slightly smaller, or use a current elastic headband as a measurement. 2: Glue the ends of the elastic to the back ends of the lace. 3: Let it dry.
